ASUS Republic of Gamers (ASUS ROG) announced the launch of its most advanced power supply,…
lian li announced its most advanced power supply to date, the SP850which has the pleasure of being the first on the market to arrive in a format sfx along with new industry standards. This implies supporting the standard ATX 3.0 next to PCIe Gen5which translates to offering the new connector ATX12HPWR of 12+4 pins to power the new generation graphics cards through a single cable capable of supplying up to 600W power.
With a fully designed modularas its name suggests, offers 850W of power together with an energy certificate 80 Plus Gold (energy efficiency of up to 93.53%), expecting the company to expand the family later. This one also has a single +12v line for greater stability when powering a high-performance GPU, and all this seasoned with all the usual energy and temperature protections on the market (OVP, OPP, SCP, UVP, OCP and OTP).
The Lian Li SP850 thinks about the new generation Mini-PCs
Continuing with the information offered, the power supply is cooled by a 92mm PWM fan that has the technology ZeroRPM. This means that the fan will only start to rotate, and generate noise, when a load of 340W of power (40% of the load) or there is some exception, such as a high temperature of operation.
Offering a modular design, all cabling is provided separately. This is divided into one ATX12HPWR 16-pin for the GPU, 2x EPS 8 + 8 pin to power the motherboard, 3x PCIe 6+2 pin for current generation GPUs, and 8x SATA connectors to power old storage units or other accessories.
We remind you that ATX 3.0 is the new Intel specification standard for new generation power supplies. The main purpose of ATX 3.0 is to help provide more reliability and better efficiency energy and provide the GPUs up to 600 watts of power. Hence the new 16-pin connector to achieve this purpose.
The ATX 3.0 has been created in response to the increased performance of graphics cards and the need increasing energy. We have a clear example with the GeForce RTX 4090, which is expected to consume up to 800W of power in its Custom variants, so even a PCIe 5.0 connector will fall short.
Availability and price
To finish, the power supply makes use of 100% Japanese capacitorsoffers a sound of 0 dBA up to 340W of consumption, which is where it begins to reach the 30dBA to reach a maximum of 50 dBA at maximum load.
Its chassis, made in polished aluminumhas dimensions of 125 x 100 x 63.5 mm in height, proof of its quality are the 5 year warrantyand its launch price will be around 150 and 170 eurosbeing available both in black and white to adapt to the desEsports Extrasof the rest of the user’s system components in their PC.
