AMD has confirmed that its high-end RDNA 3 graphics cards won’t use the same power adapters employed with the Nvidia RTX 4090, which hit the headlines recently with some reports of issues around melting (yes – really bad news).

For those who missed it, these are 12VHPWR power adapters used by people to connect the 16-pin RTX 4090 cable (for ATX 3.0, the newer PSUs) to an ATX 2.0 power supply (which the vast majority of owners of PC still has).
