    I like the specs, if it shows as a good performer, it has chance to shake the european market once again. What looks like gold is actualy 80 PLUS Gold 230 V EU=equals=Platinum @115 V. Fully modular with 5year waranty, Chemi-Con caps mostly. Nice fan curve.

    Looks like a Great Wall with LLC resonant converter design and DC-DC.

    In Germany those PSU aren't available. They need to work on distribution, otherwise their brand will stay limited to eastern Europe. Let's wait for the reviews first however, if it's even worth considering to buy one...

    Huh? I though that when on 230V PSUs are more efficient than on 115V. Do I have it reversed, is 110V more efficient than 220V?

    It's already getting slowly discontinued in Poland - SPC has released Supremo L2 and M2, based on a design copycatted from Great Wall's Corsair CS platform, but built by SAMA.

    Yes, but not Great Wall - it's a design copied from ATNG ATM G v1.7 built by a different OEM/factory. SilentiumPC themselves say it's "an OEM specialising in server PSUs", but don't tell which.

    The same PSU on 220V is more efficient than when on 110V, but only when the load is higher, even with titanium rated PSUs. This graph is actually from Aris's most recent review (silverstone ST80F-TI)

    No you're right, he just describes it a bit strange.

    A PSU with 80PLUS Gold needs to be 87%, 90% and 87% efficient by 20, 50 and 100% load. If you would test a PSU like that on 230V the efficiency wil be a bit higher normally, especially on 50% and 100% load.

    That is also why the requirements of 80PLUS Gold 230V EU are higher with 90, 92 an 89% efficiency with 20, 50 and 100% load. Those efficiency numbers are the same as 80PLUS Platinum, but if this PSU had a universal input the efficiency would be more like 80PLUS Gold, because efficiency goes down on 115V.

    So saying that 80PLUS Gold 230V EU equals 80PLUS Platinum is just wrong, it's more like 80PLUS Gold 230V EU equals 80PLUS Gold.
