We have worked on it and currently new stock of PSU with more tolerance with Vega are being shipped for release to market since few weeks/months. Only older version may have issue with Vega. Here, too, a question, just contact us and we will assist the best we can.

Thanks.

So it also applies to anyone currently owning TITANIUM series Power supplies as well?


I've got the older Prime model but will the latest Ultra model release, work soundly with the current RX Vega cards?

No only with some FOCUS Plus.

Good, so I'll buy this baby; SeaSonic PRIME AirTouch 850 Gold SSR-850GD 850W.

Need it to power a 2700X and Sapphire RX56 video card (over clocked). You better be right about it working effectively with all AMD RX video card models.

So I saw this on jonnyguru .. https://knowledge.seasonic.com/artic...ibility-issues

so I own a seasonic focus+ gold 750 and a vega 64 (reference design made by sapphire with a morpheus ii cooler attached). and I just had my system shutdown when I was trying to play player unknown battlegrounds. Happened when the plane scene started. Entire system just powered right off. I think I heard a click the moment it just happened. Motherboard still had power as my gigabyte board has led's all over it stayed lit. Which I thought was odd because normally when I power off they turn off.

Power supply was quite warm too. I could feel the heat on its grill. So I don't think its limited to just 550 watt units. Odd thing is I can run an hour of heaven benchmark loops or an hour of fire strike loops just fine. But to be honest pubg has been the first gpu heavy game I tried since I got my vega 64 a month ago.

Prior to it I had a vega 56 reference as well that I bought in November 2017 and ran it with this psu. No issues. But I am well aware the vega 64 has a bigger power draw. So for the meantime of process of elimination of wanting to make sure I'm correct it was my psu I ordered a Evga G3 850 watt as I have no spare to try. I noticed seasonic is telling users to contact them. I wonder if I should even bother.

The Vega 65 can spike as high as 380w according to Tom's Hardware and can average just under 300w. PUBG is pretty poorly coded and I wouldn't be surprised if launching it briefly pegs every part of your system to 100%, I'm not saying that's what's happening but could it be possible? A 380w spike doesn't leave much left over to run the rig.
As for if you should even bother...that depends on whether or not you want Seasonic to try to resolve the issue (assuming it's at fault).

I'll admit I was a bit sadden and salty about it when I wrote all of that. After a seasonic rep messaged me on jonny I went ahead and emailed seasonic about it to see what they can do and/ or advise. I do feel like I should step up an extra 100 watts with a 850 though. 380 watt spikes is pretty darn high. With all the fans I have, RGB galore going on in my case, hard drives, ssd's, extra, with my vega 64 I'm really running it close on 750 watts I feel like. And yeah pubg is pretty awful resource wise. Actually touches all 16 threads of my 2700x to a degree.

Cancel that G3 unless you really like huge jumps up and down in fan speed and noise

Wow, who would figure that a GPU could cause ripple problems w/an otherwise fine PSU under load. The Vega 64 issues w/pulling 600+ Watt transients is just crazy.

Fine? According to whom? You? Some other anonymous poster with, i'm sure, about 12 degrees in electronics-related subjects?
If all you've to add is nothing, why post.

Yes, the card's a power-thirsty monster, unfortunately. Even so though, this doesn't happen to all PSUs out there, now does it; in fact..
And what you've deduced from this is that it's the card's 'fault'? Well done, lol.
Oh, and also, it's cards yeah? Plural. In said same one, specific PSU line; from said same one, specific company

Anyway, kudos to Seasonic for being on top of this from the getgo.

Pride, honour and purity.

I feel like the G2 is better than the G1+ , since it has eco fan mode as well as no transient problems from the design.

The 650 G1+'s transient response was really bad. Then again, we didn't expect anything better, given the ACRF topology EVGA uses.

Ripple suppression was very good at 12V, and merely satisfactory on the 5V and 5VSB rails.

Value (20% of the final score) - at Newegg, where they are currently misquoting me on this unit based on the 850W model review, this unit is going for $99.99. That's the same price as they have listed on the superior G2 unit
