    Its just a 12v connector, so its no different than what we have now.
    * A single cable instead of two-three cables
    * Higher quality contacts specified
    * Thicker cable gauge specified
    * 600W power delivery capability through a single cable

    What I think is funny is everyone thinking that Nvidia "made this connector up".

    It's a standard 12-pin micro-fit. I can buy it today. If any of this is true, they're not using non-standard parts. They're just bringing another part into the mix. Why are people so freaking nuts? One news story read, "Nvidia's new power connector gives customers reason to buy Big Navi instead" and another says "New Nvidia power connector requires users to tear their PSU out of their PC!" Jesus fucking Christ......

    Clickbait, how bigger the clickbait the worse the article is.

    If you lack the knowledge you have to try something to get any readers.

    Gamer's Nexus saying likely OEM part only, AIB partner cards will be normal 2x8pin PCIe connectors.

    Which makes sense. Dell, HP, Lenovo.. already use their own shape PSUs and their own connectors on the motherboard. What's a new connector to them?

    They’re certainly ignoring the fact that those cable companies will no doubt create a 12 pin to molex adapter so someone can try and run the cards off some ancient Powmax Assassin. Because it’s never about whether you should.
