Intel is changing the future of power supplies with its ATX12VO spec

Source: Hacker News

Article note: I like it, it's basically removing redundant vregs and wiring the way machines are composed now. Will be a shame to lose the +5, but everywhere you use it might as well have an inexpensive separated vreg. The connector (10 pins, [PS_ON,Com,Com,Com,Reserved,Pwr_OK,+12SB,+12,+12,+12 sense] looks appropriate, though it looks in the spec like there is no marker (green stripe?) on the +12sense line to distinguish it from the ones that are supposed to carry current.
