I have already posted an article about replacing the 12VHPWR connector with a new one called 12V-2×6. Recently we discovered that before this new connector is final, NVIDIA and some other brands, including MSI and ASUS, already use it in their products!
For me, this is insane! To use a non-finalized, the corresponding specification is not final yet, connector in widely available products. This way, you “promote” the product owners using the new connector to beta testers. You should only use well-tested components for which the specification is final! It is irresponsible, to say the least, to use connectors on both GPUs and CPUs before the corresponding specification is out!
I guess most brands wanted something to replace 12VHPWR as fast as possible, but rushing things started all problems in the first place.

You help me a lot by using my affiliate links, which don’t increase the product’s price. I get a commission from Amazon every time you do it, which can make a difference for me, especially now that I am on my own, working exclusively for my media and not for someone else.
