OCZ technology has announced its new Z-series power supplies that offer a combination of high performance and high efficiency. The series consists of the Z1000 (1000W) and Z850 (850W) units that are offered in both standard and modular formats. Both the z850 and z100 meet the 80 PLUS Gold standard, meaning they operate at over 90% efficiency at typical load ratings.
The Z-series units offer single +12V rails with enough power to meet the most demanding power budgets; the Z1000 is rated at 83A and the Z850 offers 71A. The units are certified at 50°C for those needing long-lasting, top-end performance for mission critical or high-end gaming systems. Each unit also offers active PFC (.99PFC) for rock-solid power in a wide range of operating environments. A single 135mm double ball bearing thermal controlled fan keeps temperatures and noise under control.
OCZ backs each unit with a 5-year warranty and is currently available for $299.99 (Z1000M), $289.99 (Z1000), $239.99 (Z850M), and $219.99 (Z850).
