And as is the case with rumors and snippets of information, various statements were spread, some of which even contradicted each other. On the one hand, there was the opinion that NVIDIA will already use this new 12-pin connector on the new high-end amp cards, whereby the PG132 reference board should continue to be equipped with two 8-pin sockets and only this new socket on the PG133-PCB of the Founders Edition.
In addition, there was talk of a 12-pin adapter included in the Founders Edition, which should enable the connection of two 8-pin EPS cables. This in turn was the reason for the excitement among the power supply manufacturers, because the EPS actually serves to supply the CPU, is currently available in maximum two and is mostly already being used in full. Thus, the reported connection would actually make no sense if one were not to introduce new power supply standards right away.
not 8.5 amps like the earlier post said but 9.5A
