When we paid Antec a visit at Computex earlier this month, the company showed us two power supplies that were part of a yet-unreleased TruePower Quattro line. Antec has now announced the availability of the first of those two models, which has a power rating of no less than 850W. The TruePower Quattro 850W features four 12V output circuits and four +12V rails each rated for 18A of current output, allowing it to dish out 768W of +12V power. Antec is also appealing to enthusiasts by making the PSU modular (with support for two 8-pin PCIe power connectors) and outfitting it with an antique race car-themed paint job.
This isn't the Hummer H2 of power supplies, though. Antec says the 850W TruePower Quattro has Active PFC support and is rated for efficiency between 80% and 85%. Cooling is handled by a single "low-noise" 80mm fan, and the unit is covered by a five-year warranty.
Users who think even a 850W isn't enough headroom for their latest gaming rig need not despair. A 1000W flavor of the TruePower Quattro is scheduled to come out next month.
