The ironic part is Tom's likely knows the answers since they have the cards on hand and have probably even tested them, but are under an NDA till the 1st.
Extremely unlikely they have cards. The announcement is next week, but we're unlikely to see reviews until cards go officially on sale which could be a couple weeks later or more. Nvidia may send sites some architecture info ahead of the announcement so sites can have something to post, but that won't include card specs which they'll probably learn when the rest of us do.

We could tell you, but then we'd have to kill you.

To minimize leaks, and do last minute fixes, tech companies have been waiting to the last second to release hardware to sites.

A lot of these poor video card reviewers are often up all night as they only get 1 or 2 days lead time to test.

I know it's not the same as TBP (Total board power) It's actually less than TBP, so it's going to be one hot sucker.
let's hope that's just some online BS
because
GTX 780 requires 600W with one 6pin and one 8pin
GTX 980 requires 500W psu with 2x 6pin
GTX 1080 requires 500W with only one 8 pin connector

just doesn't make sense that a new xx80 on 7nm will require more power than ancient gtx 780

I think your numbers are a little off.


PCIe bus is 75Watts
A six pin is 75 Watts
An eight pin is 150 Watts

So a six + eight pin PCIe card is
75 (bus) + 75 (6 pin) + 150 (eight pin) or 300 watts tbp. That's a hefty card already.
