XFX announced its new, more affordable, high-wattage PSU series, the Pro Series Core Edition. These are non-modular, single 12V rail design PSUs which feature what XFX refers to as "EasyRail" technology, that ensures all components get to draw their required amount of power since a single-rail design is more accommodating compared to a multi-rail design. It is available in 650W, 750W, and 850W models. The company did not detail the connector layout of each model in detail, but we can tell that all models are SLI and CrossFire certified, and going from bottom up, support 2-way and 3-way multi-GPU configurations.

I thought the green fan looked sweet. It kinda is there color theme to the company. Plus I like green. You don't even see the fan no ways after its in esp bottom mounted. This one does look good. It's not a boring old flat box. Wish more psu's came modular since most people are into cable management. All I can say is, Get rid of the floppy connector or make it modular to plug on a molex if needed. Gaming system with power hungry psu's don't need like two of those. c'mon.

It's an s12II on steroids with dc-dc instead of group regulation.

Looks pretty good actually. Yeah Modular is cool when putting my nephews and brothers systems together their modular psus made things a lot easier. I love my Corsair TX650 but man I wish I had the HX620 or 850.

Nice looking PSU! And Seasonic makes some nice stuff, even the older designs are no slouches by any means! Hopefully they'll release a modular version as well.

Not bad reviews. Better than most in methodology. I still like the more thorough approach used at Jonny Guru, but these are way better than the typical reviews.

These psus show some promise. Of course, being based on the Seasonic X series, it doesn't surprise me.
