Thermaltake introduced an updated series of compact power supply units, Toughpower SFX, developed according to ATX 3.0 and PCIe 5.0.
The manufacturer notes that the size of the power supply units of the Toughpower SFX of 750 and 850 W is 125 × 63.5 × 100 mm and that the size of the 1,000 W model is 125 × 63.5 × 126 mm. This falls within the SFX standard. The younger models are cooled by 92 mm fans and the older ones by 120 mm, both of which are hydrodynamic bearing solutions. If under 30 per cent of the BP fans are loaded, they will not rotate, thus reducing the total PC noise during operation.
All power supply units are declared to use high-quality Japanese capacitors designed to operate at temperatures up to 105 °C. All submitted BPs meet energy efficiency standards 80 Plus Gold.
All models are equipped with a flat cable modular system. Compliance with ATX 3.0 means that the new ones are able to withstand short-term peak loads that are twice the declared BP power. Compliance with PCIe 5.0 in turn indicates that the power units are equipped with a new 12+4-activated power breaker PCIe 5.0 for the video cards on which the accelerator can transfer up to 600 W of power.
The Termaltake Toughpower SFX will be sold in mid-November of this year, with models valued at $750, 850, and 1000 W at $160,169,90, $180,194.90 and $235,244.90 respectively.
