    you know... all these "PSUs are ready for haswell" is getting kinda retarded.... why would it have been a problem in the first place?

    It's just a sales pitch to make people believe they need something they really don't, that's all.

    It's kind of the opposite tbh. The Haswell design can put loads on the PSU that aren't expected so can cause the protection circuit to kick in. By listing those PSUs that won't exhibit this behaviour, you can see if you do need a new PSU. My Corsair PSU for example is one of the ones they list as being compatible, so if I do go Haswell I have no need to buy a new one.

    Elaborate, please? The power requirements won't be any higher than on the current CPUs. I don't know how they could trigger the protection mechanism, except unless they will perhaps cause some more sudden and violent "jerks" in current draw than what we have now. I'm not sure how or why they'd do that, though.

    That's interesting, thanks for the info.

    It's good that sleep state power draw is getting smaller, but I don't know that there's been an update to the ATX standard that adds this requirement, so, from that standpoint, it's not something that I appreciate.
