ASUS has updated its power supply catalog with the ROG Strix Gold Aura Edition Series, a new series of ATX 3.0 power supplies that feature 16-pin PCIe support, improved cooling, and Aura Sync RGB to provide stable, efficient, cool, and quiet power alongside flash for next-gen systems:

Like its predecessor, the ROG Strix Gold Aura Edition series—available in 750W, 850W, 1000W, and 1200W variants–stand apart from competing power supplies thanks to a larger heatsink for cool, quiet operation. With twice the volume of traditional PSU heatsinks, this design allows for lower temperatures, longer component lifespan, and longer 0dB operation under light and medium loads. However, with the ROG Strix Gold Aura Edition, we went even further: the entire power supply is now encased in a sleek aluminum chassis that acts as its own heatsink, further reducing temperatures and minimizing noise.

All this heat dissipation is aided by our 135mm Axial-tech fan design, featuring a dual ball bearing for long-term operation and longer fan blades to improve airflow. It also shares the same 80 Plus Gold certification as its predecessor, with efficient, low-ESR Japanese capacitors rated to last up to twice as long as standard caps.

ASUS goes on to reiterate that its ROG Strix Aura Edition PSUs feature the new 16-pin power connector, making them suitable for newer graphics cards such as NVIDIA’s flagship Lovelace GPU for gamers:

Arguably the biggest upgrade, however, is the new 16-pin power connector for modern graphics cards. While previous power supplies required an adapter for use with certain modern GPUs, the ROG Strix Gold Aura Edition power supplies are bundled with a native 16-pin PCIe cable that can pipe up to 600W of clean, stable power directly to your ROG Strix GeForce RTX 4090 or TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4090 — no adapter required.

These PSUs are backed by a 10-year limited warranty, although their RGB LEDs are subject only to a 3-year warranty.
