Over the past five to six years, the name XFX has become synonymous with enthusiasts and for many good reasons. XFX made a huge push during the era of the NVIDIA 6xxx and 7xxx series cards and were always pushing the limits of the clock speeds. This gave them some of the fastest cards on the market and enthusiasts naturally flocked to them for better performance. Since then, the company has expanded quite a bit and now not only offers NVIDIA cards, but AMD cards and power supplies as well.
XFX's motto is "Play Hard," and their power supplies allow you to do just that. They offer a wide range of units to fulfill any need, from the low power user to the full enthusiast. XFX recently introduced a few new power supplies to their ProSeries line and we are going to take a look at a few of the new units over the coming weeks. Today we are taking a look at the new ProSeries 1000W Platinum PSU. It should offer enough power for nearly everyone out there and do so at high efficiency.
Specifications, Availability and Pricing
As you can see, the ProSeries 1000W PSU is a single rail unit that provides 83A of power on the 12V rail. Both of the minor rails are capable of 25A each with a combined total output of 125W. This isn't quite as high as we would like to see, but it will have to do.
XFX's ProSeries 1000W power supply has nearly a full set of features and almost gets a green check across the board. All of the protections are there, including the Over Temperature Protection. The unit has an 80Plus Platinum certification, but isn't rated for 100% continuous output at 50C. All of the cables are modular and fully sleeved on the unit.
We were able to find the new ProSeries 1000W power supply readily available at a very wide variety of places and the power supply has an MSRP of $249.99. We couldn't find anyone that could beat Newegg's price on the unit, coming in at $249.99 with free shipping. XFX backs the ProSeries 1000W with a five year warranty.
