Image Credit – MSI   MSI has announced two ATX 3.0 power supplies in the form of the 1000 watt MEG Ai1000P and the 1300 watt MEG Ai1300P.

Interestingly, MSI seems to be preparing for a next-generation GPU that can sustain 600 watts power draw, and burst to 1,800 watts. …

They’re really good at two things. The first is getting dirty and requiring lots of cleaning. The second is leaking. They leak from seams. They leak from glue. They leak just through evaporation.

Can’t imagine why… Regardless, they are the first GPU maker to start dumping stock with the 3090Ti and probably not the last. Rumors persist that Nvidia over produced these expensive GPUs, and are now sitting on massive stock piles of what will be quickly obsolete silicon. Obsolete?
