Offering 1000 watts of power output, a fully modular cable design, and an 80-Plus Platinum efficiency rating, the ASUS ROG Thor 1000W Platinum II already looks to tick all of the boxes the savvy consumer should have. This is also the very first consumer PSU to come, out of the box, with a PCIe 5.0 power connector! – Yes, this is 100% ready for the next leap forward in powering graphics cards! Without a doubt, however, what will mostly catch the more casual eye is the hugely impressive aesthetics of the design. Not only is this quite possibly one of the best-looking power supplies ever released, but ASUS has also thrown in some ARGB lighting embellishments. However, avoiding the pitfalls of going overboard, the ASUS ROG Thor 1000W Platinum II definitely looks to be catering to the enthusiast gamer market. And, at least on what we can see in terms of its features and presentation, it certainly seems well geared to that purpose.
