    Imagine PowerColor were secretly the AMD partner for BFG.....

    Sapphite produce PSUs as well, so maybe that's a bit of a weak argument...:p

    I hope Jonnyguru reviews one of these to see if they're worth it or not.

    Seems strange PowerColor using Nvidia in their press release.

    Wonder who's making this for them?

    This trend bugs me a bit. All of these tech companies seem to need to put out a power supply line. The problem with this is...I tend not to buy inexpensive power supplies. I go for a single top tier supply that will have a healthy lifespan, providing stable power throughout, not inexpensive newcomers. I don't mind that they try to get into the business in some sense, but I don't see there being a market for everyone's power supplies anymore, the market is so saturated with them. And I don't want to gamble on a power supply made by a newer manufacturer. Unless it's a Seasonic dressed up as something else. Even then I'd probably still buy something else. Maybe they'll perform well and be a good source of PSUs, but unless they really excel at it, I guess I'm not sure why someone would get into it when the market is so full already.

    I agree with you, there are so many bad ones out there. There are so many brands out there that I would never buy. I really only see the top tier PSUs as salable, I'm not sure why people would buy anything else. It's too crucial a component to be gambling on.

    Why do the tech companies feel the need to get into this market? Do people just buy cheap sh*t for their customers? Possibly that, fire sales on lesser quality PSUs mean more profit for some I guess.

    If I would never buy a PowerColor video card, why in the world would I buy a PowerColor power supply?

    I like the crop job on the red PSUs too. At least they're 80+ cert.

    I'm a huge fan of Sapphire's products (had loads of Sapphire videocards throughout the years) but for my latest rig I got me a PowerColor PCS+5850 (price tag on that one was waaaaay too sweet to pass) and all I can say first-hand is that it technically does surpass Sapphire's solution within the same price range. And the card is very well clockable too. PowerColor are not bad products at all. They just never got huge popularity because of people being prejudice, I guess.

    Stop whining, these might be good and they're easy on the eyes. At least wait until we've seen reviews, prices and the quality of the components.

    And I agree on Powercolor making solid graphic cards at decent prices.
