ASUS has introduced the ROG Loki series of power supplies. They were developed to build compact yet highly efficient gaming PCs. The series consists of SFX-L power supply models with an output of 1200, 1000, 850 and 750 W.
All ROG Loki power supplies have a new 16-pin PCIe 5.0 power cable that can deliver up to 600W of power to the most powerful gaming graphics cards. Traditionally for the premium segment, the new ROG Loki series are equipped with high-quality Japanese capacitors with low equivalent series resistance (Low-ESR) and offer a wide range of protective mechanisms of all kinds. A 120 mm fan is responsible for cooling the power supply components.
In terms of efficiency, the older 1200W ROG Loki power supply claims 80 Plus Titanium certification. This means that the efficiency of the power supply when operated on a 230 V network, the efficiency indicator is at the level of 94–96%. The remaining models in the series are 80 Plus Platinum certified, which means that their efficiency is between 89 and 94%.
ASUS ROG Loki SFX-L power supplies will be available later this year. However, the manufacturer does not state when exactly, nor does it state the expected cost. ASUS is ready to offer a 10-year warranty on all power supply models of the specified series. A separate three-year guarantee is given for RGB backlights that are equipped with new parts.
Potential buyers of these power supplies should be aware that SFX-L form factor power supplies are 3 cm deeper than SFX models. In other words, they don’t fit into a typical Mini-ITX case model because they don’t fully meet the technical requirements for their dimensions. At the same time, the innovations fit perfectly into gaming models of mini-ITX cases, where there is usually more space.
