    Default NZXT Launches E-Series PSUs

    NZXT today announces a new line of digital ATX PSUs designed to provide PC builders with real-time power monitoring and control. The E Series lineup includes 500W, 650W, and 850W models, all 80 PLUS Gold certified. For these PSUs, NZXT partnered with Seasonic, one of the most highly-regarded PSU manufacturers, and worked with them to enhance their Focus+ Gold platform and PMBus architecture, adding a powerful Texas Instruments DSP and USB connectivity.

    Hopefully this one has fixes for the incompatibility Seasonic has with the standard Focus series and some graphics cards. Because those have issues with the Asus Strix GTX 970, Vega 64 and probably more graphics cards. And ofcourse the 500W version should come with two cables or better modular connectors.

    The 500w comes with a single cable w/ 2 connectors, not sure on connector quality just yet, but I've asked an NZXT rep.

    I wonder how well tuned their DSP & CAM is? It would be rather interesting to see the results of that, especially for those consumers who don't realize just how little most of their PCs use as it even does a CPU / GPU breakdown apparently.

    The GPU one can't be all that accurate since there's no way for it to know how much is going via PCIe slot.

    It can make some assumptions based on how much current is being pulled through the 24pin cable as not much else on the board is gonna use the 12v.

    Still iffy as hell, 4-5 high speed fans could be pushing 2-3A +12VDC and the software will think it's all on the GPU...

    As for the cabling, the NZXT Rep is dodging the question of connector quality, so I believe that it'll just be the same as the normal focus Plus.

    Cool

    I Doubt I or a lot People care what it is that much anymore...Good to ok quality, Meets Hold up Time..Regulated well, and good Protection, PFC.

    IF you're using an NZXT Z370 then they can account for that in software as CAM does know about which fan headers have what on them. A PCIe slot should only be 6.25A max. So they could also assume that any current drawn from the 24pin cable after that isn't for the GPU, which would make full load scenarios more accurate.

    NZXT software is usualyl quite good. Still, this PSU is heavily overpriced. Corsair RMi ist considerably cheaper and also has nice software. Still, most people go for RMx instead.
