    Corsair today announced the latest addition to their Corsair power supply lineup: the Corsair TX Series. Inspired by Corsair’s award-winning HX Series, Corsair has engineered the TX Series to be a family of high-wattage, high-performance power supplies that meets and exceeds the most demanding specifications of enthusiasts and performance seekers. The Corsair TX Series of power supplies delivers optimal performance through the use of advanced technology and industrial-grade components typically found only with more expensive power supplies. With design features, such as a dedicated single +12V rail, the TX Series offers the maximum compatibility with the latest system components. Energy-efficient circuitry capable of delivering greater than 80% efficiency ratings across 20%, 50%, and 100% load conditions make the TX Series of Power Supply Units (PSUs) ideal for high-end PCs using dual-graphics cards for both gaming and professional audio and video applications. Available in 650Watt and 750Watt models, the Corsair TX Series delivers clean and reliable, fully rated output even at 50ºC ambient temperature.

    Additionally, the TX Series includes two and four PCI-Express 8-pin (6+2) cables on the 650W and 750W models respectively. The TX Series has been thoroughly tested and is compatible with today’s NVIDIA’s SLI and ATI’s Crossfire solutions. With Active Power Factor Correction (PFC) circuitry providing a PF value of 0.99 under full load and 80% or more energy efficiency under a wide range of loading conditions, the TX Series of power supplies generates minimal heat during operation. The high quality thermally controlled double ball-bearing 140mm fan (120mm on 650W) delivers excellent air flow with whisper quiet operation. “Corsair has been leading the way with enthusiast and high-performance power supplies since our original modular HX Series,” said Jack Peterson, VP of Marketing at Corsair. “The TX Series raises the bar on wattage, energy-efficiency, and over-all system compatibility,” continued Peterson. The Corsair TX Series, including the CMPSU-650TX (650Watt) and CMPSU-750TX (750Watt), is available immediately through Corsair’s world-wide authorized dealer channel, priced at 179.99 USD MSRP and 199.99 USD MSRP respectively. All TX Series power supplies are backed by a 5-Year Limited Warranty complete with customer support via telephone, email, forum and TechSupport Xpress troubleshooting guide.

    well many seasonics are still multi rail, like seasonic's own brand. the antec quattros and what not. but seems like corsair is following pcp&c's footsteps. and also i've been informed that corsair is using chanellwell as their oem now. channellwell is notorious for hiper psu's and the antec smart power series, but cwt seems to have fixed them selves up with the new thermaltake toughpower and corsair psu's/

    Beautiful, one of these will definitely be in my next build. However, Im a bit cautious if what you say is true. Seasonic made Corsair on equal ground with PCP&Cs psus when they debut. I dont think highly of hiper to warrant a change to this new oem

    Hmmm, it seems Corsair may be moving away from Seasonic all together. These are Channel Well units, too.
