More information on MSI’s MEG Ai computer power supplies has been released. For the company, it is the first series suitable for PCI Express 5.0 and ATX 3.0. These are the advanced MEG Series power supplies with 80 Plus Platinum certification.
The lineup currently consists of two models: the MEG Ai1300P PCIE5, with a capacity of 1300 watts, and the MEG AI1000P PCIE5, with a capacity of 1000 watts. Both models use the latest 16-pin PCI Express 5.0 power connector with a maximum output of 600W. This allows video cards like the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 Ti to punch through.
The fan controller measures temperature and load and then adjusts the fan’s rotational speed. At 55 percent load or less, the fan stops or when the temperature is below 70 degrees. The 1300W model has a power data monitoring function.
At the time of writing, MSI has not yet shared any information regarding availability and pricing.

Meanwhile, Twitterer Chi11eddog has shared some internal documents in which the upcoming feed line is being discussed. MSI reaffirms that the Ai-psu complies with atx 3.0 and PCie 5.0 standards: it must be able to absorb current peaks of up to twice the maximum wattage, in the case of a graphics card even peak values of up to 3x are stated. A GPU that uses the full 600 watts of a 12VHPWR plug can draw up to 1800 watts for very short periods, without system crashes.
So far, it remains unclear when MSI plans to launch these advanced power sources.
