Gigabyte introduced the UD1000GM PG5 power supply, its first power supply to support the new PCIe 5.0 power standard. It is curious that the manufacturer has apparently not decided what to name the new power connector. In the characteristics of the novelty, it appears under four different names.
PSU Gigabyte UD1000GM PG5 is 1000 watts. It claims to meet the 80 Plus Gold efficiency standard. The dimensions of the power supply are very compact – only 150 mm long. It features a fully modular cable system.
Gigabyte has four names for the new PCIe 5.0 connector: PCIe Gen5, 12+4-pin, 16-pin, and 12VHPWR. Technically all are correct. but for a new food standard It would be more convenient to have only one universal name, so as not to confuse a potential buyer. Since there are already 6-pin, 6+2-pin, 8-pin and 12-pin power connectors on the market, it is logical to assume that the designations 12+4-pin or 16-pin for power supplies on the most common will be manufacturers.
The UD1000GM PG5 power supply itself is an upgraded version of the UD1000GM model without a PCIe 5.0 slot. You can see the difference between them in the picture below.
Gigabyte did not share information about the availability of the UD1000GM PG5 power supply and the recommended cost.
