We first played with Seasonic's new line of Focus Plus units back in July when the 750 watt model came in with modest promises and promptly proceeded to knock our socks off with the performance we've come to expect from much more expensive units. Today, we'll look at the 550 watt unit and see if we can expect more of the same from the rest of the line. This should be good.
We first looked at Corsair's new and improved TX-M units back in early June, when we discovered quickly that this company still means business when it comes to decent power supplies at a good price. Now, we're looking at the 750 watt model.
EVGA has a new line of units out to give all of you budget minded folks a helping hand - the B3 line. These units are fully modular and 80 Plus Bronze, raising hopes within yours truly that we'll get some pretty sweet performance to back up the otherwise budget oriented efficiency level. Let's see what the 750 watt model is all about.
We first took a look at BeQuiet's new budget line of semi-modular units back in May, when we found their Pure Power 10 600W unit doing some really impressive things for not much money. Today, we're looking at the 500W model to see if we can expect more of the same from other units in the range.
We're back in the world of Seasonic once again with a brand new product from them. Today, it'll be the Focus Plus 750 watt Gold unit, a fully modular offering for the budget minded enthusiast crowd. Let's see what happens.
Come with me into the land of power supplies once again as we set sail into Corsair's domain. Today, we'll be looking at the HX1200, a near top of the line 80 Plus Platinum unit that looks to compete with the best in the market.
Cougar is a name we haven't seen in a little while, but they are still out there offering power supplies to the computing public. We're looking at one of the new revised units in the GX-S line today, a 650 watt model that offers 80 Plus Gold efficiency at an attractive price.
It's always exciting when a new name comes to the lab with a power supply I perhaps haven't seen before. Today, we're looking at a unit called the Continuum 1050 watt from a Hungarian brand named Kolink. While not currently available in North America, it could be the performance of this unit is good enough to warrant our attention on this side of the pond.
Once upon a time, a company by the name of Corsair made a splash in the power supply world by releasing a line of popular units known as the TX series. These were fifty degree temp rated workhorses that, while not anything too special, were just special enough to be very popular among those needing decent enthusiast level performance on the cheap. A lot of people were disappointed when the TX line went away. But now, they're back. Are they as good as they used to be? We shall find out.
