"Most high wattage power supplies are extremely inefficient when idle or running day-to-day office tasks", said John Malley, senior director of marketing for BFG Technologies. "Our exclusive Frequency Conversion Technology enables the EX-1200 to maintain at least 80% efficiency even when not being tasked with power intensive 3D games, and when the system is idle it uses approximately one fourth of the power that it would during gaming. That means real energy savings for the customer and a greener environment for everyone."
