    Ill be on my 6800xt unless something drastically changes and i just bought my RM 850 a year ago.

    Nvidia 4090ti or we might need a 1600w psu and 650w consumption lol

    no-one asked for another useless pci-e connector and for those damn 1.6KW psu. move you ass dear engineers and make better power usage on your crap expensive hardware that burns itself.

    This is so damn relevant.
    GPUs and other hardware have been burning from bad design, components used or both.
    Do we really want to keep creeping on the power consumption?
    Has everyone forgot about global warming or just don't care?
    Also, I'd stay away from Asus until the lawsuits against them for lack of honouring warranties are over.

    I just hope whatever they pick for the new pci-e connector because standard across both brands unlike that stupid connector nvidia tried pushing on their reference models. Both nvidia and AMD need to get together on this one to make a standard so we don't need any bs adapters

    Just bought Corsair HX750 and I'm not going to upgrade for very hungry GPUs. Forget it.

    I'll be sticking with my dual 1500 watt PSU's for quite some time. At least until their ten year warranty is up. And that supposed "900" watt peak draw for a 3090....yeah I'm covered with a dedicated 1500 watt PSU just the GPU's.

    Man though. When I do a complete upgrade in four or so more years things are going to be friggin CRAZY!!!!

    Not everyone believes that global warming exists.....especially not in the US where politics have completely overridden anything remotely resembling sense over the last several years.....

    This is getting out of hand. Remember how everyone was obsessed with low power etc? It seems we are hitting physical limits pretty badly.

    I don't like where this is going. With current and soon ever going up electricity cost , it's just bad . It's not progress , it's just making beefier and beefier chips.

    If they kept TDPs under a reasonable level, this wouldn't be an issue. GPUs shouldn't be using more than 300 W MAX under full load, and CPUs (at stock), maybe 150W!!!

    Current state of thinking when come better pefromance is THROW more wattage at it. it is a piss poor way to increase performance and short sighted. 200+ wattage for most mid range gpu and most cpu are now pushing 200+ under load too. all my system i made to date barely pull 400 watts under full load. that probably wont be happen any time soon again. I sure wont be make another system using the 750watt psu i have it 5 years old at this point if not more.

    My main PC is a 6850K (150W OCed to 4 GHz), and a Radeon fury (stock clocks, -50% power, so draws 175 W), add on the ancillaries - maybe 5-600W, though I am running a 1500W PSU as a legacy from having multi-GPU setups...

    Multi GPU era is coming back , but this time GPUs will be stacked on one BIG die , fed by ONE big CABLE , fed by ONE BIG PSU....

    Just maybe :D

    A 5870 Xfire setup would draw @375 W...
