    And there used to be some TX models with hardwired cables, 80plus regular to bronze and probably silver efficiency.

    How can you tell the difference between a CWT-built VS and an HEC-built one, from the look and sticker?

    Incorrect. The major rail (+12V) and one minor rail (+5V) aren't independently regulated, but the other minor rail (+3.3V) is.


    They ARE correct nowadays.

    As long as it handles a...

    If the PSU is 230V non-PFC model, it can have only 1 bulk cap with ~400V rated voltage, and the resistors in parallel with the bulk caps (which are necessary with 2 bulk caps in series) can be...

    There are two major problems with a rather old but high end power supply.
    First of all, its bulk capacitor and secondary capacitors have aged. Aged capacitors have lower capacity and higher ESR, so...

    The authority claimed that by the end of 2018 all taxis would be battery EVs.

    Edit: In January 2019 they said 99% of the taxis are BEV.

    Buick in China is kind of like Chevy in other countries. We have cars cheaper than Cruze and Trax sold under Buick badge. It's not a premium brand on par with Lexus/Infi, but a mainstream brand on...

    Have you tested SF600 Platinum on Vega 56/64 with Destiny 2 or PUBG?

    Don't try popular "power virus" programs like Furmark/AIDA64/3DMark/OCCT, since the video drivers deal with them too well.

    Interesting... Maybe we should play with Vega enabling Radeon Chill and see whether the peak current rises or not.

    According to a reviewer here, Focus Platinum produces excessive ripple if it's overloaded to a certain point. As far as I know, RX Vega and RTX2080Ti has the ability to overload a PSU because their...

    It's not capable as a flagship product. It's not even capable to be a 1100W PSU. It's pushed too hard to achieve the 80Plus Ti efficiency goal.

    Since nothing is new in "modern" units compared to the ancient Seasonic X, I don't think it's something wrong to re-release an "outdated" Delta design with modified connectors and OCP trip point.

    It's a multi-rail power supply which has lower current rating on CPU rail than on GPU rails. If manufacturer tells users to connect the CPU cable there, the CPU load goes to that rail.

    It seems that the 8-pin socket for CPU and PCIE cables share a same foolproof design, so I assume the pinouts are actually identical.

    Since 8700K has a PL2 cap of 140W, the software readings you saw might have revealed that. AVX draws the biggest power.

  23. Enthusiast GPUs and CPUs are more power-hungry than you think

    Not only do GPUs deviate from their official "TDP" specs, CPUs also do. Intel's latest multi-core CPUs can draw a peak current about 3x its TDP power.
