Fremont, CA, October 16, 2007 – Corsair a worldwide leader in design and manufacture of high-performance memory and peripheral components, today announced the latest addition to their Corsair power supply lineup: the Corsair TX Series. Inspired by Corsair’s award-winning HX Series, Corsair has engineered the TX Series to be a family of high-wattage, high-performance power supplies that meets and exceeds the most demanding specifications of enthusiasts and performance seekers.
The Corsair TX Series of power supplies delivers optimal performance through the use of advanced technology and industrial-grade components typically found only with more expensive power supplies. With design features, such as a dedicated single +12V rail, the TX Series offers the maximum compatibility with the latest system components. Energy-efficient circuitry capable of delivering greater than 80% efficiency ratings across 20%, 50%, and 100% load conditions make the TX Series of Power Supply Units (PSUs) ideal for high-end PCs using dual-graphics cards for both gaming and professional audio and video applications.
Available in 650Watt and 750Watt models, the Corsair TX Series delivers clean and reliable, fully rated output even at 50ºC ambient temperature. Additionally, the TX Series includes two and four PCI-Express 8-pin (6+2) cables on the 650W and 750W models respectively. The TX Series has been thoroughly tested and is compatible with today’s NVIDIA®’s SLI® and ATI®’s Crossfire® solutions.
With Active Power Factor Correction (PFC) circuitry providing a PF value of 0.99 under full load and 80% or more energy efficiency under a wide range of loading conditions, the TX Series of power supplies generates minimal heat during operation. The high quality thermally controlled double ball-bearing 140mm fan (120mm on 650W) delivers excellent air flow with whisper quiet operation.
“Corsair has been leading the way with enthusiast and high-performance power supplies since our original modular HX Series,” said Jack Peterson, VP of Marketing at Corsair. “The TX Series raises the bar on wattage, energy-efficiency, and over-all system compatibility,” continued Peterson.
The Corsair TX Series, including the CMPSU-650TX (650Watt) and CMPSU-750TX (750Watt), is available immediately through Corsair’s world-wide authorized dealer channel, priced at $179.99 USD MSRP and $199.99 USD MSRP respectively.
