Galaxy RTX 3090 Ti HoF with two 16-pin power connectors!

Just yesterday the new NVIDIA RTX 3090 Ti graphics card was officially launched. This graphics card makes use of the new 16-pin PCIe 5.0 power connectors. This connector can supply 600W of power to the graphics card. somewhat insufficient for Galaxy RTX 3090 Ti Hall of Famewhich, uses two PCIe 5.0 power connectors!

According to the data, the NVIDIA RTX 3090 Ti in its reference model has a consumption of up to 450W. Through overclocking and other adjustments, the consumption can be shot up to 500W, more or less. But the RTX 3090 Ti Galaxy (KFA2 in Europe) will have two 16-pin power connectors.

Excessive consumption in the new Galaxy RTX 3090 Ti Hall of Fame

The data and images published by this assembler show that it has two 12VHPWR connectors. These connectors can offer a power supply of up to 600W. This connector is characterized by having 12 power pins and 4 control pins.

It is interesting to see how the Galaxy-designed RTX 3090 Ti HoF has two of these connectors. Although the logical thing is to think of excessive energy consumption, the reason could be another.

Galaxy is an assembler that offers products specially designed and optimized for overclocking. The Hall of Fame are based on GPUs that offer high stability in terms of overclocking. In addition, they are used VRM power phases high quality to offer high precision voltages. All thinking about providing the best voltage and that advanced overclocking can be performed.

According to Galaxy data, this graphics card has a base consumption of 480W and can reach 516W with overclocking. The data indicates that with the 600W of the 12VHPWR connector and the 75W supplied by the motherboard’s PCIe interface, which add up to 675W, it would be more than enough.

Although not explained, it may be done to avoid potential overload issues. The power supply would be shared between the two connectors to offer a more stable and higher quality power supply.

NVIDIA leaves no one indifferent with this graphics card

Note that this graphics card comes with the GA102-350 silicon that has 10,752 CUDA Cores. It is accompanied by 24GB of GDDR6X memory running at 21Gb/s, with a 384-bit memory interface and 1008GB/s bandwidth.

The launch price of this graphics card is 2,249 euros, which is extremely high. Note that this graphics card is supposedly designed for 8K resolution. This resolution is still far from being a common reality, what’s more, 2180p (4K) resolution is far from being a standard.

The interesting thing about this graph is that it gives us a glimpse of what the future NVIDIA RTX 40 Series could be that would be launched during the last quarter of the year. Future Lovelace graphics are expected to be based on the PCIe 5.0 interface, offer outstanding performance and have very high power consumption.
