    Default Will the next gen of nVidia cards use 8 pin PEG?

    Hey guys, hope you're all ok in this terrible heat. The last few days have exceeded 100 where I live, with NO AC.

    Anyways, I wanted to know if any of you are privy to what cards use and what coming cards, such as the 9000 series nVidia cards, will use 8 pin PEG connectors, and if they do, will they also require a 6 pin?

    How much power do these cards really need???

    I think we've already discussed this.

    G90 will use the 6-pin + 8-pin as per PCI-SIG specification for 300W cards.

    hmm maybe not im not 100% sure how acurate this is,but they say it will use less power than a 8800gtx.
