December, 2007 – With the continuously advancing graphic card technology, the power demand of one single enthusiast graphic card can reach up to 300W today; and further from development of the SLi and CrossFire Technology, combining multiple graphic cards into the same system to achieve powerful and extreme graphic and visual experience, the power requirements of VGA cards have been pushed higher and higher. In order to satisfy the increasing power demands of graphic cards, Thermaltake Technology is releasing the new Power Express 650W and 450W VGA Power Supply Unit.
Completely independent from the main Power Supply Unit, Power Express is designed to have its dedicated AC power input; thus bypassing the need to upgrade the current power supply in order to meet the power requirement of your extra graphic cards. Both Power Express 650W and 450W are built with two 6-pin PCI Express and two 8-pin PCI Express connector supporting even the most demanding graphic cards configurations available today. Dual 12V rails, each with maximum output of 30A, provides uninterrupted and dedicated power for each connected graphic cards. To further ensure maximum stability and compatibility when combining with any ATX12V main power supply, an extra 24-pin adapter has been included to ensure both the main power supply unit and the extra Power Express can be switched on at the exact same time.
Besides the careful stability and compatibility concerns, the new Power Express has also been designed for convenient installation on the standard 5.25” drive bays without the need of a proprietary chassis. SCP (Short-Circuit Protection), OVP (Over-Voltage Protection) and OCP (Over-Current Protection) power protection features are all standard to ensure stability and reliability.
The new Power Express VGA power supply units are designed not only to increase the stability of the high-end PC systems, but also to save your costs for the increasing power demands of the ever-advancing graphic cards in the future!
