Features EMI shielding filters on PCI-E cables

Over the weekend, our friends at Topower have released their new flagship Tiger Series XLR-Type 1200w power supply.

As with any enthusiast power supply designed to meet robust high-end requirements, the PSU is equipped with an 80 Plus Silver efficiency rating right out of the box for multi-GPU system configurations. On the outer shell, it features a titanium mirror finish and comes with REMI-coated cabling for optimal reduction of electromagnetic interference from other hardware components and outside variables.

“The beauty of this power supply is that it performs way beyond that specified standard and has a rating that out powers most power supplies in its class,” said Mario Gastelum, Product Marketing, Topower Computer Industrial Co. “We designed and utilized REMI technology to effectively maximize the electrical output to effectively harness the complete power of 1200 Watts. In addition, we developed PNT (Plug-N-Twist) Technology to deliver an easy to manage cable system that won't clutter your PC's interior.”

When asked, Product Manager Rick Lee told us that the unit has a control card with dials to combine and split +12V rails soldered to the PCB. This design allows the possibility for a power supply to support either the Intel ATX 12V spec or a greater +12V power demand from power-hungry GPUs.

While this isn’t the first PSU release we’ve been excited about, it definitely features some solid design wins that put it in our recommended list. We will be reviewing the Topower Tiger Series 1200w very shortly.
