NVIDIA users who decide to step up to a GeForce RTX 3090 Ti may be tempted to buy a new and more powerful PSU to go along with it.

This is according to a short but eye-catching tweet from VideoCardz, which suggests that manufacturers will be recommending 1,000-watt power supplies to help fuel their custom, overclocked GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics cards. This is a 250-watt increase over what NVIDIA recommends for its GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition (750 watts).

“RTX 3090 Ti OC model recommended PSU: 1000W,” VideoCardz tweeted.

It’s unclear what specific model VideoCardz is referring to, but custom, overclocked versions of the GeForce RTX 3090 that can be found on today’s market are accompanied by a recommended PSU specification of 850 watts.

Higher-quality 1,000-watt power supplies (e.g., Seasonic’s Prime series) typically cost around $200 to $300.
