Platimax continues the row of path-breaking power supplies from Enermax. It is based on the proved, high-performance technologies of predecessor power supply series, the so-called Dynamic Hybrid Transformer (DHT) Topology and Full-Zone Magnetic Quadrant Transformer (FMQ) Design. Enermax engineers successfully improved the cooling performance by applying innovative solutions and equipped the PSU with hand-picked, premium-quality components. That way, Platimax breaks down the barriers of the highest efficiency class, 80 PLUS Platinum.

Yah, they look well but performance-wise, they aren't so shiny. At high loads, regulation takes a dive on the 1200W version:

Also, those prices are totally ridicilious. I mean, €185 for 500W, which isn't even a new design? Enermax has already used that design (tweaked Modu 87+) twice on the Lepa. The big units are also fixed MaxRevo units, so nothing new here actually. These units are no match for SuperFlower's Platinum offerings.

On the very bright side, the Galaxy Evo 1250 (Revo 85+) is still available and is one hell of a PSU.

I'll stick with my EVO 1250W for now. It should serve me for a few years to come.
