EVGA has released an adapter for graphics cards called the PowerLink, which is supposed to provide more stable power than connecting a PSU directly to the GPU. The adapter filters and suppresses ripple and noise using two solid state capacitors.
According to EVGA’s testing, the PowerLink can reduce voltage variation as much as 28%: “The 12V line going into graphics card without a PowerLink under load rates a Peak-to-Peak voltage of 1,008mV, while the 12V line going into the graphics card with a PowerLink is only 728mV.”
The EVGA PowerLink has another function: to make your PC look even more awesome. This adapter allows you to reroute the power inputs for your graphics card, giving you improved case airflow, a lower profile height, and best of all, cleaner wiring setup. It even supports a unique configuration system allowing you to mix and match power input types to match your graphics card.
