Soltek Computer, a well-known maker of mainboards and PC barebones, said this week it decided to equip its future small form-factor computers with more powerful power supply units in order to enable higher-speed central processing units and peripherals. The move indicates consistent increase in power consumption of conventional chips.
The company’s new barebone personal computers, the Soltek EQ3801-300 and EQ3401-300P, are said to be furnished with 300W power supply units, providing more power for future central processing units from AMD and Intel Corp as well as other system components, such as graphics cards powered by chips from ATI Technologies or NVIDIA Corp..
“Both EQ3801-300 and EQ3401-300P series adopt the specially designed 300W PSU. The tailor-made 300W PSU offers extra headroom for next generation power-demanding components, peripherals, as well as ensuring the system stability,” the company said in the statement.
