Nexus Reveals its RX-8500 850W 2013 Edition PSU

Nexus, a Dutch manufacturer of various computer components, has announced its RX-8500 2013 edition power supply. The unit, which has a single 12 V rail design, is capable of putting out up to 850 W and is rated by the manufacturer to be 85 percent efficient. That said, it doesn't carry any form of 80-Plus certificate. The 12 V rail is capable of pushing through 64 A and also features active PFC.

The unit has partially modular cabling: the most commonly used cables, including the 24-pin ATX cable, the 8-pin EPS connector, as well as two 6+2-pin PCIe fixed connectors. The rest of the cables are all removable. Included are two ribbons with three SATA connectors, as well as another two ribbons with three Molex connectors and one floppy connector.

To cool the unit, Nexus has opted to fit it with a silence-optimized 135 mm fan. The fan also has silence-optimized fan curve.

The company did not reveal any information on pricing, nor did it indicate when the unit would be available. That said, we think it's safe to assume that the unit will be released in 2013; otherwise, it would be called the 2014 edition.

    Oh no it's not(?) Haswell certified, so it's worthless... oh wait, add a fan or two or a hard drive to maintain a light load when the CPU is in a deep sleep and then it doesn't matter
