    Default MSI announces MPG GF series PSUs

    https://www.msi.com/news/detail/a995...23533b47e3786a

    Very generic gold full modular specs.
    Supports NVIDIA 12pin out-of-the-box.
    Any guess on manufacturer?

    + my guess is CWT GPU

    I also thought that this is CWT GPU like the Bitfenix Whisper series, because of the four 12V rails, modular sockets and housing screws which are on the same place.

    I wonder if "support for Nvidia's latest GPUs" means it comes with a 12pin cable included or if it just means it would work with the adapter.

    Literally every PSU with 8-pin enough PCI-E connectors would satisfy the latter, so it wouldn't be much of a point. Then again, marketing likes to make points of mundane things like Active PFC.

    Yeah complete marketing of existing technology.

    Not inaccurate or exactly misleading....it will indeed get the job done.

    They claim will "support"....not that it was designed exclusively for.

    Modular panel looks identical to Bitfenix Whisper M, Deepcool DQ-M and Enermax Revo DF, if these do, MSI does too.

    I have not been able to verify that DQ-M and Revo DF uses Type 4. Only Whisper M and XPG. Even CWT made Thermaltake use the same connector as Type 4 for the 6-pin, but the pinout is different.

    Whisper M and XPG use type 4 cables because product managers requested it. BitFenix sold Type compatible sleeved cable kits long before they launched Whisper M. It was much easier to use Type 4 as well instead of launching separate cable kits for new PSU line. Since one of the BitFenix guys now is in charge of XPG PSU I'm not surprised XPG also went for type 4.
