Widespread PCIe 5.0 power adoption from PSU makers is a sign of things to come
Gigabyte has become the latest PSU manufacturer to reveal a power supply that features support for the PCIe 5.0 power standard. This new power standard comes with a new 16-pin connector that's capable of delivering up to 600 watts of power to supported hardware, paving the way towards more power hungry graphics cards and other hardware.
So far, ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte has confirmed that they are launching PCIe 5.0 complainant power supplies, and that tells us one thing. Next-generation graphics cards are definately using PCIe 5.0 power. ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte all manufacture graphics cards for the DIY PC market, which means that they know what power standards their future hardware will utilise. They are all adopting the PCIe 5.0 standard, and that means that future GPUs will aswell.
Gigabyte's Press release (which is included below) for their new UD1000GM 1000W power supply states that "Traditional power supplies need a three 8-pin to 16-pin adapters to support the latest PCIe Gen 5.0 graphics cards". That's a lot of cable clutter to manage, and three PCIe 8-pin (6+2-pin) power connectors can only deliver up to 450W of power. 16-pin PCIe 5.0 power cables can deliver up to 600W of power, which is equivalent to four 8-pin PCIe power cables.
Gigabyte has claimed that their new UD1000GM 1000W power supply is the "best choice for high-end gamers and overclockers", citing its high power limits and PCIe 5.0 GPU compatibility. That means that next-generation PSUs will require a lot of power, especially within the high-end market.
Press Release - 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.
