There’s always lots to see and do at Computex and one vendor who graciously gave us a huge chunk of time and a tour around their booth and their new products was OCZ. Coming out of San Jose California, OCZ was always known for their RAM and their Vertex SSDs. This Computex, OCZ have come with some awesome offerrings both in the Consumer and Enterprise sector.
Starting off with their new Fatal1ty series PSU’s which come in 550, 750 and 1,000W flavours, these new PSUs will slot in between the current ZX series and ZT series PSU families. The PSU’s (named after FPS legend Jonathan “Fatal1ty” Wendel) feature 100% individually sleeved modular cables, a whole series of tech to make most efficient use of power and increase reliability as well as a specialised DC-to-DC convertor to be Intel Haswell ready.
