We mainly know Fractal Design for their cases, but did you know they make power supplies as well? Over the past couple of years the really high-end power supplies all had 80PLUS Gold certifications, but now we are seeing 80PLUS Platinum certifications. 80PLUS Platinum certification means that the power supply runs 92% efficient at 50% load and 89% efficient at 100% load. Today we are taking a look at Fractal Design’s Newton R3 600W Power Supply that not only has the 80PLUS Platinum certification it features a semi-modular design, single 12V rail, semi-passive fan, and is CrossFireX certified. Is this this next power supply for your system? Read on as we take a look…
