BFG started shipping the EX-1000, a new modular power supply that can deliver up to 1000W. The unit features four +12V rails and has a 80Plus Bronze rating.
According to the test reports from 80Plus, the BFG EX-1000 has an efficiency of 87.13 percent at 20 percent load, 87.86 percent at half load and 83.44 percent at full load. It's available for around $200.
BFG Tech has taken a whole new approach to computer power supplies with the EX Series. Most power supplies are inefficient at lower loads, making it difficult to plan for future expansion while maintaining a green initiative. By using Frequency Conversion technology, the EX power supply can actually emulate virtually any size power supply and therefore be at least 80% efficient, even with loads as low as 10% of the unit's maximum capability. EX power supplies have the lowest minimum load requirements and the best +5VSB efficiency on the market. BFG Tech uses all Japanese capacitors for longer life and gold-plated pins for improved conductivity.
