Antec introduces its new High Current power supplies on video

By: Cameron Wilmot | More News: Cases, Cooling & PSU | Posted: Nov 12, 2010 2:10 pm

Today we visited the Antec offices here in Taipei, Taiwan and were introduced to their range of new "High Current" power supplies which were only just announced a couple of days ago.

 

Christoph Katzer, Antec's Power Supply Marketing Manager, was on hand to give us a solid run-down of the new High Current Pro and High Current Gamer power supplies that started shipping this week.

 

 

The High Current Pro is at the top-end of Antec's range and comes with 80 Plus Gold certification and in a range of sizes from 1200-watts down. We also got a look and unboxing of the High Current Gamer PSU series which is more affordable. They come in five different wattages all the way up to 900-watts and lack cable management on the rear of the PSU which helps cut costs down. Chris commented that roughly half of Antec's PSU business is units without cable management.

 

Both the Pro and Gamer series power supplies feature Antec Continuous Power which is something all PSUs on the market should really to be honest. Continuous Power means that if say you buy a 500-watt power supply from Antec, it will actually operate at 500-watts and won't just sometimes peak at 500-watts like cheap power supplies that main really only offer reliable power at around 300-watts. Watch the video above for more.

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices | Posted: Nov 12, 2010 4:56 am

Engadget have a sexy pic of Samsung's Orion chip - a dual-core 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 CPU and a quad-core Mali 400 GPU on-board.

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17534_232.jpg

 

It was spotted at the ARM Technology Conference, running "Linaro" Linux middleware - as well as stock Android 2.2 - obviously at the moment it's early days, these are simple development boards, so they couldn't be shown off, or flexing their muscles through testing, etc.

Facebook breaks ground on $450 million data center

By: Don Lynn | More News: Business, Financial & Legal | Posted: Nov 12, 2010 1:19 am

When you've become an internet giant, having just one facility in the works just won't do anymore. While they still haven't finished building their first data center currently under construction in Oregon, Facebook has announced today they will be building a $450 million data center in Rutherford, North Carolina as well.

 

TweakTown image news/1/7/17523_001.jpg

 

That's right, Facebook will be on both coasts. The North Carolina project is expected to take about 18 months to finish once it is started and will employ 35-45 workers. Facebook has even planned for expansion, with the release also noting that "additional construction phases may be possible in the future, depending on business needs." North Carolina is quickly becoming a tech haven for the U.S., with Apple's 1 billion dollar facility almost finished there as well as Google and IBM's data centers already at work.
