    Corsair, swimming in accolades for its high quality power supplies, is taping out two new models for launch: TX850W and HX1200W. The TX850W is a slight improvement over the TX750W. It will come with 12V circuitry churning out 70A, and 30A each for the 5V and 3.3V circuits. It will offer four 6+2pin PCI-Express connectors. Retailers in Europe have already stocked this part, which is on offer for 132,55 €.

    The other PSU in the works is Corsair's next flagship model: HX1200W. This modular PSU is an improvement over the HX1000W, but has changes in its +12V rail arrangement. While the HX1000W has two 40A rails, the HX1200W will have two rails rated at 20A each and two rails at 36A each (totaling 112A). It will have the 30A rails for the 3.3V and 5V circuits.

    Apparently, according to a Corsair rep this is all fabricated. However, I'm taking this guy's post with a pinch of salt, how do I know he's an official Corsair rep?

    Well, the TX850 thing is already in stores and its specs as listed by the store matches those mentioned by hwbox. I don't know about the HX1200W, though something does look fishy: total of 80A for +12V for the HX1000W, and total of 112A for a mere 200W increment?

    Well, that's pretty cool about the TX850, I guess we'll have to wait and see if the 1200W appears.

    I just bought a TX750 this morning too. Don't think I'll need anywhere near that much though

    I really like the price on that 850. If I needed to go more, that will be the PSU of choice :D

    From what i get from the jonnyguru post is that redbeard didn't deny the psus but more of the rumored specs. also Corsair's Site doesn't mention either unit.

    The specs for HX1000 as provided on UL.com contradict those mentioned by Corsair:

    UL also says that HX1000W has the same (2x 20A + 2x 36A) +12V rail configuration as that of the HX1200W. UL, 80 Plus, FCC, etc. usually get engineering samples by manufacturers way before release so they could get their certifications in time for the release. Usually manufacturers resort to fabricating specs, using spread-spectrum modulation to pass interference tests, etc.
