GIGABYTE AORUS P1200W: technical features of the modular gaming power supply with LCD display


Well-known hardware manufacturer GIGABYTE recently announced the new AORUS P1200W power supply. It is a 1200 Watt modular model with 80+ Platinum certification. The power supply also includes a real-time monitoring system for the health and performance of the device, all packaged in a compact design cooled by a 140mm fan.

Let's see what are the characteristics of the GIGABYTE AORUS P1200W, power supply clearly dedicated to the world of extreme PC gaming.

The main characteristics of the AORUS P1200W modular power supply With the increasing power consumption of CPU and GPU , this new GIGABYTE AORUS P1200W power supply is an ideal solution for high-end computers. As the name suggests, the power supply can deliver up to 1200 Watts of electrical power to meet even the highest demands. Thanks to its 80+ Platinum certification it manages to be extremely efficient in powering the various components of the gaming computer. Energy efficiency of over 92% not only reduces heat loss, but also helps gamers save on electricity bills.

Inside the device we find exclusively Japanese capacitors, a smart double bearing fan ball bearing and a fully modular feeding system. When the power load is less than 20%, the fan stops automatically to achieve a noise-free environment. The ventilation system also has a special function for removing the dust accumulated inside, in order to clean the device and ensure its optimal operation over time.

The multifunctional LCD display of the AORUS P1200W The main feature of the AORUS P1200W is the digital monitoring function. Through the LCD display on the power supply, the output power, the current for each voltage, the speed and temperature of the fan and other parameters on the health and performance of the hardware can be monitored in real time. In addition to the LCD screen, the power supply also supports the AORUS Engine software to be able to check the same values ​​even within your Windows operating system. Through RGB Fusion instead you can customize the LCD display according to your preferences to display only the values ​​that interest you. In addition to the operating parameters, videos or GIF images can also be configured.

Speaking of dimensions, this modular power supply from GIGABYTE is only 160 mm long. This not only allows for more space to make the airflow in the case smoother, but the power supply can also be installed more easily in a small chassis. In addition, its modular design ensures gamers can install only the cables needed for the components in the computer, saving space and optimizing cable management.

The overall dimensions of the AORUS P1200W modular power supply Here are all the technical specifications of the GIGABYTE AORUS P1200W power supply:

Aorus P1200W modular PSU features expansive LCD monitor

Gigabyte has launched a new power supply to join its Aorus P-series modular display line-up. Joining the P750W, and P850W power supplies the new Aorus P1200W is the most powerful yet, by far, as well as being the most efficient (80-Plus Platinum rated, the others are 80-Plus gold). However, there is an even more glaring difference – as per our headline, Gigabyte has seen fit to add a large LCD panel. In the fevered minds of the Aorus designers, the concept 'Welcome to the Digital Code Era,' is the central reason why the display was implemented.

The Aorus P1200W modular PSU's display is of an unknown type and resolution. Gigabyte describes it as an 'LCD Monitor'. From the images of the product, it looks like it offers quite detailed and sharp imagery, and video playback within an asymmetric frame. Aorus has thought up five reasons you might want an LCD monitor on your PSU, as you can see in the image below. The most convincing and practical sounding reason is for digital monitoring - real-time power consumption wattage, current, temperature, fan speed and other values can be displayed.

As well as the sizable LCD monitor on one side of this 150 x 160 x 86mm ATX PSU (same compact size as the other Aorus P-series), Gigabyte would like to highlight the following attractive features:

  • 80 PLUS Platinum certified
  • Fully modular design
  • 100 per cent Japanese capacitors
  • 140mm smart double ball bearing fan
  • Fan dust removal function
  • Single +12V rail
  • OVP/OPP/SCP/UVP/OCP/OTP protection
  • 10 years warranty (Adjusted according to different regions)
  • For reference, the modular connectors available to users are shown above, alongside the PSU efficiency curve chart (click to zoom). Gigabyte says that the 140mm fan in this PSU will smartly stop in scenarios where there are loads of 240W or lower, and remain at 20dB or less up to approx 720W power draw. You can compare the Aorus P1200W modular PSU specs with its 750 and 850W brethren here.

    Gigabyte has put an aRGB backlit Aorus logo in a wedge section below the display. This can be customised with the RGB Fusion 2.0 software for lighting / sync effects. It doesn't say so, but the same software is probably where you will set up the display content, whether it be real-time monitor data, an image, GIF animation loop, or video.

    At the time of writing, I don't have pricing or availability details for the new Aorus P1200W modular PSU with LCD panel.
