    Default Interview with Doug from PCP&C

    http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/200...-doug-dodson/1

    BT: How do you expect the PSU to evolve in the next three to five years considering the push to greener, more efficient computing? (Personally we believe PSUs will become more of a commodity product so in the future there will be an emphasis on price and features rather than component quality).

    DD: I expect a major change. There will be only one DC output: +12 Volts. The +3.3V, +5V, and -12V outputs will be eliminated in the future. This will make the PSU more efficient, since +12 Volts is the most efficient output, and of course it will make the PSU simpler and less expensive.
    I didn't see this on the site anywhere, and figured this is right up Jonny's alley as far as hardware news goes.

    DD: No. Our decision was based solely on the engineering merits. We had never even heard of Ultra.

    He's full of BS, being the CEO of PCP&C and trying to claim that he's never heard of Ultra is akin to the CEO of GM saying he's never heard of Daihatsu or KIA. You can't be in charge of a PSU firm and not be aware of what your competitors are doing let alone not know who they are.

    I saw this the other day but didn't post it as news because its not news, although Doug is a smart guy and it's intersting to hear what he has to say.

    I liked the one response in the comments: "never heard of Ultra my ass". I have to believe Doug does know of them now, even if he hadn't heard of them before, because his boss is named as a defendant in a patent infringement suit.

    Aint this BS or what?

    BT: bit-tech has been historically geared toward PC modding and I have to admit we've been very tempted to do a "modularising a PCP&C PSU" (a mainstream Silencer) article for a while.

    DD: Actually, we do have a modular design without the normal drawbacks. We may make it a commercial product one day!!!

    BT: Really? Can you tell us anymore?

    DD: The modular designs we have in mind involve connectors with far more surface area and much more secure fastening than the connectors used by other PSU manufacturers. There'll be no voltage drop or reliability problems like there is with those flimsy, low amperage connectors.
    Software readings are crap.

    Why does everyone interview Doug Dobson, as if he is THE Authority of SMPSs?

    Or is it the fact that he actively requests interviews to spread his nonsense?

    I wish an engineer from another well known manufactuer would come out and call his bluff.

    Not sure how that works.

    I'm in Santa Clara visiting Nvidia right now and guess what? Doug is here as a guest speaker to tell us all about ESA. eh?

    Face it... he's a celebrity of sorts. Know what Nvidia has to say about jonnyGURU? "Jonnyguru? I mean, really???" LOL!

    Is that supposed to mean, you need no introduction? Or is that supposed to mean you are as welcome there at Jack Thompson is at Quakecon?
