In recent days, all the attention of computer enthusiasts is focused on Intel Alder Lake-S processors, their performance, temperatures and power consumption. Many people are also waiting for a response from AMD, which should lead to either higher performance in games and software, or a decrease in prices.

However, the processor itself is not everything, and in many applications you also need a graphics card. The latest rumors are not optimistic in the case of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4000 series, as the top model can draw up to 500W of power.

This information seems a bit implausible, and in addition, as with any rumor, you need to approach these revelations with a certain amount of caution. However, it is not without reason that the new 12-pin PCI Express connectors according to the specifications can theoretically provide up to 600 watts.If the upcoming graphics cards have such a power consumption, we may face a noisy and warm generation or even older. and more expensive cooling systems. In addition, many people will have to replace the power supply with a new, more powerful one. I immediately remember the NVIDIA Fermi series…
