Today we are looking at a new power supply from XFX, the Pro Series 650W – the smallest in a series of three units recently released (750W and 850W are also available and will be reviewed shortly). This is not the first time XFX have released a series of power supplies – their XXX (semi modular) and Black Edition (fully modular) ranges were well received, both critically and by the enthusiast audience.
While 80 Plus Gold certified products are the holy grail for the high end enthusiast audience, they are priced too high for the mainstream audience. The new XFX Pro series is launched as a value for money product with 80 Plus Bronze certification, ensuring good efficiency levels with competitive pricing. XFX are also keen to highlight that some manufacturers are misleading the public with dubious, inflated wattage ratings.
EasyRail Technology is a key focal point for XFX with a slogan of ‘one rail, one setup’. We know that Seasonic are the manufacturer behind this design so we have high hopes for a quality power supply today. XFX are giving a full five year warranty with each power supply. European customers simply have to register their product on www.xfxforce.co.uk to upgrade the standard 3 year warranty to the full 5 year plan.
