Corsair Launches a New 80Plus Gold Series of PSUs

Corsair is to start selling its newest series of power supply units, entitled Corsair CS. The series embraces four models of 450W, 550W, 650W, and 750W power, which feature some outstanding 92% efficiency. Small wonder that such models have already won 80Plus Gold certificates that verify their high-end membership. All the units correspond to the ATX specifications and support the latest Intel’s and AMD’s platforms. Besides, CS series is differentiated by a power-saving design combined with a tolerant price.



Corsair CS units are equipped with a semi-modular cable system. Main 24-contact ATX power and 8-contact EPS motherboard cables have got a static fixture, whereas flat modular cables come in the delivery set and are predestined to power HDD/SSD, graphics cards, fans, etc. Cooling is provided by 120 mm fan, based on a slide bearing; it runs at low speeds on standard loads, producing little noise during routine tasks. Its estimated MTBF equals to 150.000 hours.

ASMedia to Introduce USB 3.5 Controllers in 2014

ASMedia, an auspicious designer of PCIe bridges, USB 3.0 controllers and Switch IC items, announces the development of a new USB 3.5 controller. According to the preliminary information, this controller is going to support 10 Gb/sec data transfer speed, which is nearly twice higher than current USB 3.0. Earlier the launch of an advanced component was scheduled for late 2014, however, now the company is intended to officially introduce it early next year.



The decision to elaborate a speedier controller is explained by ASMedia in two ways. Firstly, the company is currently receiving more orders from motherboard manufacturers for the development of USB 3.0 hubs, due to the recent launch of Intel Haswell CPUs. Nonetheless, an enforcement of platform will sooner or later require an enforcement of various facilities, including connectivity and data transfer.


Secondly, USB 3.5 is called to rival Thunderbolt interface. It should be stressed that both interfaces feature analogous …

Platinum PSU FSP Aurum 92+ 650W Review

Up-to-date power supply units are able to achieve 80-90% efficiency due to 80 Plus standard. The integration of this standard provides for better power-saving facilities, heat level and noise level. Still, some customers give preference to performance rather than energy saving; thus PSUs from FSP will become the most wise solution for such people. Last year FSP introduced Aurum series and today the company expands the line with a new model — Aurum 92+. The model is represented so far with a single power variation – 650W, and corresponds to 80 Plus Platinum requirements.



General Peculiarities


Correspondence to Platinum standards implies that FSP Aurum 92+ unit should demonstrate not less than 91% nominal efficiency, 90% efficiency at 20 percent loading, and 94% efficiency at 50 percent loading. Testing results prove the claimed characteristics, making this model a desirable high-end acquirement. Aurum 92+ is delivered in a standard cardbox that contains FSP logo …
