Gainward Reportedly Replaces RTX 4090’s 12VHPWR Adapters

Posted on

Gainward is reportedly delaying shipments of its GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards in Australia, in a bid to replace Nvidia’s 12VHPWR adapters, which have been seen to meltoverheat, or catch fire. Gainward is the only graphics card maker that does this, as far as we know, although we wouldn’t be surprised if others follow suit.

“As you may have seen, issues have been reported by customers receiving the first batches of [GeForce RTX] 4090 cards, where these adapters have been exhibiting symptoms of overheating/melting under certain circumstances,” Australian retailer TechFast wrote to a client who re-published the message on Reddit (via VideoCardz). “While investigations are still continuing and Nvidia has not yet released a public statement, Gainward has told us that the cables shipped with their cards will be being replaced. As a result, they are holding shipping of all cards until this has taken place.”
