RTX 3090 Ti: you will need 12 PCIe slots to power this graphics card

We thought we had seen all of the wacky records of the RTX 3090, but we were wrong. The manufacturer EVGA recently unveiled a configuration with a dual RTX 3090 Ti. Beyond making the PC that benefits from it overpowered, the latter needs four 16 Pin Gen 5 connectors. A power supply model that is not very available at the moment, which can be replaced by an adapter.

While waiting for the RTX 4000 Ada Lovelace to arrive this summer, Nvidia recently unveiled the RTX 3090 Ti, which is supposed to keep gamers waiting for the big day. “Supposed”, because it is far from affordable for all budgets. With an initial price set at 2250 €, it generally takes more than 3000 € to be able to obtain the beast. If you let yourself be tempted, however, it’s a real monster of power that comes to stay in your PC.

However, this is obviously still not enough for EVGA, one of the manufacturers of the RTX 3090 Ti. Not long ago, this one unveiled a configuration including two RTX 3090 Ti KINGPIN, which should, one imagines, display without problem from 40K to 60 FPS. However, such power does not come without annoyance. To power it, you need at least four 16 Pin Gen connectors.

This graphics card will cost you a lot of electricity

Only here, this type of food is not easily found on the market, even less in our context of current shortage. Also, as Cowcotland notes, it is possible to opt for an adapter consisting of three PCI Express 8 Pin connectors, or six connectors for a single RTX 3090 Ti or… a total of 12 connectors to power the whole thing. In other words, your electricity bill may be affected.

Indeed, you will probably have to fall for a separate power supply, only for the dual graphics card. The TGP of EVGA GPUs is 516 W, while the power limit is set at 1200 W. Which means that the KINGPIN configuration can go up to 2400 W. A record, most certainly, that we see difficult to democratize among the players.
