EVGA has just launched a $2499 graphics card - Meet the RTX 3090 Ti KINGPIN
EVGA has just launched their flagship RTX 3090 Ti graphics card, the RTX 3090 Ti KINGPIN Hybrid, a graphics card that features two 16-pin PCIe power connectors and a hybrid liquid cooling solution that includes a 360mm radiator.
With this new graphics card, EVGA is giving their customers a "free" 1600W SuperNOVA P2 power supply, which is more than strong enough to power an overclocked RTX 3090 Ti with high end processor. Strangely, this power supply does not feature PCIe 16-pin PCIe power connectors, which means that power adaptors must be used with this PSU/GPU combo.
Unlike its RTX 3090 (non-Ti) counterpart, the RTX 3090 Ti KINGPIN features ARGB LED fan on its liquid cooling radiator, a more robust 14-layer PCB (the RTX 3090 KINGPIN has a 12 layer PCB), and boasts a 24-phase VRM power design (RTX 3090 KINGPIN was 23-phase).
Does this GPU ship with a PowerLink 52u?
Strangely, EVGA's US product page for their GPU/PSU bundle mentions EVGA's Powerlink 52u power adaptor for their RTX 3090 Ti KINGPIN. This adaptor adapts six PCIe 6+2-pin power connectors to two 16-pin PCIe 5.0 power connectors. The webpage does not mention if these adaptor is bundle with EVGA's RTX 3090 Ti KINGPIN PSU bundle, though it would be a useful addition given the fact that EVGA's SuperNOVA 1600W P2 power supply does not feature PCIe 5.0 16-pin power cables.
Hopefully EVGA will clarify this soon.
