GIGABYTE Forays Into Enthusiast PSUs with New Xtreme Gaming Line

GIGABYTE is making a serious push into high-end gaming PC power supplies (PSUs), with its new Xtreme Gaming line. The company has, in the past, sold entry-thru-mid-range PSUs. The company showed off its first Xtreme Gaming PSU model, the XP1200M. This 1200W PSU features fully modular cabling, 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, an all-Japanese capacitor design, a single +12V rail, DC-to-DC switching, and a 140 mm double ball-bearing fan that stays off below a load threshold. 1200W may not be the only capacity this PSU lineup will include.

The cables look a bit messy and not a fan of all the stickers.

Those overclocked 6/8-core X79/X99 rigs with SLI/CF cards aren't low-power machines like these LGA115x PC's which are more common..

most brands use the bigger PSU wattage on their adds or promotional changes, not means that all line up will be the same wattage...

I had a XFX 430W PSU with my OC'd R9 290 without problems, so I just laugh to people who believe that "recommended PSU wattage" crap. :rolleyes:
