Rosewill Tachyon 750 W Review

Specifications »


We would like to thank Rosewill for supplying the review sample.

This is not our first Tachyon PSU review as we actually tested this series' flagship, the Tachyon-1000, several months ago. It managed to impress us enough to be awarded our Editor’s Choice badge, but it is now time for the second-strongest unit of the line, the Tachyon-750, to prove its worth. We will figure out whether it can compete with the competition's recently released products for this category. You see, while the Platinum platform the Tachyon-750 utilizes is made by a respectable manufacturer, it has also been around for a pretty long time, and Super Flower recently released their second generation Platinum platform with the Leadex units. It'll be interesting to see how SF’s older design stands up against the competition's new designs because the Tachyon-750 is currently also priced similarly to other high-end PSUs in its category.

The Tachyon-750 is 80 Plus Platinum certified, utilizes a semi-modular cabling design with normal wires, has a single +12V rail, and is backed by a seven-year warranty. According to Rosewill, it can also deliver its full power continuously at up to 50°C ambient, which means that its internal components have the necessary tolerance to handle heavy abuse. With four PCIe connectors, this unit looks like the ideal candidate for a mid-level system with two VGAs, but only finishing all of our test sessions will give us the complete picture, whereupon we will either recommend it or not.
