Computex 2016: LEPA's Computex Lineup Includes New PSUs
LEPA introduced two new MAXTYTAN PSUs at Computex. Both are 80 PLUS Titanium certified and address totally different market segments. The high-end MAXTYTAN unit has 1250W max power and features a fully modular cabling design, whereas the smaller member of this family only has 500W capacity and doesn't feature any modular cables, in order to keep production costs down. The MSRP of the MAXTYTAN 1250W is set at $390, and the 500W model has a suggested retail price of 160 bucks, which looks rather stiff, actually, especially if you take into account that this unit isn't equipped with any modular cables.
LEPA's VR Gold PSU line consists of three Gold members with capacities ranging from 500W to 700W. The MSRPs of the 500W, 600W and 700W units are $75, 85$ and $95, respectively. All units support LEPA's Variable Resistor (VR) design that allows the adjustment of the fan's speed through a turbo switch. This is a feature that we haven't encountered for quite some time now, and most likely such a feature doesn't address the majority of users who prefer to adjust the fan profile through software (in digitally controlled PSUs).
