Antec Premieres Elite Line of High-Performance Power Supplies with High Current Pro Series
New series features four 80 PLUS® Gold certified power supplies, attaining highest level of efficiency ratings
Fremont, CA - November 10, 2010 - Antec, Inc., the global leader in high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, today announced its newest premium line of consumer power supplies, the High Current Pro series. Available in four 80 PLUS® Gold certified models, the High Current Pro series boasts unrivaled server-grade efficiency and reliability for powering the most demanding system builds.
The High Current Pro series uses a one-of-a-kind high-performance full-bridge topology for a higher DC-to-DC voltage regulator module working frequency that stabilizes output voltage, making the system more reliable and energy-efficient, and features none of the annoying pitch noise typically found in higher-power 80 PLUS® Gold certified PSUs.
The HCP-750, HCP-850, HCP-1000 and HCP-1200 with 750 watts, 850 watts, 1000 watts and 1200 watts of Continuous Power, respectively, all achieve the 80 PLUS® Gold certification level, delivering power with up to 92% efficiency - a rare distinction in energy efficiency, based on the 80 PLUS® Gold standard, attained by very few other power supplies. In addition, each model outputs its rated power at temperatures even up to 50° C. Active Power Factor Correction (Active PFC) on all models, with a power factor above 0.9 helps to reduce electrical waste and further increases efficiency.
Based on server and workstation technology, the High Current Pro series is crafted to withstand long hours of intense work. Reliability-boosting PSU features on the High Current Pro include all Japanese-brand capacitors and unmatched high-amperage High Current outputs that ensure graphics card compatibility. Together, these attributes provide the rock-solid stability required for cutting-edge gaming and professional systems.
"Antec's High Current Pro series is the optimal choice for users seeking a first-class solution to power demanding system builds," said Scott Richards, senior vice president of Antec. "With all models achieving 80 PLUS® Gold certification, providing unequaled efficiency and output, on all levels, and using top-notch components, the HCP series once again demonstrates Antec's leadership in power supply design and innovation."
The High Current Pro series' high levels of power are delivered with overcurrent-protected +12V rails. There are four rails on the HCP-750, HCP-850 and HCP-1000, and a massive eight rails on the HCP-1200, all with specialized High Current outputs and heavy-gauge 16 AWG high-current lines at the CPU connector. The HCP-750, HCP-850 and HCP-1000 models feature unique 10-pin High Current Hybrid Cable Management connectors (while the HCP-1200 utilizes an 8-pin design,) reducing cable clutter and improving airflow throughout the chassis.
All models are fitted with a double-layer printed circuit board design, and the HCP-750, HCP-850 and HCP-1000 models feature a 135 mm Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) double-ball bearing fan - for operation up to 50 percent quieter than traditional voltage-controlled fans. The HCP-1200 boasts a specially configured Japanese-made 80 mm PWM double-ball bearing rear fan built upon heavy-duty dual double-layer PCB construction to provide the utmost reliability with superior airflow and heat dissipation. This unrivaled layout allows for the HCP-1200's 80 mm PWM fan to efficiently provide inaudible cooling in a wide-range of demanding builds.
The High Current Pro series includes support for Intel multi-core, Core i3, Core i7 and Core i5 CPUs, as well as AMD Phemon II X6 CPUs and quad GPUs. All models are NVIDIA SLI-Ready, (including Triple SLI certification on the HCP-1200 model) and ATI CrossFireX certified.
The entire High Current Pro series will be available through major retailers, e-tailers and distributors in November 2010 and is backed by Antec's AQ5 Antec Quality 5-Year limited warranty on parts and labor.
