ASUS ROG Thor 1600 W Titanium - potężny zasilacz gotowy na flagowe karty graficzne nowej generacji. Czegoś jednak mu brak...

Over time, the best PC components have seemed to be smaller and more power efficient, but the recent launch of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3090 Ti showed us that the industry is heading in a very different direction. Furthermore, it appears that leaks of the next generation of GeForce and Radeon graphics chips confirm that many enthusiasts will have to buy a very powerful PSU. Fortunately, some manufacturers already seem to anticipate the situation. ASUS just unveiled the powerful ROG Thor 1600 W Titanium power supply, which should be enough even for those who aren’t intent on doing half-measures. What do we know about him?

ASUS ROG Thor 1600 W Titanium offers the best in theory. It is a pity that there was no native support for the PCIe 5.0 interface …

ASUS ROG Thor – Series of gaming powerhouses with OLED display

The PSU is 80 Plus Platinum certified, which means it offers 90% efficiency at 100% load. The overall design of the device is almost identical to last year’s ROG Thor II. So we’re dealing with a sleek black and silver modular design with an OLED screen placed on the side. For equipment, the power supply provides ten 8-pin PCIe power sockets, two 8-pin EPS, 24-pin ATX and several SATA power connectors. Unfortunately, there was no support for the PCIe 5.0 standard capable of “bypassing” 600W. Although the manufacturer adds a suitable adapter to the lineup, the lack of native support for the interface designed for the next generation of GPUs is quite an obvious flaw.

The rest of the power supply specifications are complemented by, among other things, high-quality GaN FET transistors, as well as a static 135mm fan up to 800W load, which, along with a number of heat sinks, contributed to the acoustic rating of the Cybenetics Lambda A+ power supply +. The ROG Thor 1600 W Titanium is covered by a 10-year manufacturer’s warranty. We don’t know its price, but it will definitely cost more than 1,500 PLN (you can get a 1,200-watt variant for that). Given the lack of native support for PCIe 5.0, it’s hard to treat this power supply as a major investment for the future, even despite the top-notch components and very high efficiency.
