NZXT to Launch a New Line of Powerful PSUs

Developers from NZXT decided to revive a series of prime power supply units, codenamed HALE90, launched in 2010 by designing a new line of powerful units. The line has been entitled HALE90 V2 and includes three models of 850W, 1000W, and 1200W power. All three models are notable by the availability of 80Plus Gold certificate that verifies their high-performance and reliability.

Unlike the majority of similar products, HALE90 V2 are housed in casings of white color with black insertions that add some elegance to the overall design. The units are characterized by a totally modular cabling (including 24-pin ATX connector); this is called to dramatically simplify the accomplishment of individual wire sheath on modding. One of the peculiarities of this PSU line is rigid connection of the mainboard with the cable board, while the majority of rival PSUs employ flexible wires.

Voltage 12V generation is realized by means of a single rail. The platform is developed according to …

Haswell processors for laptops will consume up to 57 W, desktop - up to 100

Intel provides with three graphics levels: GT1, GT2 and GT3. Desktop processors won’t receive graphics performance higher than GT2, but mobile processors will be able to boast of with GT3 class. Support of PCI Express 3.0 for Haswell processors will be quite usual characteristics, but at the memory controller little progress is seen — yet provides dual-channel DDR3-1600.

By energy consumption Haswell desktop versions will be divided into models with values of 35, 45, 65 and 95 watts of TDP level. For mobile processors the values are ​​37, 47 and 57 W. Finally, ultra book processors with built-in system logic will be filled by TDP level not more than 15 watts. It is assumed that this will enable them, among other things, be in standby mode up to 10 days without charge.

The desire of Intel to compete with AMD in terms of performance integrated in graphics processor, will add some work to companies producing cooling systems for laptops. The developers report about …

Deepcool Unveils Plans for Quanta DQ Power Supply Units

Deepcool Industries Co. Ltd., is about to launch a couple of new power supply units, codenamed Quanta DQ1000 and Quanta DQ1250. Both models feature 150x200x86 mm dimensions and come with a semi-modular design (24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS cables are non-detachable). As seen from the codenames, they offer 1000 W and 1250 W power that is quite enough to energize the most demanding gaming systems.

PSU Deepcool Quanta DQ1000 might boast the availability of 80 Plus Gold certificate, due to 92% efficiency level. This unit comes with a single +12V rail, which produces up to 999 W power at 83.3 A current. In its turn, Quanta DQ1250 has got 80 Plus Platinum certificate, since it is able to demonstrate up to 94% efficiency at the highest loading. Unlike its companion, this model houses two +12V rails with 45 A and 65 A current for both.

The list of detachable cables includes eight SATA, three Molex, one Berg, and four 8-pin PCI Express. All the cables might be neatly managed on the …
