Enermax exhibited the first ATX3.0 and ATX12VO dual-mode power supply
Enermax had previously declared its intent to exhibit a range of new products at this year’s Computex 2023, among which includes the inaugural ATX3.0 and ATX12VO dual-mode power supply.
Entitled “Platinum 1200 12VO,” this first ATX3.0 and ATX12VO dual-mode power supply have a rated power of 1200W. It boasts a fully modular design, has achieved 80PLUS Platinum certification, and is equipped with a 12VHPWR power interface capable of a 600W output. This power supply not only supports the Intel 12VO specification, offering a 10Pin 12V only motherboard power interface, thus enhancing the power efficiency but can also toggle to support traditional ATX3.0 power and interface solutions. Enermax proclaims that this design sets the industry trend. It adopts the FMQ (Full Magnetic Quadrant) design, and the robust single +12V circuit can provide up to 166A of current.
As reported by Wccftech, the overall dimensions of the “Platinum 1200 12VO” are 150 x 150 x 86 mm, able to reach an efficiency of 74% under a 2% load. Furthermore, it complies with the CCC 5000M certification, a domestic certification designed for medical and aviation applications, testifying to the product’s reliability. In addition, it comes with standard ECO intelligent overload/overheat/overcurrent protection features, and incorporates a passive cooling design when the load is less than 60%.
Intel states that with the ATX 3.0 and ATX12VO 2.0 specifications, desktop users can achieve optimal performance on the new generation of graphics cards. The ATX 3.0 is the most significant power supply specification update by Intel since the launch of the ATX 2.0 specification in early 2003.
