High Power Shows Off Astro PT Line of Premium Smart-PSUs

PSU maker High Power unveiled the Astro PT line of premium PSUs, which as the name might suggest, are 80 Plus Platinum certified. Astro PT is a "smart" PSU, which comes in 600W and 700W capacities, features a single +12V rail design, and a few impressive innovations, such as a WiFi-based connection to your PC, using which it interfaces with a monitoring and fan-control software.

Why WiFi and why not USB, you ask? Because WiFi allows overclockers to use an external device, such as a notebook, to monitor the PSU, so the bench machine the PSU is powering isn't affected by monitoring software. This software lets you monitor the various power domains, and tinker with the unit's fan-curve. The Astro PT also features an in-built power load meter that works like Kill-a-Watt, and measures power consumption at the AC receptacle. The Astro PT also features a digital VRM design, partially modular cabling with flat modular cables, and a 135 mm fan. The PSU supports low-power C-states of the new Core "Haswell" processors.

High Power Also Unveils Astro PT PSUs with Load Meter

High Power also unveiled the Astro PT series of PSUs for gaming and enthusiast PCs. Its showed off a 700W model, featuring a patented LED-based real-time load-meter. Typically, PSUs are most efficient when the load is around half its capacity. This meter updates the user using colorful LEDs: blue for light-load, yellow for the load that's treading into "efficient", and red for high-load/overload. This way, overclockers know if their PSUs are coming in the way of stable CPU and VGA overclocks. The Astro PT 700W PSU is semi modular, with a few important cables being fixed, and sleeved, while redundant cables being modular, and flat. These PSUs boast of 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, feature a single +12V design, and 135 mm golf-surface fan to cool the unit.
