During the 'Break All Limits' Livestream, ASUS showcased four new power supplies. The ROG THOR Titanium 1600W is the new flagship and is 80 PLUS Titanium certified while the ROG THOR II power supplies consist of three variants and are 80 PLUS Platinum certified. The new ASUS PSUs are future-proof and support PCIe 5.0.

 ASUS has announced a new flagship, the ROG THOR Titanium 1600W, as well as three ROG THOR II Platinum power supplies at the ‘Break All Limits’ Livestream. Wccftech reports that the ROG THOR Titanium dethrones the ROG THOR Platinum 1200W as the highest wattage power supply that ASUS has ever conceived. The ROG THOR II PSUs come in 850W, 1000W and 1200W variants.

The THOR Titanium has attained 80 PLUS Titanium certification, which is given to power supplies with more than 90% power efficiency. The THOR Titanium exceeds 93% power efficiency at 100% load by utilising Gallium Nitride and solid-state components. Moreover, the THOR Platinum II PSUs are 80 PLUS Platinum certified and use premium components such as Japanese capacitors.

These new ASUS power supplies perform without enabling the cooling fans at up to 50% load and thus, produce less noise at higher wattages. This is made possible via an upgraded heat sink design that cover a larger surface area. ASUS claims that the PSUs deliver more power stability to computer components.

A standout highlight of the ASUS power supplies is their compatibility with the PCIe 5.0 standard. The PSUs are future-proof and come bundled with PCIe 5.0 connectors, which are high-capacity auxiliary connectors that contain 12 connectors in one cable. According to Wccftech, future GPUs and SSDs that support PCIe 5.0 may have very high power requirements and hence, the ASUS PSUs will be prepared for these next-gen parts.

The new ASUS power supplies showcase RGB LEDs on black and silver design exteriors as well as OLEDs that show the total wattage used. The ASUS PSUs come with ten-year warranties and will be launched in Q4 2021.
