Gigabyte power supply includes monitoring software
Famed for some particularly overclockable enthusiast motherboards, Gigabyte has decided to further capitalize on the enthusiast market by introducing its own line of high-end power supplies. As luck would have it, our French counterparts over at PC Inpact got their hands on one of the units and have put together a short preview
of Gigabyte's first foray in the PSU market. Gigabyte's PSU lineup will include a total of six units dubbed Odin Pro and Odin GT with power ratings between 550W and 800W, but the model PC Inpact got their hands on is the top-of-the-line Odin GT 800W. It has four +12V rails with maximum combined output of 744W, uses modular cabling, and is cooled exclusively by a king-size (140mm) LED fan.
Interestingly, Gigabyte is bringing something new on the software front with its PSUs. That something is the P-Tuner application, which allows users to monitor the amount of power their system is sucking up, load levels for each of the PSU's four +12V rails, and also the PSU's temperature. Users can even select between multiple fan speed adjustment presets, including performance, normal, silent, and manual modes.
In Europe, PC Inpact says Odin Pro 550W and 800W power supplies will retail between €119 and €169, while Odin GT models with the same power ratings will go for €145 and €195. We'd expect U.S. prices for the same models to be $119, $169, $145, and $195, respectively.
