Super Flower Unveils the World's First Consumer 80+ Titanium PSU

Prominently featured at Super Flower’s booth at Computex 2013 is the Leadex Platinum 1000 W, a fully-modular power supply unit that is certified as 80 Plus Platinum and provides a power efficiency of 94 percent at 20 percent load, 96 percent at 50 percent load, and 91 percent at 100 percent load.

Aside from the Leadex Platinum’s staggering performance, it’s worth noting that it is perhaps the first consumer PSU that has achieved a certification that has previously only be held by server grade units.

    I thought there were some 80+ platinum PSU on the market already no? Corsair AX series are all modular and are all 80+ platinum for example.

  • The Platinum certified Super Flower units based on the Golden King platform are generally excellent. This one should be as well. Good to see someone keeping Seasonic on their toes!

    There is more than a dozen "mainstream" Platinum PSUs out there so if SuperFlower claims to be the *first* consumerized product in a new efficiency class, it would have to be Titanium.

    wonder how much it'll cost, and whether it further minimizes ripples etc.
    honestly moving from gold to platinum and now to Titanium probably will never giving you significant savings on the electric bill. so it'll come down to quality and pricing. and of course, marketing

    For the most part, the biggest advantage is less heat generation.
    Perhaps PSU efficiency is becoming a new braggable spec?
    Realistically, the difference between PSU efficiency will make negligible affect on your power bill unless you are dealing with garbage <75% eff. supplies.

    That's not bad for a 1000w PSU. When you are running SLI or Crossfire and maxed out hardware, you can pay allot of money for wasted power over the year. I wonder what components they used and who manufactured them. Making high efficiency PSU is not easy. I can't wait for the 1200W titanium PSU to show up next. Maybe in a couple years.

  • This power supply is "Titanium" certified on 220-230VAC. It's only Platinum on 100-120VAC. Still only 8 server power supplies had ever received the Titanium level before this model.
