From an ASUS ROG post:
Power supplies are at the heart of all gaming machines, built to provide your system with clean and stable power for years and years. As we continue to look to the future of gaming PSU design, ROG is proud to announce that all Loki, Strix Gold Aura Edition, and TUF Gaming Gold power supplies will natively support the ATX 3.0 standard. That means that every PSU will come with a native 16-pin to 16-pin 12VHPWR cable to pair with current and upcoming graphics cards. For owners of select current models, we are also offering a free native 2×8-pin to 16-pin 12VHPWR cable to keep your build looking as sleek as possible and fully compatible with the graphics cards of tomorrow.
Other power supplies we currently sell, such as the ROG Thor Platinum II series, will also come with a native 2×8-pin to 16-pin 12VHPWR cable in the box. If you’re the owner of an older ROG-branded power supply, you’re in luck as well. Gamers who have purchased an eligible ROG PSU and an ASUS GeForce RTX™ 40 Series graphics card can receive a free 2×8-pin to 16 pin PCIe cable from ROG right now, giving you the same build flexibility as our next generation PSUs and ensuring full compatibility with the graphics cards of the future.
