Thermaltake Toughpower DPS G RGB Titanium PSU Line Gets Three New Members

Up to now, Thermaltake's flagship PSU offering was the Toughpower DPS G RGB 1250W Titanium model (our review here), which was released during CES 2016. Now, Thermaltake has announced the release of three new DPS G RGB Titanium models, with 850W, 1 kW and 1.5 kW capacities.

Like the existing member of this line, the new ones will be equipped with a silent 140mm RGB fan, and according to Tt, they will use only Japanese caps, with the electrolytic ones rated at 105°C. In addition, a fully modular cabling design is utilized, and a digital board will be installed, with a 32-bit MCU that will be sourced by STMicroelectronics.

We should add here that the TPG-1250D-T uses a CWT platform, with model number CST, and it is equipped with a couple of MCUs provided by Microchip and Texas Instruments. Therefore, the announcement that the new models of this line will use a different MCU means that Tt used another OEM for the new units, which we suspect is Enhance Electronics. We can't be certain until we have a TPG-1500D-T sample in hand,but a photo of this unit's internals from the product's official page shows the typical Enhance heatsinks with the long fins. The corresponding photos on the pages of the TPG-850D-T and TPG-1000D-T models also provide signs that Enhance Electronics is their original manufacturer.

All Toughpower DPS G RGB Titanium models are covered by a hefty ten-year warranty, evincing Tt's confidence in them. In addition, they fully support the Smart Power Management (SPM) Platform, which in essence is a cloud service that allows the monitoring and the analyzing of the system's energy consumption.

Through this service, users can also receive alerts should something go wrong with the PSU and remotely shut down the system to prevent any damage, all through the DPS G Mobile App, which is available for Android and iOS smart devices. Besides the ability to remotely turn off the system, users can also schedule a shutdown or reboot their PC through their mobile devices.

The dimensions of the lower-capacity models are pretty large, because all members of this line use the same chassis. In any case, you should check whether your system's enclosure is able to accommodate such long PSUs before you opt to buy one.

    I like the concept of RGB fans on a PSU, especially if it does use the customizable RIING fans, but why would it be needed on a component where most of its intended market (high end) tucks it under their PSU cover that comes included with most high end cases or buy their own, or don't care about looks and want it for its wattage.
