The owner of the RTX 4090 graphics card has filed a class action lawsuit against NVIDIA due to the problem of melting connectors in its new flagship device.
Last week, Lucas Genova filed a lawsuit over a problematic 12VHPWR 16-pin connector. In the lawsuit, Jenov’s legal team notes that he bought a GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card and found that the connection cable began to melt shortly after installing it in the computer.
“The reason for the melting appears to be a design flaw related to the high power flowing through each of the 16 pins,” the lawsuit notes. “If there is even a temporary break in the electrical connection for any of the contacts, too much current will flow through the remaining contacts, resulting in meltdown.”
The lawsuit requires NVIDIA to pay damages to the plaintiff and all other RTX 4090 owners affected by the melted 16-pin connector.
NVIDIA has not yet commented on the lawsuit.
