be quiet! has just announced their brand new SFX Power 2 and TFX Power 2 power supplies. We actually got a first look at both of these power supplies at CES earlier this year. Both of these power supplies are suited for high performance yet compact systems.
be quiet! Launches SFX Power 2 and TFX Power 2 PSUs
The latest power supplies from be quiet! conform the space-saving SFX and TFX format and efficiently provide power for high-performance systems. Despite the small dimensions the models SFX Power 2 and TFX Power 2 are equipped with sleeved cables in a length of 35 to 50 (SFX) or to 65 centimeters (TFX) and with more than enough ports to power a modern Mini-ITX system. This includes the implementation of a graphics card, due to the fact, that compact power supplies from be quiet! have a 6+2 pin PCIe connector (6 pin via Adapter for TFX) – natively or via adapter. With this features it is an easy job to build a potent Haswell-based Mini-PC with dedicated GPU.
Both PSU series are characterized by a particularly high efficiency, which is up to 89 percent and therefore conforms the 80PLUS Bronze standard. A second special version of the TFX Power 2 reaches up to 91 percent and is 80PLUS Gold certified. Thanks to the high efficiency be quiet! is able to realize a extremely silent and effective cooling, which is ensured by a high-quality, temperature-controlled 80 millimeter fan.
Two powerful 12-volt rails
Especially because the models SFX Power 2 and TFX Power 2 provide support for graphics cards, be quiet! relies on a stable 12-volt dual-rail design, which provides rock solid performance values. Therefore these power supplies are a great choice for office- and web-clients, but are just as well suitable for demanding application such as HTPCs with gaming suitability.
Latest safety- and energy-standards
The new small form factor power supplies from be quiet! are equipped with all major safety standards such as OCP, OVP, UVP, SCP and OPP. They also support the C6 and C7 stand-by modes for the latest generation of Intel processors. In addition TFX Power 2 and SFX Power 2 fulfill the newest European regulations ErP 2014.
The TXF Power 2 is available in two versions: with 80PLUS Bronze or Gold certificate and an output of 300 watts each. The suggested retail price incl. VAT is 55 respectively 67 Euro. Interested buyers are able to choose also between two models of the SFX Power 2 series: the 300 watt version costs 55 Euro, while the 400 watt model will be offered for a price of 67 Euro. SFX Power 2 and TFX Power 2 are now available on the European market.
