    Default Riotoro Emerges With New PSUs, Ghostwriter Keyboards And Bifröst Cooler

    http://www.tomshardware.com/news/rio...ler,31916.html

    Riotoro announced today the expansion of its PC hardware line with the addition of three new categories: gaming keyboards, PSUs, and liquid CPU coolers. These join the company's PC cases, mice, and fans.

    Riotoro is a gaming gear company, created by former employees of other large companies (eg, Corsair and Nvidia).
    Onyx And Enigma PSUs

    Riotoro also has a PSU. The company cooperated with Great Wall (which is behind Corsair's CSM and SF models) on Onyx and Enigma. Riotoro said these units will be based on a new platform, designed to hit the sweet spot for practical real-world performance, reliability and price.

    The Onyx line consists of three Bronze members with 450W, 650W and 750W capacities; semi-modular cabling; and 100% Japanese primary (APFC/bulk capacitors). The Onyx PSUs use rifle bearing fans and come with a 3-year warranty.

    The Enigma line counts only one member with 80 PLUS Gold efficiency and 750W capacity. It also features a semi-modular cabling design and 100% Japanese primary capacitors. It uses a hydro dynamic bearing (HDB) fan and comes with a 5-year warranty.
    First time I hear about that brand.
    They have high hopes for themselves:
    The RIOTORO team is a crew of people like yourself who have lived and breathed nothing but PC Components their entire career. We’ve worked for the biggest brands in the industry and found a number of things we didn’t feel were right.

    Well, Corsair did good, so maybe Riotoro might copy their sucees also. However with simple copies of existing PSU nobodygot ever rich. The market is competitive, much more than 10 years ago.

    Also the name is quite long but hasn't any meaning.

    They did say their PSUs will be based on a new platform, so it may not be just a copy.

    I guess it's supposed to be something like "Rio Bull", since toro means bull in spanish and that's the language they have been using all the time on their Facebook - and the logo looks like a bull too.

    Rio = River

    Toro = Bull

    Not saying it makes sense... just saying it's not made up words.
