ROG Thor 1200W Platinum, some information
We do not yet know much about its characteristics. The mechanics meet the constraints of the 80Plus Platinum label. It offers high efficiency and a race to waste energy.
The press photograph shows a 100% modular connection in order to connect only the bare essentials. This choice limits the excess cables in a tower. Storage becomes more efficient and the air flow is improved. RGB is not forgotten with a backlight system compatible with Aura technology.
Asus goes one step further since we learned that the block has a 135mm IP5X certified fan and an OLED Power Display panel. It will allow real-time monitoring of various data such as electricity consumption. The block is advertised with 0dB operation suggesting that the fan is capable of shutting down completely under certain circumstances.
