Explained: The Nvidia RTX 4090 cable melting crisis

‘Cablegate’ is in full flow right now. Nvidia is in hot water, with increasing cases of new GPUs encountering thermal issues and becoming damaged. The situation is still developing, so this is our full summary of all the details and a timeline of events.

Nvidia’s latest flagship GPU, the RTX 4090, allegedly fell victim to a fatal flaw found in its 16-pin power adapter. So far, 23 confirmed cases (and another 6 unconfirmed) have been recorded in one Reddit mega thread (opens in new tab), with more reports landing regularly. Nvidia has responded to complainants (and some inquiring YouTubers) to say they are looking into the issue.
