    Default Cybenetics launches Powenetics project

    https://www.cybenetics.com/index.php?option=powenetics

    Welcome to the Powenetics project, which allows the accurate power measurements of graphics cards and SSD/HDDs. This system was designed with three main purposes in mind: to be highly affordable, easy to use and provide accurate data with fast polling rates, in order to be able to “catch” power spikes.

    This is fantastic! Having a central location for real power requirements of graphics cards and SSDs/HDDs is going to be awesome. I do wish CPUs were included also but it's fine.

    CPUs will be next. We need a new project to deal with, now that the GPU/HDD/SSD one is finished.

    CPUs aren't really important. There is no reason to do that because they don't cause any problems.

    Graphics cards are the most interesting thing because they do some strange stuff and cause Problems with some PSU.

    One thing you might want to get is an MSI 1080Ti and test that one.
    Because that might switch off some PSU, maybe even Corsair HX750(i)...

    Not entirely true. Though it's more in rare cases with certain boards and the "Extreme Edition" level chips.

    It's still relevant to see actual CPU power consumption no matter what.

    it is so difficult to get VGA samples when you are mostly known for PSUs. This will change soon enough (I hope at least).

    thanks! BTW CPU power consumption is now supported, in the enhanced version of the application, and very soon the project will be available worldwide to anyone interested. There will be a fee though, for two reasons:

    1) There is a lot of work involved and from the moment we will fully support it, we need work hours devoted on this project alone.
    2) If you give something for free, almost nobody appreciates it

    The fee will be highly affordable though and it will include the software, the know-how to build and operate the system and one year of support. The parts cost around 500 bucks, so at the fraction of the price of using scopes and current clamps, someone can have a fully capable power monitoring station and check from GPUs and CPUs, to SSDs and HDDs.
