You might need a new 1200 watt PSU to power them beasts. […]Shagittarius wrote on 2022-08-12, 19:32:
If I can manage I'll grab a 4090 or 4090ti as soon as they drop.

That aside, I have a 3080ti that I find hard to use its full power, even recent games are hard pressed to use it fully unless I abuse RT without DLSS, but for pure raster stuff .. nothing comes close to being able to saturate the processing power of modern GPUs.
Next gen Ill be going AMD with their MCM GPU, nVidia is pushing 900watt Halo GPUs as their answer to more GPU power, AMD is going with MCM instead leveraging their chiplet and fabric tech for GPUs. I thought the 3000 series was bad for power draw but the 4000 series is going to be worse and the last thing my PC needs is a 900watt GPU in it.
Why do I say 900watts . .because I dont believe in buying low/midrange GPUs, If im going to drop a bundle of cash on a GPU I may as well do it right and get something as close to the top as I can and then not have to worry about it again for 5+ years. Its not future proofing but rather knowing that no matter what game hits the scene in that 5 years my GPU will have more than enough power to play it decently.
I somehow doubt this leaked informations. Cause Imagine 450Watt or more...its a heater not a graphics card. How should it keep low temperatures by air? Do we Speak about a FX5XXX Fan Revival just in bigger? You know its weird so maybe all cards have water cooling otherwise its a huge fan system with plenty of new ideas needed to cool it down without heating the whole PC up to 100 c and more.
