In this specific design, a standalone 8-pin power connector is indeed present. The I/O panel displays an array of display connectors, including three DisplayPort 1.4 and one HDMI 2.1 connector, facilitating 8K 60 Hz HDR transmission using a single HDMI cable.
The newly-released models deliver exceptional cooling and heightened stability, thanks to the Ultra-Dense Protection Plate and a Metal Backplate featuring cut-out sections. The GeForce RTX 40 Panther comes with a proper thermal solution that capitalizes on the Cyclone Fans.
With a weight of close to 1500 grams, this card can be considered moderately lightweight.
While the new DP 2.1 standard has not yet been integrated, the RTX 4000 series graphics cards are equipped with HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4 ports, enabling 8K 60 Hz HDR through a solitary HDMI cable. The card's I/O panel incorporates an air vent, connectors, and an aluminum fin stack encased within an alloy frame.
The card has a ventilated backplate and a compact form factor, measuring roughly 33 cm long. The cooling system is enhanced by a vapour chamber, ten robust heat pipes that span the board, comprehensive heatsinks, thermal pads for all crucial components, and dedicated heat pipes and heatsinks for memory modules. Consequently, temperature management is unlikely to pose any problems. And yeah, no RGB, and we think it still looks good in that all dark design.
