The MPG GF Series has a full modular cable design. Cable management is one of the most troublesome part of building a PC, so this full modular cable design gives users the freedom to decide what cables they want to use. This significantly saves up space of the chassis and helps keep the system's components clean and organized. The MPG GF Series also comes with flat cables that are easier to use and organize. With the help of the full modular cable design and flat cables, the entire system can be more organized and has more room for unobstructed airflow.

The MPG GF Series offers a range of products that are versatile and reliable. With the help of other existing MSI products including PC cases, liquid coolers, and motherboards, our users can now enjoy a more mature and established MSI gaming ecosystem with the new addition of the MPG GF Series.

well I would think this is probably pointing at a 650w requirement for minimum for the 3090 if this power supply certified for the new connector and we know the new connector is what the reference 3080 is built around.

So much for the AMD fanboys screaming about 850 watt required for 3090!

Like I've already said that was just the minimum seasonic felt of their own product lines that could guarantee enough juice over 2 pci connectors but the minimum will he less and the load on most adapters will be spread across 3x 8 pin (like this 650w unit offers (while still being guaranteed for support of Nvidias new standard.

Depends on what wire gauge is used and how OCP is set up in your PSU. Theoretically you could hook up an RTX 3090 + i9-10900K combo on a 500-550W unit, but then overclocking is out of the question. Also I probably wouldn't run this setup around 90% of PSU utilization due to sound concerns more then anything. Around 60% is the sweet spot for efficiency and sound profile for most PSUs, so around 900-1000W for the whole system seems reasonable enough.

But even still you could and can run this on a decent 650W, you are still getting that 350-400W TGP worth of heat too that comes with the chonker Ampere.

Based on the four 12V rails, modular sockets and housing screws I would say this is PSU build by CWT, their GPU design to be exact. And then like the Bitfenix Whisper series, not like the Corsair RMx 2018 series. Because it looks exactly like the Bitfenix Whisper series.

Dang it, I saw the headline & was expecting it to say that they had switched over to the 12 pin connectors/cables....

Oh well, maybe next round :D

Now if they enter the ssd and memory market, than one could possibly buy all the components from MSI. Is this Seasonic made?

MSI may not be in a lot of people's good books at the moment with their recent transgressions, but it's hard to get upset about more companies trying to sell PSUs - especially sensible Wattage ones and not 1500W+ monsters at several hundred dollars.

Because of it I have become fanboy of ASUS motherboards, my period of experimenting with my wallet this is over 15 years ago.

Recent transgression, such as? I know the PR-rep statements that come out from time to time... and are questionable to say the least, but product wise?

As a rule of thumb I try to just avoid being a fanboy in general. Keep an open mind and assume that any company can produce a turd or make a terrible decision.

Blind loyalty is what companies like Apple exploit to the max. If you jumped in a time machine and told an iPhone4 user that the flagship phone they paid $199 for would cost $1200 in 2020, they'd laugh and say that it was never going to happen.

I think they were referring to the recent example of MSI threatening to hold back product samples from a reviewer because he refused to not publish a bad review of a laptop.

That is the recent transgression I was referring to. Attempting to silence independent reviewers is really, really low. It's basically blackmail when as a reviewer your livelihood depends on being sent stuff to review.

This it might was wrong use of words from my end, but I have no better words to use so to describe my satisfaction with ASUS at the period 2002~2010.
ASUS service partner in Greece he did even honor the five years warranty period when my P4G-800E deluxe this suffered from an issue after of 4.5 years.
I did receive a refurbished replacement within a month.
At that period I did purchase an P4P-800E deluxe as NEW, because of fear that ASUS it might not shown as flexible at solving the problem.
Later on I did upgrade at the ASUS board at my signature, not a random choice, only ASUS offered DDR3 capable motherboard for the Q6600 CPU.
This is a similar option to GTS 1660 Super which using fresher technology of RAM.

The old school P4G-800E deluxe this was 200 Euro priced board with several RAID controllers over it, and also this be a monster of performance and stability.

In summary, not every product of ASUS this has the innovation that I am always seeking for, but in the end ASUS in my eyes this is the one acting more times than others, as technology innovator at their high end motherboards.
