Some of the first images of an actual NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 Ti graphics card have been shared online. Video card-centric tech site VideoCardz has today shared purported images of what appears to be a Gigabyte Aero GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. In addition to images of the white triple fan cooling shroud from the front and... Read more...
One of the noteworthy takeaways from AMD's announcement of the Navi 31-based Radeon RX 7900 XTX was its lower power spec (355W) relative to NVIDIA's power-thirsty GeForce RTX 4090. Of course, it's not expected to be as fast as NVIDIA's card either, and in any case, we didn't see the RTX 4090 hit its rated power under... Read more...
ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) has launched its all-new Strix Gold Aura Edition series PSUs. These fully modular PC power supplies are the most premium that ASUS offers, sporting specs such as; a native 16-pin PCI Express power connector, ATX 3.0 compatibility, improved cooling, weighty heatsinks, 0dB modes, and...

In case you haven't heard, NVIDIA's recent high-end GPUs are using a new connector, known as "12VHPWR". That's "twelve-volt high power" in ATX-spec-speak, and it's a small plug with twelve pins that can supply up to 600 watts of power for thirsty graphics cards. The GeForce RTX 4090 includes an adapter that converts... Read more...
Back when we were hearing rumors about the GeForce RTX 4090's monstrous power draw, there were fears that the humongous current demands of the massive graphics processor could trip breakers or even start fires. These fears were amplified when Zotac warned of the concerning fragility of the 12VHPWR connector. Now... Read more...
There wasn't a lot of chatter about this when the reviews went up, but Intel's Arc graphics cards suffer from relatively high power draw for their performance. That's true not only under load, but also when idle. While even the monstrous GeForce RTX 4090 will drop down to less than 25 watts at idle, the Arc A770 can... Read more...
Zotac shared the full tech specs of its recently launched GeForce RTX 4090 AMP Extreme AIRO graphics card in the wake of NVIDIA’s barnstorming GeForce Beyond announcements. Not all of NVIDIA’s Ada Lovelace GPU partners have been so revealing, but an eyebrow raising nugget of information about the bundled power cable... Read more...
Have you heard the rumors about how hot and power-thirsty next-generation GPUs are going to be? Of course you have, because we've been covering all of those rumors and leaks for months. This story isn't about that. Instead, we're going to talk about the latest rumor, which claims that the reference design for NVIDIA's... Read more...
Way back at the beginning of last month, Intel finalized the 3.0 version of the ATX12V specification. This revision, as you'd expect from a full-number version, brings significant changes to standard PC power supplies going forward, and the most critical sections have to do with the "12VHPWR" connector that we've...

Yesterday, Lockheed Martin made major headlines across the Internet with claims that it was developing a new compact fusion reactor that could be deployed within the next decade. This is a bold claim -- researchers have been able to create fusion in a lab for decades, but the problem isn't creating fusion -- it's... Read more...
Battery life has long been the bane of the mobile market, hamstringing laptops, tablets, and smartphones even as processors, graphics, and storage have increased in both performance and efficiency. Apple is reportedly tackling this problem head-on as it looks to other forms of power for its impending smartwatch... Read more...

Despite having risen to popularity only a few years ago, it's become increasingly clear that electric vehicles are the future. Versus gas-powered vehicles, electric ones are safer on the environment (this is oft-debated, however), are generally cleaner, and are also less-expensive to refuel. Who wouldn't... Read more...
As expected, IDF13’s day two keynote was mostly about Bay Trail and Intel’s continued push into thinner, lighter, and smaller, mobile devices. The keynote was handled by a trio of execs, Douglas Fisher, Vice President and General Manager of Intel’s Software and Services Group. Herman Eul... Read more...
I think it's safe to say that a generally agreed-upon thing in tech is that cords suck. You might have way too many of them to deal with, or you might be tired of plugging one in the wrong way all the time (I'm looking at you, USB). It's for these reasons that wireless power is an interesting topic, and while there... Read more...
Ten years after a major blackout affected at least 50 million people in the northeastern US and some parts of Canada, physicists in Israel and the United States are calling attention to the fact that it could happen again, and that its affects next time could be even worse. The studies have revolved around spatial... Read more...
Apple is certainly no stranger to dealing with counterfeit goods. In fact, entire counterfeit Apple stores have emerged in certain parts of Asia. It's easy to be a cynic and suggest that Apple simply overcharges for certain first-party accessories and cables, but then there's a story like this to bring it all into... Read more...
While it's obvious that innovation is on the fast-track when looking at consumer electronics as a whole, one has to wonder how long it'll take for the USB port to do more than it does. Perhaps that time has come. Texas Instruments has issued a new single-chip DockPort solution that enables DisplayPort, USB and power... Read more...
If you've done any shopping for a tablet lately, you’ve probably realized that they are not one-size-fits-all devices. While one person may use his tablet for business meetings and presentations, another may use it for watching movies and playing games. Some people prefer a smaller, 7-inch model while others want a larger 10-inch screen.... Read more...

Google is officially a technology empire, as it expands its domain into an ever-increasing number of markets. The latest area that Google is toying with is renewable energy, as the company has acquired Makani Power, a company that Google has apparently been investing in since 2007. To be more specific, the wing of Google that bought Makani... Read more...
In the midst of Google's Android growth, Chrome explosion, Chromebook entries and Fiber roll-outs, it's actually easy to forget that Google does other things as well. There's search, Glass, and energy. Yes, energy. Google has been dabbling in energy for some time now, which makes sense given the tremendous amount of... Read more...
