AMD Radeon RX 7000 Will Not Use The 12+4-Pin "12VHPWR" Connectors

AMD has confirmed that the Radeon RX 7000 series will not be using PCIe Gen5 “12VHPWR ” connectors, which is the new 12+4-pin connector that Nvidia’s RTX 40 series of graphics cards use.

AMD Radeon RX 7000 will not use the 12+4-pin “12VHPWR” connectors

The 12VHPWR PCIe Gen5 connector is designed to deliver 600W of power with a single cable , simplifying installation of new graphics cards. This connector was added with the Nvidia RTX 40 series to install it on any PC with an ATX 3.0 power supply, simplifying that entire installation stage.

The information, which was born from a leak, was confirmed by Scott Herkelman , the general manager of AMD Radeon.

AMD does not see the need to add this connector, at least with the RX 7000 series , but nothing ensures that they will not include it with the RX 8000 series .

The information originally came from Angstronomics :

“The reference card appears to have an updated 3-fan design that is slightly taller than the previous generation, with a distinctive red 3-stripe accent on a section of the heatsink fins near the dual 8-pin connectors.” ‘

This information adds to what we already knew about support for DisplayPort 2.1 connections , which was recently announced, which would be the first series of graphics cards to have this connector.

In this way, AMD takes a different path than Nvidia with this connector, which also forces it to sell its graphics cards with adapters for those computers that do not have ATX 3.0 power supplies.

The RX 7000 series of graphics cards would be officially presented in November at a special event.
