With the arrival of the ATI Radeon 5970 and the imminent release of the much promising NVIDIA Fermi chip power requirements have once again gone through the roof. For that reason many power supply manufacturers that up until now only offered solutions of up to 650W have begun to introduce higher output units in an effort to gain some percentage in the high end market. Glacialtech is one of those manufacturers and today we have their newest 950W Power Supply Unit.
GlacialTech Inc. was established in June 2001 by a team of 8 world-class researchers (PHDs) and three factory owners. Its technological areas of expertise include specialized thermal theory, soldering and mounting technologies, mechanism design, test and verification environment build-up and advanced conduct material development. As a total thermal solution provider, GlacialTech is committed to using lighter weight materials, lower noise and lower manufacturing cost to deliver superior cooling solutions. All this has brought about the increased value for our customers with lighter system board loading, quiet working environment and optimal price performance. Price performance, noise performance and weight performance are our three cooling design philosophy. Having acquired ISO 9001 and 14001, GlacialTech commits itself to using green materials for its products designs and to perfecting green manufacturing processes in manufacturing its products. GlacialTech offers two kinds of standard and customized cooling solutions. The standard cooling solutions deal with the CPU coolers for desktop and server PC system, PC case fan, VGA coolers and other accessory cooling products. The customized cooling solutions are furnished with applications for specialized PC barebones system, notebook, consumer products and telecommunication products.
A power output of 950W may not be something great especially since we have seen units with far more watts, still 950W of power will most probably cover most users in the market, whether they own an 5970 or plan on getting one the new Fermi based Nvidia graphics cards. Now the Glacialtech unit features a modular design and comes with the 80Plus Silver Certification. That aside the unit also comes with four 4+4pin PCIex power connectors supporting a maximum of 4 graphics cards.
