Most of the computer technology world is presently focused on the tiff between NVIDIA and AMD for graphics card domination, and between Intel and AMD for processor leadership. New advances by these chipmakers mean there is also the need for better power supply. Zalman is one company that seems to have kept this in mind – the manufacturer has come out with two new high-output power supply units.
Dubbed simply as the ZM850-HP Plus and the ZM1000-HP Plus based on their wattages of 850W and 1000W respectively, the new PSUs are both 80Plus Silver certified. Zalman has gone with a modular design for its new PSUs. So users will be easily able to cut down on unnecessary cables and cluttering inside their system chassis’. As only required cables will be plugged in, the PSUs will allow internal airflow to be smooth and unhindered.
Zalman has equipped the PSUs with a 140mm fan that directly cools the dual-heatpipe internal heatsink and lets the PSU function with high efficiency and low noise. The active PFC and sleeved cables, and the four 12V rails add to the overall performance. The highly efficient design and specifications let both units perform at 87 percent energy efficiency, which has earned the PSUs 80Plus Silver certifications.
While availability is still unannounced, Zalmas has released pricing for the new units. The ZM1000-HP Plus carries a price tag of $269.99 while the ZM850-HP Plus is priced at $209.99.
