GK104 Board Draws Power From 6+8 Pin Connectors, 3+2 VDD Phase Power Supply

I don't mind. The more power, the better!

The top desktop graphics card based on the NVIDIA GeForce Kepler 104 (GK104) ASIC, which has come to be known as GeForce GTX 670 Ti, is reported to use a 5 NVVDD phase power supply (VRM) design that draws power from 6-pin and 8-pin power connectors. The card will hence have 300W of power at its disposal. NVVDD phase 1 and 3 will be wired to the 6-pin connector; phase 2, 4, and 5 to the 8-pin connector. NVVDD phases 2, 4, and 5 feed power to the GPU, while phases 1 and 3 power the GDDR5 memory and other components on the board.

nice info, will be something when the new kepler comes retail

this means reference design is weak. if it can draw max current from the pcie cables.. therefore pushing it(ln2) requires an upgraded vrm

did you expect any less from a nvidia GPU?lol, you want power efficiency go buy tegra. lol Their leaky transistors are what makes them so sexy.
