NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 can receive PCIe 5.0 support thanks to its 12-pin connector

The 12-pin connector present on NVIDIA RTX 30 line video cards may be able to support PCIe 5.0. That's because the similarities between the connection of the future adopted standard and the GPUs of this series are many.

Both connector models are called Molex Micro-Fit 3.0, have 12 pins , and despite the amount, it's physically smaller than the 8-pin PCIe cable we're used to. This type was introduced by NVIDIA in 2020 .

The connector is rated for up to 9A at 12V, per line, which means a maximum theoretical power of 648W. Rumors suggest the PCIe Gen5 (12VHPWRH+) connection should be up to 9.2A, which would give a total theoretical power of 662W .
