Corsair has shared an image of its upcoming 12-pin PCIe power connector cable, which is designed for the Founders Editions of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards. Green team has made it clear that these first-party models will ship with an adapter that converts traditional cabling, but according to Corsair, this is a “clunky” and “ugly” solution. That’s why it’s prepping its own design – a single cable that provides a direct connection.
“While a small adapter is included with each GPU for your existing power supply cables, that adapter converts two dedicated PCIe power cables to the new 12-pin connector per NVIDIA’s recommended configuration,” Corsair wrote. “But adapters can be clunky, ugly, and increase resistance, so we’ve taken the extra step and made a much more elegant cable for all our modular PSUs. Our thoroughly tested solution is designed for those that have an eye for cable management and don’t want adapters cluttering up their clean builds. It connects two PCIe / CPU PSU ports directly to the new 12-pin connector.”
“Fully compatible with all Type 3 and Type 4 CORSAIR modular power supplies, our new cable provides a clean direct connection without adding the resistance of a messy-looking adapter,” the company added.
Corsair didn’t say when the cable will be available (or how much it’ll cost), but those of you who rock Corsair modular PSUs can click here to be notified when it’s ready.
