Antec announced new products in its HCP Platinum series along with a new family of PSUs, High Current Pro Platinum GRID (HCPP GRID).
The 850W model, HCP-850 Platinum, as well as the 1300W model, HCP-1300 Platinum, obtain all the features and specifications from the elders. Not just a fully modular design, but a patented 16-pin sockets as well as a 20+8-pin MBU socket for future motherboards; 80 PLUS® PLATINUM certified efficiency; 7 years of Antec's renowned warranty and lifetime global support; All Japanese heavy-duty capacitors; engineered as a server-class full-bridge LLC design with a synchronous rectification based on a DC-DC topology to run at 50°C without compromises on safety with a QUAD rail design and protected 9-fold by the CircuitShield™ IC.
HCP Platinum features StealthWires for nearly invisible cable routing, and OC Link™, a proprietary cable and socket solution for two OC Link™-enabled HCP Platinum working in tandem to power the most demanding systems possible. For example, HCP-1300 Platinum includes 10 PCI-Express connectors, while still having one 16-pin socket unused for optional 4 PCI-Express connectors, but it can be maxed to a little more:
Scheduled for release in Q4 of 2013, the High Current Pro Platinum GRID™ series will be engineered on a totally new platform utilizing digital PM Bus/I2C technology and a custom developed software which allows users to take control of the PSU on an array of operating systems which include Microsoft 32-bit & 64-bit Windows 8 (Desktop platform), 7, Vista® & XP.
The High Current Pro Platinum GRID™ series will consist of an 850W model (HCP-850 Platinum GRID) and a 1200W model (HCP-1200 Platinum GRID). Both models will have mostly similar features like their HCP Platinum main series siblings, except for the GRID™ PSU control software & digital technology, which replaces the OC Link™ along with a white LED double ball bearing fan with on/off function.
The High Current Pro Platinum GRID™ series feature a fully modular design, but it also includes 16-pin sockets as well as a 20+8-pin MBU socket for future needs.
