In the PC world, new technologies are often adopted first for full-sized desktops and then for compact systems. This is what happened to Intel’s ATX 12VO (ATX 12V only) standard for power supplies first introduced in ATX systems. However, the new technology eventually moved to most of the form factor, and this week FSP Introduced Industry’s first SFX12VO (12 volt only) power supply for compact systems and builds.
FSP’s STX 12VO PSU is fully compliant with Intel’s ATX 12VO specification and features a single rail 12V + 12Vsb circuit design. The ATX 12VO standard replaces traditional 24-pin power cables with 10-pin power cables, completely eliminating 3.3V / 5V peripheral rails and cables. Therefore, the FSP’s FSP750-27SCB and FSP650-27SCB have one MB10-pin connector, a 4 + 4-pin EPS12V connector for the CPU, and two auxiliary power connectors for the graphics card (one 8-pin, 6 +). There is only one 2 pin).
FSP uses high quality Japanese electrolytic capacitors for SFX 12VO PSU and has multiple protection mechanisms such as overcurrent protection (OCP), overvoltage protection (OVP), short circuit protection (SCP) and overpower protection (OPP). It states that it is prepared. , And overheat protection (OTP).
Due to the significant simplification of the internal PSU architecture, FSP’s STX12VO PSU is much easier to create than the corresponding ATX compliant SFX. Unfortunately, it’s still unclear if this simplification will affect the price of these PSUs, but the first ones will be cheaper, especially in the midst of a pandemic and associated supply shortages. Rarely. However, the circuit that converts the 12V rail to 3.3V / 5V is located on a 12VO standard motherboard, which adds some additional elements to the platform that may affect pricing. ..
FSP has not announced the release date of the SFX 12VO PSU, but since the company Presentation They are corporate websites and we hope they will be the first to be available to FSP OEM customers.
However, expect SFX systems with 12V OPSU to hit the market in the near future.Keep that in mind in California and several other states PC power consumption requirements in idle mode are becoming more and more stringent.. Also, one way to comply with this is to adopt the ATX 12VO. As a result, the introduction of the SFX 12VO PSU could be boosted by companies seeking compliance while providing powerful PCs.
