Enermax told us it'd be bringing out its PSU big guns at this year's CeBIT, and the early signs suggest that it won't disappoint.

Browsing the show floor a day before the doors officially open, we stumbled upon this; the EXX 900.

Positioned as the centrepiece to Enermax's surprisingly-large booth, the EXX 900 is the manufacturer's first power supply to be accredited with 80 PLUS Platinum certification.

According to the PSU's test data, the 900W prototype scores a whopping 91.07 per cent efficiency under light load, 92.51 per cent efficiency under typical load and an equally-impressive 90.12 per cent under full load.

Not a lot else is known right now - and Enermax wouldn't spill the beans until tomorrow - but we did get the most important (and most disappointing) detail; the EXX 900 most likely won't appear at retail until 2012. That'll provide plenty of shelf life for the MaxRevo, mind you.

Anyone know who makes Enermax PSUs?

I'd be really interested to see gold/platinum 400-500W PSUs. If you have a mid range PC (i.e. only one GPU) you would struggle to get past 300W even in games but PSUs are most efficient at around 50% capacity.

Enermax. Older models may be CWT or sirtec.
Just a small point - the article refers to the PSU as “EEX” on three occasions, but in the picture it has the letters “EXX” plastered all over the side of it. Oops?

Exactly what I was going to say!

+1 I've measured my beastliest machine at the wall using 200-300W at the absolute most when pushed hard, and that's probably lower for a new machine with mid range hardware (I'm thinking i5, GTX 560 ish).
