Details on AMD RDNA 3 GPUs are coming thick and fast ahead of the Radeon RX 7000 series unveiling, with team red now sharing some info on the specs of its upcoming lineup of graphics cards. Turns out the likes of the RX 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT aren’t following in the footsteps of the Nvidia RTX 4090, rejecting the 12VHPWR power cable altogether.

After multiple reports of an Nvidia RTX 4090 melting cable issue, particularly with 12VHPWR adapters, concerns grew that AMD RDNA 3 graphics cards would also use this potentially problematic connector. However, it turns out that the Radeon RX 7900 XT and existing 6000-series cards won’t use it, according to Red’s team. Scott Herkelman.

This doesn’t mean you don’t need the best power supply you can find to power AMD RDNA 3 pixel pushers, as we don’t yet know how much power they will draw. That said, it’s likely that the best graphics card in the Radeon RX 7000 series, the Radeon RX 7900 XTX, will rival the RTX 4090 and drink an equally large amount of watts.

We can expect more details on AMD RDNA 3 on November 3rd, during the company’s official livestream event. You can expect reviews of the new Radeon RX 7000 series on PCGamesN in the near future, so stay tuned!
