The launch of the Seasonic Platinum series has achieved great success last year. The fully modular Platinum-860W and Platinum-1000W power supplies have won numerous accolades and became standards of excellence for the 80 Plus Platinum design throughout the entire industry.

This year, by presenting an extended family of the Platinum series, Sea Sonic's strength in innovation once again takes center stage to lead the way towards solutions that require the highest efficiency and top performance. The new lineup of Sea Sonic's Platinum series will span the output range of 400 to 1200 watts. All units of the family come equipped with our patented Fully Modular DC Cable design that maximizes output, ensures the stability of the crucial 12V rail and, at the same time, provides ease of integration and ensures forward compatibility.

Finally platinum, my X-660 Gold serves me very well and i definitely will be getting another seasonic in the future probably a 660 Platinum.

Now when are the Diamond rated coming out?

And its for 230V only as it seems becuase genius americans are using unefficient power current :*

BTW i dont think people should upgrade from Gold to Platinum for 1-2% efficiency, seems like a fairly stupid move to me.

next certificate is Titanium.
IMO, would've been better to dub the ratings 80, 85, 87½, 90 and 92½ Plus etc. instead of "80 Plus" and the silly Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Titanium -affixes.

I wonder what comes after Titanium?
Unobtanium?

I wonder how long it will be until they make consumer level Titanium 80Plus PSUs, because that's the only thing that will persuade me to ditch my 80PLUS Silver PSU. Platinums aren't worth the premium over Bronze, Silver or Gold unless your system is under load 24/7. In idle, they are all equally inefficient due to the idle power consumption being less than 80W and dropping with every new generation of GPUs and CPUs, which is below any current 80PLUS power supply's peak efficiency level. Only Titanium 80PLUS PSUs fix this by having a 10% power envelope, and that's the only thing that will persuade me to "upgrade" my power supply.

A: I'm American with access to 230v. :confused:

B: 3-phase power has less conversion losses, but that doesn't mean it's the right medium for providing power to a computer. So why use it? Also higher voltages inherently have better conversion rates because 230v is impacted by circuit resistance that much less than 115v. Remember Ohm's and Joule's laws.

Heat is directly proportional to the square of the current times resistance. Which means that on a machine that uses 115v which draws twice as much current as 230v will have 4 times as much losses due to resistance because heat (conversion losses,) is that much higher in 115v because you need more current to make up for less voltage.

With that said, 230v is also more dangerous to service and work with than 115v. Even if it can deliver twice as much power on the same cabling or just as much power on smaller cabling (with more insulation of course). There is a reason why you see 12v and not 230v in a car.

dude,every 80 plus psu's come with full range (105v-230v) capability.there's is frequency (50Hz-60Hz),amperage (A) and electrical structure (2 phases or 3 phases )rather than only voltage rating to judge.

Some men upgrade to GTX 680 SLI while still gaming on single screen 1080p,does this makes sense?and for that 1-2% number,where you get it?

But cables are probably snakes again, colorful snakes, one color is not good.
I like Seasonic and CORSAIR too.
