The RMe series is more affordable than the RMx line, offering in its newest revision ATX v3.0 and PCIe 5.0 compatibility. The RM1000e uses an efficient platform and it also has a silent operation. Performance wise, don’t expect it to be close to the RMx line, because this would create internal competition.
Corsair’s RMe line with ATX v3.0 and PCIe 5.0 compatibility makes its debut today. This line has three members with 750W, 850W, and 1000W max power. All feature 12VHPWR connectors, which can handle NVIDIA’s newest GPU offerings. The RMe line is taxed below the RMx (Shift) one in terms of performance and price, and this is why Corsair used a different OEM for these models, HEC, while CWT makes the higher-end models. All RMe units have a single 12V rail, which is what most users prefer for quite some time now, and the retail prices are $140 for the 750W model, $170 for the RM850e, and $242 for the RM1000e. Typically, the street prices will be lower than the MSRP ones. For example, I found the RM1000e at $171 on Amazon, a huge difference from the MSRP. Corsair uses the “2023” prefix for the new RMe units to distinguish them from the older version. Another way to distinguish the new model is the Cybenetics badge at the face of the box!
