Corsair, a worldwide designer and supplier of high-performance components to the PC gaming hardware market, today announced the Corsair AX1200i Digital ATX Power Supply, calling it the world's most advanced modular power supply for PC gamers and enthusiasts.
Corsair states that the AX1200i's digitally-controlled power circuitry provides incredibly stable voltages, and exceptionally low ripple and noise. The brand claims that these features are aided by the reduced component count and elegant circuit-board layout that is made possible by the DSP-based design. These design elements also help in contributing to the AX1200i's 80 PLUS Platinum certification and substantially high energy-efficiency of up to 92 percent. This high efficiency also results in reduced heat, thereby allowing the AX1200i to operate in a silent fan-less mode, until the PSU load reaches 40 percent of the maximum power rating.
Corsair AX1200i launching in August
Commenting at the launch of the Corsair AX1200i Digital ATX power supply, Ruben Mookerjee, Vice President and General Manager of the Components Business Unit at Corsair said "Corsair has earned a reputation as one of world's best providers of enthusiast PSUs, and with the AX1200i, we have raised the technology and performance bar far above anything the market has seen. By designing the first DSP-based enthusiast PSU and integrating our unique Corsair Link technology, we can offer enthusiasts a PSU with a matchless combination of performance and customizable features."
The brand claims the AX1200i's DSP-based design, combined with Corsair Link technology, provides enthusiasts with unprecedented control over the features and performance characteristics of their PSU. This includes real-time monitoring of temperature, current draw, and power efficiency, as well as the ability to adjust the speed of the internal 140mm fan. These features also allow for a unique level of customization, such as the ability to switch from the default single +12V rail configuration to a tailored "multi-rail" mode, with the ability to set over current protection set-points on a per-rail basis.
In addition to launching the flagship AX1200i Digital ATX Power Supply, Corsair is also updating its highly respected Professional Series HX range. The upgrades include 80 PLUS Gold certification, providing up to 90 percent energy-efficiency, and significantly lower noise levels. The new HX PSUs now feature a silent fan-less operation mode at low loads. The new HX PSUs are available at the same price points as the outgoing models. The new Professional Series HX range is available in 650W, 750W, 850W and 1050W wattage ratings.
If one is wondering when this power supply can be purchased, Corsair has announced that the AX1200i Digital ATX Power Supply and the upgraded Professional Series HX are expected to be available by August 2012 in India. As of now no word is available on the pricing of the product.
