Within the wake of very public examples of two of their energy provide models failing spectacularly, Gigabyte have supplied replacements to anybody affected, whereas concurrently casting doubt on the methodology utilized by these elevating the problem within the first place.

In an announcement issued on the corporate’s website, Gigabyte provides a proof as to what’s happening—two energy provide fashions, the GP-P850GM and GP-P750GM, have been discovered useless on arrival or sparking themselves to demise—saying “there can often be situations the place the height wattage can exceed the meant utilization vary”.

GIGABYTE, appreciates and takes into consideration any suggestions and recommendations from our media companions and PC {hardware} professionals. We had been made conscious by third events of issues concerning potential problems with the GP-P850GM and GP-P750GM tripping at excessive wattages when examined by way of DC Digital Load gear for prolonged lengths of time repeatedly near the 120% to 150% OPP set off level.
