    Default A Shocking Impervio unit

    http://www.effizienzgurus.de/main/in...article_id=697

    Tagan SuperRock 680W (TG680-U33II)

    It's a Tagan, but not a Topower. It's similar to the Olympia/Decathlon, but one of the two transformers is removed(left blank on the PCB), and you can see DC-DC VRMs on the secondary.

    FYI there's a THG roundup including this unit
    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...p,2062-13.html
    Pretty good efficiency thanks to the implementation of VRMs.
    It's been a hard day's night and I've been working like a dog.

    Yeah. Impervio, but somewhat different from existing Impervio models.

    Yes .. The platform is very similar, as I see in the Gabe's review of the OCZ EliteXStream 1000 W today

    So that is who it was that Tagan switched to.

    You mean... Impervio will take Topower's place as Tagan's main ODM provider?
    If so Tagan will be in my "interesting brand" list.

    Well not sure if they will be there primary since Tagan did launch the SilverPower brand in Europe with Enhance and Solytech units. Also IIRC Tagan was contractually obligated to use Topower for a set amount of time because Topower was part of the resources behind Tagan. I meant more of so that is who the Tagan rep was alluding to when they emailed me about these units.

    Ah well we don't get SilverPower here in the US so I missed those. I do still have an Enahnce SilverPower sitting here fully reviewed that I have never published because they never launched them here. Which sucks. Time and money down the crapper.
