Last year ASUS entered the power supply market. We reviewed their ROG Thor 1200W Power supply, a heavily modified Seasonic unit that delivered superb results – well if you could afford the £315 asking price. Today we take a look at the 850 watt model priced around £200, meaning it will target a much wider audience.
ASUS Republic Of Gamers is a flagship brand for ASUS. Its a well known, high end, and often expensive range of products and the THOR series of power supplies are no exception. ASUS are using 100% Japanese capacitors throughout alongside their patented Wing-Blade fan design with 0db technology.
They are also utilising an integrated heatsink solution which they claim delivers better performance that competing designs with 20% lower load temperatures. This they say will enhance life span.
ASUS seem confident with the design and are offering a 10 year warranty.
