Best Power Supply for Rtx 2080 – Our top pick is the Corsair AX Series AX1600i power supply unit. It has all the features you need at an affordable price.

But every power supply unit on this list can hold up to the new NVIDIA RTX 2080 Ti graphic card.

1.EVGA 220-G3-0750-X1

EVGA SuperNOVA power supplies are well known for their extreme efficiency, performance and reliability. In fact, over the last 3 years EVGA SuperNOVA power supplies have won over 70 awards from leading review sites. It is EVGA�s dedication to performance that has created the latest power supply platform; the EVGA SuperNOVA G3 Series.

With these new power supplies, we take the best features from our award winning G2 lineup and makes them even better. A smaller size, improved performance and a new Hydraulic Dynamic Bearing fan giving you ultra-quiet performance at an increased lifespan.

2.Raidmax Hybrid 730W

Any PC enthusiast and gamer knows that having the right amount of power for their rig is one of the most important aspects of a stable system. Raidmax presents the HYBRID 2 RX-730SS power supply that pumps 730W to vital peripherals, like advanced video cards. Not only does it perform well, but it looks great too with its durable black satin finish and stained black SECC steel.

Multi video card setups are also accommodated by dual 6pin PCI-E connectors, one of which can be modulated up to 8pins. For your convenience, two 8pin to 6pin PCI-E converters are included in the box. You’ll also enjoy having four SATA power connectors for all of your storage devices. The power supply’s modular design maximizes air flow by allowing you to connect only the cables you need.

3.Antec HCG1000

Antec’s 1000W High Current Gamer Extreme power supply is a feast for the eyes. Its gold and glossy finish are unlike anything we’ve seen before. Under the hood, Antec utilizes a Seasonic Focus Plus Gold platform, so we already know that this PSU serves up high performance and long-term reliability.

We hoped that an Extreme descriptor would indicate Seasonic’s higher-end Prime platform. But we’re also glad to see such a capable model selling for $150, and a Prime-based version would have cost a lot more.

4.Seasonic FOCUS 650

The Seasonic FOCUS SGX-650 power supply showed impressive results. Firstly, it remains quiet even at loads up to 75%. Secondly, it offers over 90% efficiency. The fan does its job very well, especially if you consider that the package is very compact.

The 80 Plus Gold certificate is the best price compromise for typical use (not 24/7), so in fact you don’t really need to look for an offer with a higher certificate (realistically speaking).

5.Corsair RM Series

The Corsair RM650 has high performance in almost all areas and it is dead silent. Its only major downside seems to be the small price difference with the RM650x, which has better capacitors and a higher quality fan. Nonetheless, the RM650 scores higher efficiency under super-light loads and it also supports Windows 10’s Modern Standby mode.

If the price difference with the RM650x is close to 20 dollars (16 pounds) then the RM650 is a good deal, but with only 10 dollars (8  pounds) difference it will be a tough sale.


Best Power Supply for Rtx 2080 – The new NVIDIA graphics card is a tough cookie. And it needs a high watt power supply unit to keep it running smoothly. Its super-speed takes a lot of wattage to keep up with it.

But finding an appropriate power supply unit isn’t as simple as it sounds. There are many factors to consider, including knowing the RTX 2080 power needs from idle to max usage. A common misconception is that power supplies are using a constanst amount of energy. The reality is that their consumption is low when doing minor tasks like reading this article, and huge when playing a graphics-intensive game at max settings.

Since the actual max usage can differ from the manufacturer’s published number, Tom’s Hardware investigated the actual wattage needed for the 2080Ti. They found it consumes about 17W at idle, but up to a max peak of 360W. Given this, and the typical needs from your other components, I’d recommend a minimum of a 600W power supply. I’m a definite believer in not cheapening out on your power supply (I have a 750W Gold PSU to power my own PC where I run a 1070ti), so personally, I’d buy a minimum of 750W.
