Unsurprisingly between the two, the latest reports indicate that power supplies more than +1000W of power will soon be our daily bread, especially Later this yearwhen the new AMD Radeon RX 7000 series and Nvidia GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards are expected to arrive, which are expected increase the power consumption cap. If we combine this with processors that will also consume more power, it is clear that the requirements for a more powerful power supply are mandatory.
According to the latest rumours, the GeForce RTX 4090 would have a TDP of at least 600W due to its monolithic chip which is said to offer a configuration of up to 18432 CUDA cores, almost double the cores seen in a GeForce RTX 3090 Ti (10752) which Nvidia recommends powering with an 850W PSU. the Radeon RX7900XT It is only known that it would use a silicon with a multi-chip design, the Navi 31, which could offer 15360 stream processors with 512 MB of Infinity Cache memory. There are no reliable rumors about its consumption, although it is assumed that it could be more efficient than the competitive option.
To this must be added that the AMD Ryzen 9 7950X would again offer a configuration of 16 cores and 32 processing threads, but we would see how the maximum TDP drops from 105 to 170Wwhile a Intel Core i9-13900K could have an actual consumption at full capacity close to the 300W (compared to 260W Core i9-12900KS). With a simple sum between these components, not counting the rest of the system, it is obvious that a quality power supply, with 1000W of power, will be an essential requirement for creating a future high-end Gaming PC.
