OK I have just purchased a PowerColor AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT graphics card from Ebyer.com I have it sat and secured in my Extra PCIE slot but the graphic card has a power area for an Extra PCIE power connector which my current APU does not have.
Any Ideas to help me I have sent a request for support from AMD-IT.com but they are currently closed until monday.
The PCIe Power connector to the GPU card comes directly from your PSU. See if your PSU has a PCIe Power cable (6 or 8 Pin cables). If it doesn't then you would need to purchase an adapter PSU cable to connect to your GPU card.
Here are some examples of PCIe PSU Power cable adapters for GPU card:
Seems like your GPU card requires a 8 Pin PCIe PSU Power connector and a minimum PSU of 450 Watts.
Your Powercolor GPU Specs: AXRX 5500 XT 8GBD6-DHR/OC - PowerColor
But I imagine it should work on PCIe 3.0 but not sure if it is backwards compatible. Need to ask Powercolor Support.
I'm having the same problem at the moment. 500w PSU with a 6 pin PCIe cable, I just ordered an adapter. Could you confirm if it resolved your issue ? If no, how did you do it ?
Thanks in advance,
