ATX 3.0 = new psu?

RathOX
 Share

was wondering if the new ATX 3.0 standard we would need a new PSU for it or can current PSUS use the new standard. i will be grabbing 13th gen intel and the top end 4XXX Series GPU

i have the CM V1200 atm (2015) and was wondering due to the new standards if one would need to grab a new psu.

Welcome to the forums!

 

Even if the current standard is deprecated, a PSU you buy today will be useful for easily long enough that you shouldn't worry

even if im grabbing 13th series / top end 4xxx gpu? will intel not add the 12vo to the boards for power instead of the 24 pin? just wondering cuz i can get a deal on a AX1600i atm. i know corsair are doing the 12vhpwr work around connector for gpus

To quote Linus: futureproofing is for idiots
It's highly likely that there will be mobos which accept current standards for a long time, and if you get a fully modular PSU, it should have a cable conversion kit released that will allow you to swap standards.

A couple things:

 

PCIe 5.0 is not ATX 3.0.  PCIe 5.0 is a subset of ATX 3.0.  

 

Secondly, it's not up to Intel to force board partners to change to ATX12VO.  That's up to the board partners.

 

Just like how Nvidia went with the 12-pin connector for FE Ampere cards, but AIB partners continued to use the 8-pin PCIe.

so i should be fine with just grabbing a new PSU & not having to worry whats round the corner yet.

I guess you'll need like a 1KW-rated ATX12V v2.5 PSU for next flagship single GPU, but if it's ATX12V v3.0 standard you'll only need ~800W rated power, since it can handle a much larger peak load than the ATX12V v2.5 legacy platform.
