Corsair Launches 1200W, 850W and 750W Professional Series Gold PSUs with 80 PLUS GOLD certification
 

– New super-high efficiency, fully-modular PSUs incorporate server grade technology, and set a new standard for high-end PSUs –
 

 

Taipei, Taiwan — June 1, 2010 — Corsair®, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the new Professional Series™ Gold AX1200, AX850 and AX750 fully-modular power supply units, with 80 PLUS® GOLD certification.

 

The Professional Series Gold range of power supplies have been designed from the ground-up by Corsair’s engineers to be the highest-performing and most technologically-advanced PSUs on the market. Built utilizing server-grade power train architectures designed for mission-critical levels of voltage stability and reliability, Professional Series Gold power supplies deliver previously unheard-of levels of performance.

 

 “As shown by numerous reviews and accolades, Corsair has consistently been in the forefront of the industry in producing some of the very best PSUs for enthusiasts and gamers. With Corsair Professional Series Gold power supplies, we have raised the performance bar even higher,” said Jim Carlton, VP of Marketing for Corsair. “By taking a no-compromises attitude to engineering and product development and incorporating server-grade technology, we believe we have created some of the most solid and efficient high-wattage power supplies currently on the market.”

 

Corsair Professional Series Gold power supplies exceed the requirements for 80 Plus Gold certification, delivering over 90% efficiency at 50% load when using a 115V AC input. This increases to over 92% efficiency when used with the 230V AC voltage input specification in Europe. Combined with an advanced cooling design, Corsair Professional Series Gold PSUs are exceptionally quiet and efficient.

 

To achieve these benchmark levels of efficiency, voltage stability, and reliability, Corsair incorporated numerous sophisticated server-level technologies. These include Zero Voltage Switching and Zero Current Switching technology to eliminate switching losses and reduce EMI, and individual DC-to-DC voltage regulation for the 3.3V, 5V and 12V rails. The use of secondary-side synchronous rectification and an advanced 4-layer PCB results in unusually low levels of ripple and noise.

 

The Corsair Professional Series Gold AX1200, AX850 and AX750 PSUs feature a fully-modular low-profile cable set. This allows the system builder to use only those cables that are needed, reducing cable clutter and maximizing airflow through the PC. All Professional Series Gold power supplies are able to continuously sustain their full rated output at an ambient temperature of up to 50°C, which means that they continue to provide outstanding performance even at elevated temperatures.

 

Corsair Professional Series Gold power supplies are provided with a seven year limited warranty, and are backed up by Corsair’s legendary customer service and technical support.

Corsair Launches AirFlow Pro Memory Parametric Data Display for Dominator DIMMs

 

– Data reported via 5-pin connector incorporated on recent-generation Dominator memory modules with DHX Pro technology –

 

Taipei, Taiwan — June 1, 2010 — Corsair®, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the Corsair AirFlow™ Pro parametric display for select models of Dominator® memory. This display reads memory activity and voltage from modules enabled with DHX Pro™ technology, and presents the data on an outrageously cool LED display that mounts above the memory.

 

Background

Enthusiast customers have always been interested in knowing what is going on with their memory, and in response Corsair has offered unique, pioneering products to provide this information for many years. In 2003, the Pro Series memory took the enthusiast community by storm, providing an LED meter display that showed how intensively the memory subsystem was being accessed. We took that idea a step further in 2005 with the XPERT series, which offered display of memory parameters both on the module and through a Windows® application. Now, Corsair continues to innovate with the launch of the AirFlow Pro parametric display.

 

Introducing Corsair AirFlow Pro

Corsair AirFlow Pro mounts above the Corsair AirFlow fan, and provides a dynamic display of memory activity and temperature for up to six modules. Photos and video of the AirFlow Pro in action can be seen here. Corsair’s signature LED peak meters are used to reflect memory activity by module and memory rank. In addition, LEDs in the center of the display adjust their color based on the measured temperature of the memory module.

 

“The AirFlow Pro takes memory activity and parametric display to an awesome new level,” stated John Beekley, VP of Technical Marketing at Corsair. “The elegance of the AirFlow Pro implementation, combined with the fascinating display of activity and temperature, makes this device a must-have for any system with a windowed case.”

 

DHX Pro is the Enabling Technology

In developing AirFlow Pro, the engineers at Corsair created DHX Pro, an extension to the patented, thermally-optimized DHX design, incorporating measurement expertise gained in developing the technology behind the Corsair XPERT line. These enhancements include circuitry to measure multiple memory parameters, and a 5-pin connector, shown in a detailed photograph here, to allow access to the information. The parametric data is collected by a microcontroller-based receiver circuit and processed for logging or display.

 

Select models of Dominator memory have been shipping with DHX Pro since early this year. A list of Dominator memory with Corsair DHX Pro can be found on Corsair’s Blog.

 

Developer Kit Available

The receiver circuit that processes the parametric data from the DHX Pro memory is an open design that can be accessed by other companies, or by end users with a no-cost, royalty-free license. The bill of materials, schematic, and signal definitions will be made available to allow other hardware to monitor and display the parametric data from the memory subsystem. A full developer’s kit is expected to be available June 30, 2010.

 

Corsair AirFlow Pro will be available later this summer from Corsair’s worldwide network of authorized distributors and resellers. It is supplied with a two year warranty, and is backed up by Corsair’s legendary customer service and technical support.
