Asus showcases RTX 4070 GPU with Zero Power connectors

As per Wccftech reports, Asus is working on a design concept for the upcoming GeForce RTX 40 (Ada Lovelace) graphics card series that will not require any external power connector for power supply. Instead, the company has designed a patented slot that provides up to 600W of power.

The 16-pin power connector (12VHPWR) made headlines last year when the AC adapter melted on some GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards. The pins surfaced again a week ago. Nvidia attributed the issue to user error since the 16-pin power connector was not placed correctly in certain scenarios. Unfortunately, Asus' design does not completely eliminate the user factor from the equation. Nevertheless, it helps to minimize the possibility of it happening as the 16-pin power connector is no longer on the graphics card but on the motherboard, where there is more freedom to maneuver the power cable.
