Gigabyte Launches UD1000GM PCIE 5.0 Power Supply

Gigabyte Technology Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of premium gaming hardware, today announced the new UD1000GM PCIE 5.0 power supply, which supports the latest PCIe Gen 5.0 graphics cards. The UD1000GM PCIE 5.0 has a 16-pin connector and comes with a high-quality native 16-pin cable, allowing it to support the latest PCIe Gen 5.0 graphics cards. The 16-pin cable supports up to 600 watts of power to the graphics card making it ready for the future high-end graphics cards.

The UD1000GM PCIE 5.0 power supply supports the PCIe Gen 5.0 graphics cards and it is capable to deliver the increasing power that the high-end graphics card demand. Traditional power supplies need a three 8-pin to 16-pin adapters to support the latest PCIe Gen 5.0 graphics cards. The new UD1000GM PCIE 5.0 power supply needs only a single 16-pin cable to directly supply power to the PCIe Gen 5.0 graphics cards. Moreover, the PCIe Gen 5.0 16-pin cable provides up to 600 watts of power to the graphics card, but it also simplifies the number of cables, significantly reducing the cable clutter, making the graphics card installation easier and it helps with the airflow in the chassis. In addition, the UD1000GM PCIE 5.0 also provides four PCIe 8-pins for the graphics cards, so it can meet the needs of current or next-generation high-end graphics cards at the same time.
The UD1000GM PCIE 5.0 power supply inherits the spirit of Gigabyte Ultra Durable product design, introducing a variety of high-quality materials and designs. Ultra Durable design combines high-quality main Japanese capacitors, enhanced thermal solution, 120 mm smart hydraulic bearing (HYB) fan, and six circuit protection designs. Moreover, it provides users with high-quality and stable power delivery, and it can be used for a long time. In addition, the UD1000GM PCIE 5.0 power supply also features 80 PLUS Gold certification, fully modular design and compact design. It is the best choice for high-end gamers and overclockers.

Gigabyte launches the UD1000GM PCIE 5.0 to support PCIe Gen 5.0 graphics cards. It meets the needs of current and future high-end graphics cards, but also provides high-quality and stable power in accordance with Gigabyte's quality requirements for UD series products.

And here I was hoping this new standard might lead to standardization of PSU-side pinouts as well. Instead we get this abomination, with what looks like a 4-pin Dupont connector glued to the top of a 12-pin Micro-fit? Hooray, now custom cabling will be even more difficult to make!

It is standardised though, all 12VHPWR PSUs so far has the same connector.

Now only if we adapted ATX12VO that easily...it's a bit more involved, though. :p

You want to pay even more for motherboards? Especially considering there's a very low supply of PMIC chips right now and at least 52 weeks lead time if you place an order today.

Exactly, and since power=heat=noise I doubt that we'll get such crazy cards

I sure hope we won't have to deal with 500W rated cards again. My undervolted 180W 3070 is nice and cool, and runs faster than stock.

Does that 'spirit' mean 'we just slap a random sticker on the same product which was known to explode just so we can sell it as a different thing' ?

Send it to Aris, then we're talking.

Regarding their ability to use their crystal ball and predict the future on yet to be released potentially crazy loud GPUs. it's the perfect setup for them to introduce another new product, the Gigabyte Aorus RGB earplugs.

they will come with the tag line "Sure our PSU's might explode, but at least your eardrums won't"

Man, the P750GM situation has really soiled Gigabyte's reputation in the PSU market.

I was ready to get one tonight for my GTX 1060 OC, but this PSU missing the half-passive DC fan selector switch.
This is a 100% Not designed in Taiwan engineering, they do not skip such important details.

that i believe would fall squarely on the product manager's shoulders. seems its the same one who approved the P850GM/P750GM sparkler designs.
