SAN FRANCISCO: Graphics chip giant Nvidia has said that it is still investigating the reports of its RTX 4090 graphics card issues, but its findings 'suggest' that it was caused because of an insecure connector.

The company also claimed that it has received around 50 reports of the problem, reports The Verge.

Initial reports from users blamed the adapter, while some claimed that the melting cable also damaged their graphics processing unit (GPU).

The graphics chip giant also posted a picture of what the connector looks like when it's not fully plugged in.
