BFG announced their EX-1200 modular PSU with Frequency Conversion Technology which is rated at 1200 watts continuous at 40°C (140°F).  It features 98 amps on the 12 volt rail and has a separate +5VSB. It will be available at Newegg starting the week of March 23, 2009 for US$249.

Lake Forest, IL – (March 23, 2009) – BFG Technologies®, Inc., the leading North American and European supplier of advanced NVIDIA-based 3D graphics cards, power supplies, and the Phobos™ High-Performance Gaming/Home Theater System, announced today the BFG EX-1200 modular power supply with Frequency Conversion Technology, which emulates virtually any size power supply and is at least 80% efficient, even with loads as low as 10% of the unit’s maximum capability.

 The BFG EX-1200 modular power supply is rated at 1200 watts continuous at 40°C (140°F) and features 98 amps on the 12 volt rail. The unit also has a separate +5VSB which provides better efficiency when the unit is in standby or powered down. The EX-1200 power supply is 80 Plus® certified and supports NVIDIA® 3-Way SLI, making it the perfect choice for high efficiency and systems running multiple graphics cards.
“Most high wattage power supplies are extremely inefficient when idle or running day-to-day office tasks”, said John Malley, senior director of marketing for BFG Technologies. “Our exclusive Frequency Conversion Technology enables the EX-1200 to maintain at least 80% efficiency even when not being tasked with power intensive 3D games, and when the system is idle it uses approximately one fourth of the power that it would during gaming. That means real energy savings for the customer and a greener environment for everyone.” 

The BFG EX-1200 modular power supply will be available at starting the week of March 23, 2009 for US$249.
