ASUS confirms 12-pin PCIe Gen 5.0 connector for next-gen GPUs, announces new ROG Thor power supplies


Recommended Posts


The rumors started with our leak on GeForce RTX 3090 Ti have finally found a confirmation. It was alleged that NVIDIA’s next-gen flagship graphics card will be the first to offer PCIe Gen5 power connector, a more powerful and compact plug compared to existing 8-pin and 6-pin connectors. During a special event covering Intel Z690 motherboards, ASUS also unveiled a new line of ROG Thor power supplies, namely 1200W Platinum II, 1600W Titanium, and 1000W Platinum II. These are high-wattage power supplies for a reason, they are meant to be paired with high-end CPUs and GPUs.


The company confirmed that new Thor PSUs are compatible with the latest and next-generation GPUs and they were designed with ASUS’ own graphics team. What all this means is that ASUS will be adding PCIe Express Gen 5.0 connector to their future graphics cards.
