ASUS at COMPUTEX 2019 announces the ROG Strix 750W and 650W power supply units. These are the first Strix branded PSUs from ASUS, following the release of the premium ROG Thor PSU last year.
An entry into the mainstream PSU market
ASUS at their event, more specifically, Steve Funcke, their open platform technical specialist, openly stated that this year will signal a massive expansion throughout their series. That of course includes the Strix that started from a humble graphics line up.
The Strix, together with the TUF Gaming line up will see more releases this year. That includes the TUF Gaming monitors with ELMB-Sync feature.
Rock solid feature set
Apart from the 80 Plus Gold certification, both the 750W and 650W models features the critically acclaimed ROG heatsink, first seen on the ROG Thor PSU. This feature allows the PSU to reach better temperature output even with a slower fan RPM. Ultimately contributing to a more silent power supply.
Speaking of the fan, the ASUS took the opportunity to include the Axial-tech fan found on their higher end graphics. This inclusion allowed for a more focus airflow and less turbulence. If I remember correctly, the ASUS Axial-tech fan is also IPX5 dust-proof.
The ASUS ROG Strix PSU line-up also features removable cosmetic covers that serves two purposes. First off, the most obvious one is the added bling factor. Second, it allows a seamless multiple PSU orientation and or positioning without hampering the looks of the unit.
Pricing and Availability
Unfortunately, especially with recently revealed products at COMPUTEX, ASUS has yet to open their mouth about the pricing and availability of both Strix PSU models. That said, we could only guess where it’ll land mainly due to the series’ mainstream geared nature. We’re expecting the units to be slated between the $150-$250 USD mark.
As for the availability, the ASUS ROG Thor got released by the October of 2018. Expect its release around 3 to 4 months time.
