@momomo_us has shared what appears to be official documentation for HPCE, a new power connector that is capable of delivering more than 600 watts of power to graphics cards without cables. The schematics provided suggest that the connector is very similar to PCIe, with one diagram showing how the connector sits relative to the primary PCIe x16 slot when used on a motherboard. One page notes that this connector is already widely used in server products, meaning that this connector technically isn’t new, but consumers should be able to find it in upcoming products that include ASUS’ GeForce RTX 4070 BTF GPU.
