Enermax Shows 80 Plus Platinum 'Platimax' PSUs

Components are a big part of Computex, which is really just heaven for those who build their own computers. Enermax was there to display its newest power supply units, which all reach the 80 Plus Platinum mark as part of the company's Platimax line.

These PSUs reach an efficiency at half load up to 92 percent. The Platimax will be available in 600, 750, 900 and 1200 watts configurations, with the most powerful model having completely modular cable design.

No pricing yet, but we're told that the high-end models will be available in July, while in more modest versions will follow in subsequent months.

  • Knowing Enermax's track record quite well, this will probably be yet another absolutely kick ass PSU, albeit very expensive. Technology progresses so quickly. Back when I purchased the Modu87+ I'm currently using, it was pretty much the most efficient PSU on the market, and certainly one of the best designed. And now only about a year later we have 80+ Platinum PSU's coming to market.

    I have a 460w Enermax PSU I bought in 2004 that is still running great. It's outlived all the other components from two different builds. I don't think Enermax prices are that much more than other high-quality brands, but I have seen enough problems caused by bad PSUs that I wouldn't buy anything less.
