EVGA Releases PSU Intel Haswell Compatibility List

Well Intel Haswell has been released and EVGA has been pretty quiet on the power supply front as far as what is and what would not be compatible with Intel Haswell. Well EVGA may be late to the party but they have confirmed that all of the EVGA PSUs will be compatible with Intel Haswell C6 and C7 idle power states. To read more about it check out our article here. The quick story is that Intel Haswell drops idle power consumption from 0.5 amps that Ivy Bridge operates at, to 0.05 amps that Intel Haswell’s C6 and C7 gets it to. This is a 10x improvement from Intel’s third generation to the forth generation of processors. This is definitely one thing that Intel got right over Haswell as far as a huge improvement.
