Gigabyte's New 1200W Aorus Power Supply Has a Built-In Display

From PC Mag: Power supplies (PSU) are an essential part of any desktop computer, but not a component it's easy to get excited about. Gigabyte is aiming to change that by adding an LCD to its latest modular power block.

As Hexus reports, the Gigabyte Aorus P1200W is a fully modular PSU, which makes for easier cable management. It not only offers 1200W of power and keeps noise to a minimum using a 140mm smart fan, but it's 80 Plus Platinum certified for power efficiency. That's the second highest rating for power efficiency (behind 80 Plus Titanium).

The feature making the P1200W stand out from the crowd, however, is the inclusion of an LCD on the side. Gigabyte calls it a "Digital LCD Monitor" and expects it to be used to display the health status of the power supply in real time. The output is customizable, though. You can display custom text, GIFs, MP4 video, or images.

There's also RGB Fusion 2.0 support, which allows for lighting effects to be triggered behind the Aorus logo and below the display on the PSU.
