1000+W if you ever decide to over-clock.

Stock Vega 64 is rated at 300W

~800W is what you need at minimum, it's also very wise to undervolt V64, even when overclocking.

If you're overclocking the gpu's along with the cpu you will want a unit around 1000-1250w. I run a 1250w unit with my [email protected] and my SLI 980ti cards at 1450core and have no issues. Now I did have a 875w gold unit before this and if I was to OC the cards it with always OCP the psu.

Find out for yourself.

But you might wanna string two 1500w together. We all know how power hungry dem V64s are!

what you need to watch out for is those transient spikes.





these spikes can far exceed the PCIe spec (2×8pins = 300Watts) which some PSUs really hate.
Seasonic's Focus plus in particular have weak transient response, in which they actually fail to supply power to particular cards.

When it comes to AMD GPUs things are a bit more problematic.
Both of AMD's Vega 56 and Vega 64 series of graphics cards with serial numbers before January 2018, can experience system shutdowns when paired with a FOCUS PLUS power supply.
The issue is caused by higher than normal peak current being emitted by these graphics cards when under heavy load. This results in the power supply's internal protection safety being triggered.
Considering Seasonic's popularity the fact these power supplies are encountering problems is likely going to be a hit to their brand image.
At least they are stepping up to the plate having admitted to the problem while also investigating the root causes.
They are also encouraging anyone that is encountering issues to contact them for assistance.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

Damn, and I recently bought Focus Plus Gold 750W PSU. Had no idea about the issue

I was using a Seasonic X-1250 to do it reliably. You're going to need a lot.

well according to the threads in those forums, Seasonic has a solution by giving you cables with inline capacitors.
they also recommend using two different 8pin cables instead of using both pins of the 8+8pin cable it comes with.

If you're talking about single GPU then it's att least twice an overkill. 800W is a bare minimum he'd need for dual V64 (which I'd actually discourage to do) if he intended to undervolt both of cards, 1000W is already giving a nice overhead for overclocking. But he'll end up almost capping the PSU anyway.
