Recently we got Power Supply Unit Test Plans from @momomo_us. Power Supply Unit Test Plans are basically blueprints for the motherboard and power supply manufacturers to prepare for the upcoming Intel Core series processors.
The documents directly mention the intel upcoming 11th Gen Core series desktop CPUs, which in this context means Rocket Lake-S (desktop processor series) and Alder Lake-S processors.
The Intel Test Plan Tables are used for two main purposes. The first purpose is to show what loading criteria of what Intel uses for these four sizes of power supplies as part of this Test Plan. This leads to the second purpose of the tables, these are recommended loading values between the six voltage rails of an ATX Power Supply at these total power levels.
The test plans are divided into 300W, 350W, 400W, and 450W groups (higher wattage PSUs specs should reflect the 450W group). A quick comparison between the 10th, 11th, and 12th Gen processors to 8th and 9th Gen tables appears to confirm that newer recommendations are more strict.
