    Leading graphics supplier, SAPPHIRE Technology is now introducing a broader range of PC power supplies aimed at providing the very best specification of PSU for the PC builder, gamer and PC enthusiast at affordable prices.

    Users of high end computers with expensive CPUs and using the latest motherboards and graphics solutions, including multiple GPU cards or multi-card setups, need a well designed PSU with well regulated outputs to ensure stable and reliable operation. Some power supplies with daisy chained outputs or multiple outputs from the same rail cannot offer the stability of supply to be sure of avoiding potentially expensive failure or the occurrence of frustrating PSU-related computer problems that are difficult to diagnose.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    SAPPHIRE’s new power supply range carries the established PURE brand of its motherboard series, and offers a choice of power ratings. Top of the range is the PURE 1250W, designed for the real ‘power user’ and rated at 80Plus Bronze level. Next is the PURE 1050W, which delivers enough power for most multi-card users and has 80Plus Silver certification. These two products are the real enthusiast products with power in hand for even the most advanced rigs.

    Another new introduction, demonstrating SAPPHIRE’s recognition that value for money is critical in today’s economic climate is the PURE 950W. Delivering over one Kilowatt of peak power, and with certification to the 80Plus Silver level, the SAPPHIRE PURE 950W is positioned at a price level to compete with supplies that have much lower specifications.

    For the mainstream user, SAPPHIRE’s award winning 625W workstation PSU now joins the new introductions as the PURE 625W. This unit is conservatively rated at 625Watts and is also 80Plus certified. It is more than capable of powering a typical PC or graphics workstation even with multiple graphics cards.

    SAPPHIRE PURE PSUs are future proofed with a modular cable system which includes the new ATX V2.3 12-pin connector block scheme supporting not just current but also future CPU and graphics requirements. Current PCI-Express graphics are supported by two cables with two 6+2 Pin (8 Pin) connectors each, not daisy chained but split chained. This makes for less cable clutter than having four cables each with one connector, but is superior to daisy chained solutions and allows, for example, two dual graphics cards easily to be connected. Barbed connectors reduce the risk of accidental disconnection.

    Amongst the many features of the SAPPHIRE PURE PSU design is the use of aluminium capacitors to ensure power stability and reliability. SAPPHIRE PURE PSUs support Active PFC which improves the power factor up to 0.99, has greatly reduced AC harmonic distortion and saves energy. A specially designed 12 cm air intake reduces noise and maximizes heat dissipation, allowing optimal cooling to be achieved with the quiet, white LED lit, 13.5cm ball-bearing fan with speed control (450 – 2000 RPM). SAPPHIRE PURE PSUs are conservatively rated and, unlike competing products, will deliver full power over the unusually wide operating temperature range of 0-50 degrees Centigrade.

    All SAPPHIRE PURE PSU’s are fully tested and certified to be compliant with CE, CB, UL, CCC, FCC, TUV, and RoHs standards. They are designed for global operation, working automatically from line voltages from 100-240V AC. They feature extensive safety protection, including protection against Over Loading, Current and Voltage Protection, Under Voltage Protection and Over Temperature Protection as well as Short Circuit Protection. They are also EMC safety certificated which means full-scale electromagnetic filtering protects the system against radiation interference.

    I hope they don't slaughter their new PSU line like they did with their motherboards. Come to think of it, I never knew they put out PSUs in the first place.

    I only really see those types of fan grills on Enermax so + 1 to them being the OEM.

    Yeah see what I mean, different fan grill, just a single bar with a curl at the end for the screw.

    Enermax ones use much longer ones which so it looks like two bits of metal.

    Edit: I realise the writing part makes no sense, hopefully you can see the difference here ha ha

    Is it me

    It is just me, or does that 24pin Power look like a good 12 inches longer than normal?

    And is it almost identical to the ENERMAX REVOLUTION85+ line (picture below)

    And did Enermax indigenously make that PSU? They surely are the same (except for the shell).

    I allready own a Sapphire PSU.
    My "FirePSU 625W" definately is a rebranded Enermax(namely the Modu82+). It wouldn´t surprise me if sapphire continued the partnership.

    HAHAHA I was going to say the same damn thing

    it looks like ENERMAX!!!


    Specifically the Revolution85+ with stuff to make it look different.


    No wonder why this PSU is top line if enermax actually makes it and outsorces it to Sapphire.

    That's some tricky marketing strategy right there.

    While that's noting bad , enermax is a great brand.

    As long as it is good which it looks as though it is. Then it is better to have another brand on the market might help make the prices more competitive.

    I am laughing everytime I see something like this... because over @ VGA Forums (the ex-Sapphire Forums) they are always screaming about single rail is always better... they even ban people for just saying that "it depends on if you know how to balance your rails".
    --
    NOTE- DO NOT GO TO VGAFORUMS, he(Gr33nG3cko) has been warned by Sapphire dozens of times and this morning his last warning was issued. After that, his rights to the forum are gone.
