    You are correct, 2 6-pins would probably be a bad idea.

    This shouldn't be a huge issue for most people, since most new PSUs come with at least two 8 pin connectors. Ultimately there is little difference in the end when you consider even most high quality, high wattage PSUs, are currently running a single set of wires to power dual 8-pin connectors. Regardless of what the connector is rated for, I find it pretty hard to believe that NVIDIA is going to release a GPU that pulls over 500W at stock volts and temps. Cooling something like that would be pretty ridiculous on air.
    Yeah, early uses of the 12-pin will likely be conservative until proper power supplies or modular cable sets for existing power supplies are released.

      I've just realized I have a modular PSU from a reputable company so I can probably just buy a new cable lol

      I may upgrade to a 3080 depending on price, I thought a 2070 would be sufficient for 4K, but it's not. I get 30-35fps on medium settings in RDR2 at 4K.

        Another thing I've been hoping would happen for a long while is for all PSU vendors to use the same PSU-side pinouts as each other so you can just buy add-on cables as you need them, or in this case, the new 12-pin GPU connector.

          That would be nice, but I don't see it happening. It took the EU courts to get phone manufacturers to start using USB ports on phones to get them away from proprietary connectors. There is no chance something like that is going to be done about computer power supplies that less than 1% of the population have.

            Yeah, I think most reputable companies will provide new cables you can purchase, assuming you have a modular PSU

              I spent close to $1400 on a new build a year ago last April.Since then,the cpu has is already releasing it's 2nd generation advance(I have the 2700xt),the video card releasing IT'S second generation advance(I have the original RTX 2070),memory is going to a new format(i have ddr4, ddr5 is coming out),lucky for me my board can upgrade to pcie4 IF I buy a 3rd generation cpu. I know it seems like a low end build to many of you,but some of us can't afford to toss 1/10th of their yearly income into a new comp every year to keep up with the times. If the companies DON'T realize this,and start either pricing realistically,or releasing on a more stable base(see posted listing @ bottom for punch line.)they're going to lose the people who AREN'T extreme enthusiast and OEM's will just gain more buyers.

              Punch line = RTX 2060,2070,2080 and THEN RTX 2060S,2070S,2080S not to mention the GTX1600 series that has a NEW GTX 1650 being released(HOW many cards can you release with the SAME NAME???) anything to confuse the consumer and make purchasing for the average person MORE frustrating.

              All this is just illustrating why I won't be upgrading anytime soon. It'll wait until I make a complete build [email protected] least a couple of years,more likely 5.

                At least you have a good CPU upgrade path still and the 2070 should last you for a while, or at least hold its value in the used market if you decide to sell it.

                  Yeah it is a massive PITA. I myself while I do have an upgrade path available to me (Ryzen 4000 CPU's), will likely stick with my 3950x for a good few years, it is already PCIe 4, so I already have that sorted. No real sense in going to the 4000 series. As for the GPU, sold my SLI 2080T's. A. for the next GPU's an B. SLI is dead as a dodo. Even with the next upgrade I may very well not go with a top end Nvidia card as I am finding the price tag is simply not worth it, games are not maxing these cards out, hopefully this is a sign of the better optimised drivers and game engines.

                  I will be taking a good hard look at the RDNA2 cards from AMD this year and may go to the red team if the rumours are true with the performance they are getting, plus AMD will price competitively. Might get a better bang for the buck.

                    I don't mind getting a new PSU, cause the one in the second rig is pretty old so I could switch those around.
                    In this case that won't hold me back from buying the 3 series, if the extension cable wouldn't be an option.
                    But first I want to see what it does in benchmarks with all kinds of setups and folding @ home.
                    And if AMD has anything better to offer I might go that way.

                      depends on price

                      I want an upgrade but I don't want to spend $1000 on a GPU either

                        Yeah it is a massive PITA. I myself while I do have an upgrade path available to me (Ryzen 4000 CPU's), will likely stick with my 3950x for a good few years, it is already PCIe 4, so I already have that sorted. No real sense in going to the 4000 series. As for the GPU, sold my SLI 2080T's. A. for the next GPU's an B. SLI is dead as a dodo. Even with the next upgrade I may very well not go with a top end Nvidia card as I am finding the price tag is simply not worth it, games are not maxing these cards out, hopefully this is a sign of the better optimised drivers and game engines.

                        I will be taking a good hard look at the RDNA2 cards from AMD this year and may go to the red team if the rumours are true with the performance they are getting, plus AMD will price competitively. Might get a better bang for the buck.
                        Lucky you lol :P

                        I do not tend to fold on my main rig as I tend to be working or gaming on it, so not much space for Folding, so that fortunately/unfortunately will bot be a factor in my purchase which is kind of good as it does not make me feel guilty going for a GPU that may not be all that fab at folding but fine for everything else haha.
