Antec Launches High Current Pro Platinum 1000 Watt PSU

Antec, Inc., the global leader in high-performance computer components, announces the High Current Pro 1000 Platinum power supply, the first kilowatt-class PSU offered by Antec certified for 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency. Delivering a minimum of 1000 watts of Continuous Power, the HCP-1000 Platinum makes a reliable addition to the enthusiast's or overclocker's PC.

The HCP-1000's four +12V rails deliver 40A of output each with low ripple & noise levels and an output ratio of up to 100 percent. Characteristic of Antec's top-line power supplies, this unit delivers stable DC current with all Japanese capacitors and keeps cool with a 135 mm thermally controlled double ball bearing fan.


Users can now get the best performance without compromise while taking advantage of 80 PLUS Platinum efficiency certification. This rating ensures that the unit maintains a minimum of 89 percent efficiency across 20-100 percent load levels; the HCP-1000 Platinum runs as efficiently as 94 percent.

Maximizing convenience during installation, Antec's new power supply offers full modularity with Stealth Wires -- darkened wires that reduce visibility in the chassis when connected and routed -- and a set of slim 8-pin connectors. Two of these connectors can be plugged into each of the unit's 16-pin sockets, which also allow for future connectors of 10, 12, 14 and 16-pins.

"We wanted to give users the best possible feature set for their investment in a 1000 watt power supply," said Mafalda Cogliani, Global Marketing Director at Antec. "We designed a highly versatile, practical cabling to maximize cable management options and pushed High Current Pro to Platinum-certified efficiency to create a PSU package unrivaled by competitors at this wattage class."

The HCP-1000 Platinum is now available in North America on Newegg.com, in Canada on NCIX.com, and other major retailers at a $269.95 MSRP. It includes an Antec Quality seven-year parts and labor warranty.

HCP-1000 will be available in Europe the week of April 9.

Wow, is that like 7 different 1kw units based on the Seasonic design? Think everyone is waiting to do their 1000W Round-ups whenever Corsair finally gets around to making a unit available. Have no idea what the delay could possibly be, the Gold Series is almost 2years old, yes they are fantastic but come-on Corsair we want more!

Most likely Corsair is just adding a few more amazing bells and whistles to the platinum units since everyone expects them to be the absolute best in comparison! It just has to be this year right, Corsair could not fall that far behind the rest of the market.
