Antec Inc. announced a new series of power supplies, the EarthWatts Platinum. With this addition Antec upgraded their mainstream power supplies with high energy efficiency, escaping from the standards. The Antec EarthWatts Platinum series now has 100% Japanese capacitors for maximum quality, stability and reliability and has won the 80+ Platinum certification with energy efficiency up to 93%. In the cooling department, the power supplies are using a silent 120 mm DBB Silence fan which even under full load conditions, according to Antec, the fan remains silent.
 

“The 80 PLUS® PLATINUM certified power supplies have so far only been available in higher wattage classes and not for the everyday gamer,” said Mafalda Cogliani, Global Marketing Director at Antec. “Our EarthWatts Platinum power supplies enable more mainstream users and system builders to truly make a difference in their total energy consumption, benefiting both monthly electric bills as well as the environment.”  

The Antec EarthWatts Platinum power supply series is available at the following MSRPs:
 
EA-450 Platinum               USD 109.95
EA-550 Platinum               USD 119.95
EA-650 Platinum               USD 129.95
