The news has fallen from almost nothing in recent days on the web by surprise leaving it in the air because the matter had not yet been brought to the attention of Intel. In detail, we speak of the states C6 and C7, two operating conditions in which the CPU operates under high energy savings that now requires a level of current that did not appear in the specifications of ATX12V v2.3.

The energy demands of Haswell for C6/C7 states now require a minimum current of 0.05 A, a value significantly lower from the 0.5 A required by the standard. But what does it mean in practical terms? On the one hand a good number of feeders, especially those of quality, will not have any problem. Enermax for example, one of the leaders in the industry, has already declared that all of its medium and high end models including the deprecated ones will have no problem with Haswell.
