- TAGAN Introduce "TWO FORCE" Series PSUs


TAGAN have forwarded on details of their new TWO FORCE Series PSU today, named after its dual 12v rails which allow for a more solid +12v line as components become more demanding. The new PSU offerings are also compatible with both Intel's ATX12V 1.3 and ATX12V 2.01 standards. Further details in TAGAN's supporting PR.


Tagan's Two Force Series is believed to be the first PSU in the world to be compatible with both ATX12V 1.3 and ATX12V 2.01 standards. A switch at the back of the PSU allows users to alter between combining the 12V rail (ATX12V 1.3) or to separate the 12V rail (ATX12V 2.01). The Two Force Series will also be fully SLI ready, fully equipped with two independent SLI cables to power the latest graphics card in the market available today. Tagan's latest offering has once again followed its philosophy of always being the first and being the best having previously been the first to introduce transformable mainboard connectors and the first to implement PCI Express in a PSU. The Tagan Two Force series will be showcased at CeBit, 10-16th March 2005 in Hall 19, Booth C05.
