Enermax are well known in enthusiast circles and over the years they have expanded their portfolio to include power supplies, fans, coolers and computer cases. Today we are looking at their new ultra high end Platimax 1200W power supply which is 80 Plus Platinum Certified.

The Platimax is the replacement for the MaxRevo, so we would expect similar performance with improved efficiency. The 1200W power supply is an FMQ design which in the words of Enermax is “a high-performance power supply topology to use all magnetic quadrants of the main transformer and to achieve maximum efficiency and rock stable output voltage.”

Efficiency is rated between 84 and 94 percent and the 1200w model utilises a copper bridge array for direct voltage transmission to reduce the wire resistance and to enhance efficiency. It is also ErP Lot 6 ready to improve power consumption in standby mode.
