yea i saw this while at the convention, not sure why they just didnt call it a 4070 to begin with instead of having two standard 4080 SKUs

if you looked on ebay the cheaper ones are bout $300ish with some of the higher brands costing more. cheaper 3070's like that zotac if you will was to me a steal. i was watching a video of a guy repairing 3000's, kinda got me looking at ones not working. found a 3070 Ti listed for parts at $199, for me that TDP is way to high. i want to stick around 3060Ti or 3070 TDP, i think the extra 20watts on the 3070 is worth it. With the price difference being so small on ebay about 50ish it really is a no brainer. for the games im looking to play, the 1% being that much higher then the 3060Ti is worth the extra $50.WOW I paid 1K for my 3060ti a while ago........me being me and being impatient.
they will start with a 24v line first, more then likely. they may not make a 48v line till the 20000 line up.Yeesh. I thought that the cable burning thing was a bit dramatic, but shoving that amount of amperage through 6 pins is a strong requirement. May as well switch to 48V supplies for GPUs if that's the case.
well based on the rough numbers i could find if the connection for the crimped pin is only 136watt. that is assuming they are crimped, that connector needs more pins. they should get away from a 12v rail to be used on GPUs anyway with the kind of power they are using. i is the same evolution that happened with PC's. back in the day the 12v line barely has any support on it, because 90% of the power was being used from the 5v rail. some time around Pentium or PII did PSU's start to get a fatter 12v rail and 5v got cut down alot. the few current psu's i have looked at all have the same wattage 5V rail. It really is hardly ever used for devices, not to the extant 12v rail is today.
yea i hear ya, i was just meaning compared to older PC's. like i said in the post, there is still going to have a decent about of 5V support in a psu. Do you remember seeing this?IIRC, 5V covers usb and sata power. Optical, pcie expansion cards, etc.
