    1Does the 3080 TI need two power cables?

    As it turns out, some of the new 30-Series GPUs require two of the PCIe 8-pin connectors (otherwise known as “6+2”) connectors, while others require three, and even within the 3080 product line specifically.

    2What power supply does a 3080 TI need?

    750-1650 Watt ATX 3.0 PSU Full modular cabling allows you to optimize airflow and minimize clutter. Ultra quiet design. 10-year warranty. This series of power supplies comes in a variety of configurations, including 750, 850, 1000, 1200, 1350, and 1650 watts.

    3Does 3080 Ti need 3 power cables?

    Ideally, it would be three separate cables, and that would be the best, but a cable from the PSU manufacturer would also work fine. The majority of the PSU that will handle the 3080Ti made in the last five years should have multiple GPU cables. Not the best directions but hope that helps you.

It should work fine, but reserve power will be a little iffy.

    4How many 8 pins for 3080Ti?

    ASUS TUF-RTX3080TI-GAMING RTX 3080 Ti Graphics Card 12GB GDDR6X PCI Express 4.0 2x 8-pin Power Connectors. These items are not available in our stores right now for pick-up. These items will be delivered free in-store pickup. Items usually arrive in the store within 2 to 7 business days.

    5Does 3080 TI need 850w?

    Is 850w enough for 3080 TI? The 3080 TI is a versatile graphics card that will need a lot of horsepower to operate. However, 850w is more than enough to guarantee that the card will work as expected. The 850w will also support overclocking, so here’s what you’ll need if you’re looking to get the most out of your 3080 TI’s.

    6How much power does RTX 3080 Ti consume?

    The Nvidia RTX 2080 has a 225W graphics card, with Nvidia recommending a minimum system power of 650W. With a maximum system power of 750W, the succeeding RTX 3080 (12GB) card saw the graphics card’s power increase to 350W.

    7How much power does a 3080Ti consume?

    Non-gaming power consumption is surprisingly high. For example, the 3080 Ti (16 W) in idle is much closer to the RTX 3090 (18 W), whereas the RTX 3080 was only 10 W.

    8Can you use 6 pin for 8 pin GPU?

    If a 6-pin connector is wired into an 8-pin slot, the GPU will attempt to draw more power than the cable is rated for, resulting in a fire hazard. We suggest any combination of connector types you may need from our list of GPU Standard Power Cables to prevent this.

    9Is a 3080 TI too much?

    If one asks if the RTX 3080 Ti is a good gaming card, the answer would be yes. The card is a rendering powerhouse. It is one of the most expensive GPUs on the market. However, a variety of other variables will determine whether gamers will get it in August 2022.

    Also the 3080FTW/Ti dont sag that much. Results vary, subjective really. I think the 3080 FTW3 cards have a lot of sag. Chonky, but great looking cards.

    12Do I need to use both 8 pin CPU power connector?

    For modern mainstream Intel and mainstream AMD, you should only ever need to plug in 1 of the 8-pins for normal use. While some boards may profit from having both 8-pins wired in for “cleaner power,” there is no concrete evidence to back this up.

    13Do I need both 8 pin GPU power connector?

    6+2-pin and 8-pin Power Connectors Some graphics cards require just a single 8-pin connector. Others, however, need two. Others still get their power through a 6- and an 8-pin connector (300W in total).
