The ATX 3.0 era of power supplies is underway, less than a year after the specifications were first announced. Intel-maintained updates to the specification introduced some notable changes to the design of PC power supplies. Most notable is the introduction of 600 Watt capable 12VHPWR connectors and associated cables. Overall, ATX 3.0 was designed to lay the foundation for future video cards (and other high-power accelerators), with a single unit that can handle the large and rapid changes in power consumption that video cards can experience. Provides a one-cable power connection.
The biggest change since the addition of the 12V 6-pin “PCIe” power connector in the late 2000s, the ATX 3.0 era has brought some new opportunities for both computing products and computing problems. rice field. Long story short, the use of adapters has gone awry for his NVIDIA at the forefront, with a few but serious incidents of 12VHPWR adapters melting. On the other hand, on the power supply side of the issue, this was an unwelcome boon. Not only is his native ATX 3.0 power supply the preferred method from a design standpoint, but the adapter issue helped highlight this advantage. As such, power supply vendors who were among the first to bring ATX 3.0 designs to market will never run out of demand for the latest and greatest products. It also presents new opportunities to innovate and differentiate from competitors.
In today’s review we take a look at the first ATX 3.0 power supplies. In fact, it is the world’s first MSI MEG Ai1300P PCIE5. The Ai1300P is a powerful 1300W PSU designed to fully comply with the ATX 3.0 specification, showing what the future holds for high-end PC PSUs. To power video cards and other PCIe devices that consume more power than ever before.
