XFX To Introduce Power Supply Line Soon - 850W Black Edition

Postby Apoptosis » Fri May 22, 2009 5:48 pm

XFX, one of the world's largest video card manufacturers, is getting ready to announce their very first power supply line at Computex Taipei 2009 next month. Details have emerged on the XFX 850W Black Edition power supply, which features one single +12V rail with a massive 70Amp/840W rating. The power supply is modular as you can see in the image below and is 80 plus silver certified, since it is 88% efficient. No word on pricing yet, but it looks like the power supply market just got a little more crowded.

For some reason, I have a feeling that they're based on the upcoming Corsair HX850.
Intel Core i5-3570K @ 4.2Ghz @ 1.16V (CPU-Z + LinX)
Gigabyte Z77X-UD5H F14 BIOS
ASUS GTX 460 768MB @ 800/1950
Kingston HyperX DDR3 8GB @ DDR-1333

If they can build a unit that is truly worthy of the "80 Plus Silver Certified" claim. And sell it for a reasonable price. Then I would be interested. Still I'll probably spring for an Enermax Revolution 1050W, since I'm certain that is a "high efficiency" unit.

Not crazy about the color. If it were red or blue maybe, but Sprite Yellow/Green? Nah

Looks crazy. Too bad you don't really see the PSU in a computer much.
