OCZ Technology Introduces the Highly Efficient EliteXStream PSU Featuring a Powerful Single-Rail Design for Optimum Distribution to High-Performance Systems

Sunnyvale, Calif.—April 7, 2008—OCZ Technology Group, a worldwide leader in innovative, ultra-high performance and high reliability memory and PC components, today unveiled the EliteXStream power supply family for high-powered gaming systems and workstations. Designed to offer the consumer market an enthusiast-grade computer power supply with a state-of-the-art architecture, the EliteXStream is the ultimate power solution for those users that require an ultra-efficient, highly reliable, high-wattage solution for their leading-edge gaming machine.

Co-developed with the experts at PC Power & Cooling, the EliteXStream is a flagship model among OCZ’s lineup of gamer-oriented power supplies. Expanding on a lineup of powerful and stable PSUs, OCZ designed the 800W and 1000W EliteXStream for optimum power distribution to all components by utilizing the superior "single +12V rail" design perfected by PC Power & Cooling. This trail-blazing approach to +12V rail design ends the need to budget power "across the rails" as is the case with the less effective multi-rail design found in the vast majority of high-performance PSUs on the market today.

         

"I am excited to bring a high-performance PSU to market that so effectively fuses the in-depth gaming and enthusiast experience of OCZ with the legendary power supply expertise of the PC Power & Cooling division”, said Ryan Edwards, Product Manager for the OCZ Technology Group. “Featuring up to 86% efficiency, a staggering single +12V rail output, a complete array of connectors, and an attractive MSRP, the new EliteXstream Series of PSUs sets a new standard for both the OCZ brand and the high-performance industry in general."

The EliteXStream will be available in 800W and 1000W configurations, delivering up to 1KW of continuous power through a complete array of connectors including four 8-pin (6+2) PCI-E and 17 drive connectors. These PSUs are kept supremely cool with a large 120mm fan and feature a standard ATX power supply form factor.

well... if they are as good as OCZ claims (as in new unique architecture that more efficiently distributes power)... then i'd say pretty impressive. 4 8-pin PCI-E connectors are sure to power anything you can throw at it :)
