The VRM is in a 10+2 phase configuration. Each of the CPU and iGPU phases utilizes a dual N-channel SinoPower SM7341EH 25A MOSFET and a high current inductor. The main PWM controller is the UPI Semiconductor UP9521 in 5+2 phase mode.

Each of the five phases goes to a UP1965 driver, which them outputs to two power stages. The two phases for the iGPU phases use UP1962 drivers. The memory VRM is a large single phase set up as two phases and is controlled by a Richtek RT8120.
