PCIe 5.0 power cable life is limited and needs to be taken care of, memory price reduction is expected to reach 13~18%

The PCIe 5.0 power supply cable is very delicate: According to many sources, the PCIe 5.0 power supply cable used in the just-launched NVIDIA RTX40 series graphics cards is very delicate, and its limited life requires special care from players. In order to take care of players who use the original power supply, the RTX40 graphics card generally comes with a 4 x 8 PIN to 12VHPWR adapter cable, and this cable only has a lifespan of 30 plugging cycles! TechPowerup said this security limit was set by NVIDIA, and since 12VHPWR has a 600W power supply capability and allows short-term 1200W peaks, NVIDIA may have made this limit after evaluating the security impact. The previously exposed PCI-SIG internal investigation also showed that PCIe 5.0 (12VHPWR) cables are very easy to bend, and after bending or multiple connections (about 40 times), the possibility of overheating and melting of the cable is high. Judging from the dates in the PPT, manufacturers should have known about the risks in the last month. Players need to be careful and only do careful plugging and unplugging when absolutely necessary. The price drop of memory in Q4 is expected to reach 13-18%: According to a research report by TrendForce, due to factors such as inflation, memory consumption and shipments continue to decline, resulting in further pressure on suppliers' inventory. PC DRAM memory prices are expected to plummet by 13-18% in the fourth quarter of this year. This is a good thing for consumers, especially friends who are ready to install. This year, AMD Ryzen 7000 only supports DDR5 memory, and the downward trend of memory prices will help reduce your installed cost.
