As part of a new video that dives into the physical design and testing that goes into creating a graphics card -- specifically an NVIDIA Founders Edition -- we also get our first official glimpse at the upcoming Ampere-based NVIDIA GeForce RTX-30 series set to make its debut on September 2.
Alongside the fascinating history and surprisingly easy to follow talk about thermals and energy it's only the briefest of flashes (showcasing the latest revolutionary thermal design).
The accompanying breakdown offers some insight into the design. Which does confirm, at least on the Founders Edition side, a new 12-pin connector for the Founders Editions that will, according to NVIDIA, ship with adapters.
Thermal: A new, airflow-optimized cooling solution, redesigned to overcome existing constraints and move more air through the system for maximum cooling efficiency
Mechanical: A stronger mechanical structure, including a new low profile leaf spring that leaves room for a back cover
Electrical: A compact electrical design, with a new 12-pin power connector that allows more space for components and cooling, and is compatible with existing power supplies via an included adapter
Product Design: A no-compromise, cohesive design that embraces the revolutionary thermal solution while beautifully harmonizing each element of the graphics card
The NVIDIA GeForce Special Event is set to broadcast on Wednesday, September 2 at 2AM AEST.
