ASUS has shared an article detailing its latest PSUs, the ROG Loki series, which are designed in the SFX-L form factor for use in Mini-ITX builds.
Available in 1200-, 1000-, 850-, and 750-watt variants, one of the most notable features of the ROG Loki lineup is the inclusion of the new PCIe 5.0 power connector. Comprising a total of sixteen pins, the connector is capable of providing up to 600 watts of power for next-generation GPUs.
“The Loki is […] PCIe Gen 5.0 ready, bundled with a 16-pin PCIe cable that can pipe up to 600W of power to modern compatible graphics cards,” ASUS confirmed in its press release.
“The 1200W model is the highest capacity SFX-L PSU available on the market, marking an incredible achievement in engineering and an excellent opportunity for builders pushing the limits of the small form factor PCs,” added ASUS. “The ROG Loki 1200W also reaches the incredibly stringent efficiency levels set by the 80 PLUS Titanium certification, achieving greater than 90% efficiency from loads as low as 10% all the way up to maximum output. The other models sport the 80 PLUS Platinum badge.”
There doesn’t seem to be any confirmation yet as to whether ASUS ROG’s new Loki PSUs feature a silent mode for users who are aiming for a quieter system, but the company has promised that they include a larger heatsink for better heat dissipation and lower hotspot temperatures. The 120-mm fan also features ARGB for lighting effects.
