LEPA isn't a name you hear that often, though if you subscribe to Maximum PC magazine and/or frequently visit our website, you may recal we equipped last year's Dream Machine with a LEPA G1600-MA power supply. That was a beastly PSU, though LEPA's new MaxPlatinum PSU line has a model that trumps it. It's the P1700-MA-EU, and as you might have surmised, it's a 1,700W model with a peak rating of 1,800W!
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.
