Antec Introduces Updated TruePower Power Supply Units

Antec, the global leader in high-performance computer components and accessories for the gaming, PC upgrade and Do-It-Yourself markets, today announced the TruePower New series, the latest addition to the TruePower line of power supply units (PSUs). The original TruePower set the standard for stable, high-performance PSUs, and now the TruePower New series introduces advanced features for improved system efficiency, stability and reliability.

Antec Introduces Updated TruePower Power Supply Units

The energy-efficient TruePower New achieves the rare 80 PLUS Bronze certification of at least 82 percent efficiency at a wide range of operating loads, lowering operating costs while protecting the environment. Active Power Factor Correction (Active PFC) also helps reduce electrical waste, boosting the TruePower New's efficient energy usage. The TruePower New series features a variety of industrial-grade safety circuitry to help protect your computer Over Voltage Protection (OVP), Short Circuit Protection (SCP), and Over Current Protection (OCP). While maintaining features from past TruePower lines, such as Active PFC and Universal Input to automatically adjust for 100V to 240V power grids, the TruePower New series introduces new features previously seen in Antec's high-end, award-winning Signature Series. Such features include a Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) fan which runs up to 50 percent quieter than traditional voltage-controlled fans, and high-quality Japanese capacitors for enhanced system reliability. DC to DC conversion for the 5V and 3.3V rails also helps improve stability. The TruePower New introduces these advanced features while preserving the affordable price.

The TruePower New is available in four models the 550-watt TP-550, the 650-watt TP-650, the 750-watt TP-750, and the TP-750 Blue with internal blue LED illumination. With +12V rails that are regulated to +-3 percent, the TruePower New delivers full-rated power and tight voltage regulation. The TruePower New series is designed to support EPS12V v2.91 and ATX12V v2.3 systems. Additional product features include Advanced Hybrid Cable Management to reduce cable clutter and improve airflow throughout the chassis, as well as a double layer printed circuit board to allow for heavy duty components and larger traces. The TruePower New series is NVIDIA SLI-Ready certified. The original TruePower set the standard for performance and stability, said Scott Richards, senior vice president of Antec. Now, the TruePower New series expands on that tradition while also offering advanced features from our Signature Series, at an affordable price point.

The TruePower New series is available now for an estimated price of $119.95 for the TP-550, $139.95 for the TP-650, $159.95 for the TP-750, and $169.95 for the TP-750 Blue. All models are backed by Antec's Quality 5-Year Limited Warranty.
