MEG Ai1300P and MEG Ai1000P PCIE5 Power Supply Units

With MSI motherboards now integrating the latest technologies such as PCIe 5.0, the power supply is also becoming an important aspect of a computer build. This is why MSI's upcoming MEG Ai1300P and MEG Ai1000P PCIE5 power supply will be crucial for many gamers. The MEG Ai1300P and MEG Ai1000P PCIE5 power supply units are MSI's first PCIe 5.0 and ATX 3.0 ready high-end power supply units. This power supply unit comes with the updated 16-pin PCIe 5.0 power connector that can provide up to 600W in power. So even the most advanced graphics cards can be powered with no problem. It can automatically detect the power loading and internal system temperature to adjust the fan speed. When the loading is below 55% or the temperature is below 70 degrees, the fan will automatically stop to reduce noise and conserve energy. The MEG Ai1300P / Ai1000P PCIE5 also comes with real-time monitoring of power-related information such as output wattage to CPU/GPU or the current power efficiency.
