Corsair has officially introduced the RMx Shift series of power supplies. It includes models with power from 750 to 1200 watts. The main feature of the new products is support for the ATX 3.0 power supply standard, as well as an unusual location of connectors for connecting cables – on the side panel instead of on the back.
Unlike other PSU models on the market where the power connectors are located on the back and routed deep into the computer case, the new Corsair RMx Shift has moved the power cable connectors to the side panel, making them easier to access. The manufacturer advises that for the correct installation of the updated RMx Shift power supplies, there must be at least 30mm clearance between the side panel of the computer case and the power supply connectors.
All Corsair power supplies in the updated RMx Shift series are ATX 3.0 certified and 80 PLUS Gold certified. Their efficiency under load is over 90%. All novelties use a modular design and flat cables. Support for new graphics cards with a PCIe 5.0 power scheme is shown for all models. However, they are not equipped with the native 12+4 pin 12VHPWR connector. Support for GeForce RTX 40 series accelerators is provided by the adapter included in the power supply kit with the correct connector.
The manufacturer indicates the use of Japanese capacitors in new products. PSU components are cooled by 140mm fans with fluid dynamic bearings. The fans have a full stop function and do not rotate when the system is under low load.
Corsair grants a 10-year guarantee on these power supplies. The cost of the 750W model was not disclosed by the company at the time of publication. The 850W version is $160, the 1000W model is $210, and the 1200W version is $270.
