New 80 plus gold and 80 plus bronze PSUs announced
LEPA Technology announced new power supplies in the GM MaxGold, BM MaxBron, and MX F1 series, which range from a modest 350 Watts up to a more robust 1,000 and targets everybody from entry to enthusiast-level computer builders.
The GM-MaxGold and BM-MaxBron are both semi-modular power supplies. They feature a special Anti3s Q-Brick design which is a protective sleeve designed to protect from static, shock, and slip. This protective sleeve comes in two colors, red and black. In addition, both lines boast an improved DC-to-DC converter which improves stability in C6/C7 sleep modes. This ensures full Haswell support for low power sleep states.
Socket 2011 CPUs priced similarly to Sandy Bridge-E
Even though the thermal paste is barely dry on Intel’s new Haswell CPU microarchitecture, its performance-oriented Ivy Bridge-E processors are due to be launched soon, and now we finally have some pricing info. According to VR-Zone, we’ll be seeing three Core i7 Ivy Bridge-E CPUs debuting around Q3 this year, including the 4820K, 4930K, and 4960X.
