Antec have just added a new flagship chassis to their lineup of server/enthusiast level cases, this to stand over the top of the already beastly P180 as the new "P190" model.
Some of its many features include the option of a "Neo-Link" Dual 1200W PSU, five case fans including a massive side-mounted 200mm one, and stacks of sound-deadening materials.
For more info on it, grab the press release folks.
CES, Las Vegas, NV - January 9, 2007 - Antec, Inc., the leading global brand of high-performance computer components for the PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, has released P190. The case is Antec's most powerful yet with dual power supplies, and is based on the proven design concepts first introduced in their P180.
P190 is fueled by Antec's new dual power supply, the 1200 Watt Neo-Link. The spacious interior and extended ATX capabilities allow for multiple instances of virtually all system components. The 650 Watt and 550 Watt power supplies work together to power parts such as multiple core CPUs, multi card graphics solutions and 10,000+ RPM hard drives.
Good god! PSU manufacturer Ultra Products have also let everyone know in advance that they will be making their presence known at CES in a big way, all because of one PSU.... Whats so special about it you say? It boasts a *MASSIVE* 2000W of power thats what!!!
If you feel the need to have a nuclear reactor in your gaming case, the 2000W ATX Power Supply from Ultra Products should be enough for you. Being unveiled at CES, the 2000W PS is modular, and feeds up to 1800W on the 12V connection alone.
With all that power, you're going to be able to support quad core, quad GPU cards, or a gigantic RAID system to store all your homemade movies. No word on price, but we're guessing somewhere around the PlayStation 3's price tag.
After some SERIOUS power for your kickarse new rig? Where the sky's the limit, Silverstone are doing their best to reach it with their new monster PSU, the 1kW Olympia.
In terms of specs, this thing is pretty damn meaty with an intelligent fan controller for quiet operation (25 dBA @300W or below, 42dBA@ 1000W), a massive single 80A(88A peak) +12V rail and 1100W peak power output. The Olympia OP1000 features 4x PCI-E 6pin connectors, dual 8pin connectors, six Serial ATA connectors, Active PFC and support for ATX 12V 2.2 & EPS 12V.
For SilverStone, reaching the 1000 watt milestone is another great opportunity to introduce a new direction for performance enthusiast power supplies. The Olympia OP1000 was built to withstand enormous loading requirements of high-end industrial server PCs at above average temperature of 50°C so its ability is unmatched by ordinary power supplies. However, to make this power supply more usable to more enthusiasts, SilverStone engineers altered several parameters such as inclusion of intelligent fan controller that adjust fan speed to run quietly at low to medium load and conversion to a single +12V rail. If the goal is to build a future proof multi-core CPU and GPU system, the OP1000 is a must have with its 80A ( 88A peak) +12V single rail and 1100W peak power output.
