FSP Group, a leading power supply manufacturer, has launched what it is calling the world’s first SFX 12VO power supply: the FSP750-27SCB. Offering a power output of 750 watts, the FSP750 is designed for small form factor systems that seek to benefit from Intel’s new power standard, which allows for reduced standby power consumption. This is partially achieved with the help of a single-rail power supply design.
From FSP’s press release:
Energy-intensive CPU and GPU configurations require a highly-stability power supply in order to ensure normal system operations and provide players with computing efficiency and good e-sport experiences. Compared to traditional Multi Rail, Single Rail 12VO power supplies that adopt the 12V+12Vsb circuit design, the power conversion efficiency can be effectively enhanced. Output voltage stability can be controlled to reduce energy conversion loss, providing players with a smart risk control experience.
SFX 12VO power supply, compared to existing Multi Rail, shows a great disparity in wire design. The SFX12VO power supply wire has been reduced from MB 24 pin to MB10 pin. The original CPU 4+4 is retained, and PCle 8 pin or 6+2 pin is provided for graphics cards. Therefore, in terms of wire design, SFX 12VO features the advantages of convenient wire trimming, easy repair and assembly, good heat dissipation in the system space, etc. It is suitable for use in e-sport PCs and e-sport NUCs.

- Multiple protection mechanisms: OCP, OVP, SCP, OPP, OTP
As noted by Intel last year, the new ATX12VO standard is growing in relevance due to various regulations that governments have enacted for reducing energy usage in desktop computers. They include the EPA’s ENERGY STAR for Computers v8 in 2020, the California Energy Commission Title 20, Tier 2 requirement in 2021, and Japan’s Top Runner program in 2022.
