Maxsun has recently launched the RTX 4070 SUPER iCraft Graphics Card, introducing a departure from the conventional 12VHPWR interface used by most manufacturers. Instead, Maxsun opted for a more traditional dual 8-pin power interface, signaling a unique approach to power supply compatibility.
Priced at 4,999 yuan ($695) on the JD platform, the Maxsun RTX 4070 SUPER iCraft OC12G is making waves in the market. Boasting a customized RGB backplane and supporting fan start and stop functionality! this graphics card is positioned as a premium offering. The power consumption is marked at 245W, adding to its appeal for enthusiasts and gamers seeking high-performance options.
Compared to its predecessor, the RTX 4070, NVIDIA has upped the Total Graphics Power (TGP) of the RTX 4070 SUPER from 200W to 220W. Alongside this increase in power, the graphics card also demands a higher power input. Despite this industry trend, Maxsun’s decision to stick with dual 8-pin interfaces in the iCraft model showcases a commitment to improving power supply compatibility.
It’s noteworthy that Maxsun has chosen to maintain dual 8-pin interfaces only in the iCraft variant! while its other two RTX 4070 SUPER graphics cards – the Turbo Edition and Ultimate Edition – conform to the industry norm by using the 12VHPWR interface. This divergence in power interface choices for the Ultimate Edition sets it apart as a distinctive offering in Maxsun’s lineup.
Industry experts are speculating on the reasoning behind Maxsun’s unconventional power interface choice for the iCraft model. Some suggest that it could be a strategic move to cater to users with power supply units! that may not support the newer industry standard. Others see it as a unique selling point, differentiating the iCraft variant in a crowded market.
The Maxsun RTX 4070 SUPER iCraft OC12G is now available for purchase on the JD platform! offering a compelling option for consumers seeking a powerful graphics card with a distinctive power interface. As the industry continues to evolve, Maxsun’s decision may pave the way for more diversity in power interface options among graphics card manufacturers.
