BFG has released a new 800W power supply with Frequency Conversion technology. The firm claims their new ES-800 800W PSU features an efficiency of at least 80 percent, even with loads as low as 10% of the unit's maximum output.
“Our goal with the ES-800 was to provide a power supply that can stand up to the most discerning enthusiasts and stand out as superior when compared to any other unit in its class”, said Jon Gerow, power supply product manager for BFG Technologies, “We are delivering a flagship unit with low noise, high efficiency across the board, uncompromising build quality, and the ability to support virtually any SLI build—all in one package.”
80 PLUS® Certified and Highly Efficient
While most computer power supplies pinnacle at 80% efficiency, the BFG ES Series is typically 80% to 85% efficient, which means more power drawn from the outlet is converted to DC power for your computer than many of the other units on the market. In order to achieve certification, the 80 PLUS performance specification requires power supplies in computers and servers to be 80% or greater energy efficient at 20%, 50% and 100% of rated load with a true power factor of 0.9 or greater.
Frequency Conversion Technology
The ES-800 can modulate its operating frequency and emulate a smaller PSU as needed. So while most power supplies are not very efficient at loads less than 20% of their total capability, the ES-800 is 80% efficient at loads as low as 10%.
800W Continuous Rating at 40°C
Rated at realistic operating temperature as opposed to room temperature like many other units on the market
BFG Thermal Control Technology
During regular operation, the fan slows down to reduce unnecessary noise. Furthermore, the 138MM ball bearing fan in the ES-800 has a start up voltage of only 3V, nearly half of most power supply fans on the market. This allows the fan to spin slower than 700 RPM at lower loads.
ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.91
Supports the latest Intel® and AMD® based platforms requiring 24-Pin motherboard and 4-Pin or 8-Pin 12V connectors. With the 20+4-Pin motherboard connector, it is also backward compatible with previous ATX standards.
Four 12V Rails
By splitting the +12V source into four separate rails, your components are provided the most stable power available while upholding rigorous safety standards. Over-current limiters are set higher than the standard 240VA to allow for ample overhead when using multiple high-end graphics cards or dual processors.
PCI Express® Ready
The PCI Express® power connectors ensure compatibility with high-end and dual graphics card configurations without having to use unreliable, often performance hindering adapters.
Six serial ATA connectors allow you to connect up to six serial ATA devices without needing special adapters.
