Antec is pleased to announce the development of a new digital power supply series called the "High Current Pro Platinum GRIDTM" ("HCPP GRIDTM") and is today showcasing prototypes at the Computex trade show in Taipei, Taiwan.
Scheduled for release in Q4 of 2013, the High Current Pro Platinum GRIDTM series will be engineered on a totally new platform utilizing digital PM Bus/I2C technology and a custom developed software which allows users to take control of the PSU on an array of operating systems which include Microsoft 32-bit & 64-bit Windows platforms 8 (Desktop), 7, Vista® & XP.
The High Current Pro Platinum GRIDTM series will consist of an 850W model (HCP-850 Platinum GRID) and a 1200W model (HCP-1200 Platinum GRID). Both models will have mostly similar features like their HCP Platinum main series siblings, except for the GRIDTM PSU control software & digital technology, which replaces the OC LinkTM along with a white LED double ball bearing fan with on/off function.
It goes without saying that the remaining features are state-of-the-art as well. Not only does the High Current Pro Platinum GRIDTM series feature a fully modular design, but it also includes cutting-edge and patented 16-pin sockets as well as a 20+8-pin MBU socket for the needs of tomorrow.
Features & specifications include:
- 80 PLUS® PLATINUM certified efficiency,
- 7 years of Antec's renowned warranty and lifetime global support.
- All Japanese heavy-duty capacitors;
- Engineered to run at 50°C without compromises on safety
- Triple rail design
- Protected 9-fold by the CircuitShieldTM IC.
Antec takes pride in developing GRIDTM as the first truly user-friendly PSU control software. It avoids mindless writes to the hard drive and is neither using APIs or DLLs, which would cause crashes while running many contemporary games or RAID arrays.
Stay tuned for more updates on the development of HCP Platinum GRIDTM" throughout the year.
