Intel officially released ATX 3.0 / ATX12VO 2.0 power supply standard

According to Intel's official website, the ATX 3.0 and ATX12VO 2.0 power standards have now been released to meet the power needs of new-generation hardware. Intel has now released the most significant update to the industry's power specification since the original ATX 2.0 specification was introduced in 2003, and the new ATX 3.0 specification will unlock the potential of technologies such as PCIe Gen 5.0.

In addition, Intel announced the ATX 2.0 specification, which provides the PC industry with an updated design blueprint for power supplies and motherboards that can reduce idle power consumption and help customers reduce power requirements.

The new specification adds a 12VHPWR connector that will power future PCIe 5.0 graphics cards, which can directly provide up to 600 watts of power to any PCIe 5.0 plug-in. ATX12VO 2.0 also adds I_PSU% capability to desktop platforms, providing Intel with innovative features previously available on mobile and server platforms. 

MSI recently launched its first ATX12VO-based desktop systems, the Creator P100A and MPG Trident AS, powered by 12th Gen Core processors with ATX12VO-compliant power supplies. Additional products based on the new ATX 3.0 and ATX12VO 2.0 specifications are expected in 2022.
