    Corsair plans to expand its AXi line of digital PSUs with two new models, the AX760i and AX860i. The two are characterized by 80 Plus Platinum compliance, and Corsair Link support, which gives you digital control thanks to its onboard DSPs. In addition to the various ATX, SATA, and PCIe standard connectors, the PSU connects with your system over a USB 2.0/1.1 internal header, interfacing with the Corsair Link 2 software. The software gives you real-time monitoring of power-draw (load), efficiency, fan-speed, and ambient temperature (within the PSU casing); and manual control over the fan-speed.

    Both the 860W AX860i and 760W AX760i come with enough cabling for gaming PCs with three to four graphics cards (six to eight 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors), anywhere between 12 to 14 SATA power connectors, around eight 4-pin Molex power connectors, and two 8-pin EPS connectors (for use with enthusiast-grade motherboards). The AX860i is listed by Canadian retailer Canada Computers & Electronics for CA $235, while the AX760i is listed by German retailer Alternate.de for 219€. These could be pre-launch prices. The AX860i and AX760i are slated for launch a little later this week.

    Update: JonnyGuru posted some pictures of the AX860i. The pictures reveal the fully modular PSU to be contract-manufactured by Flextronics.

    Sounds like these are basically the same as Seasonics Platinum 860 and 760w PSUs.

    I hope that for these models, the PSUs they'll be sending to reviewers would have the same components with the ones that are gonna be available on retail... :)
