Antec TruePower New 550W Power Supply
Article Publish Date:
One of the most important decisions every PC owner in the world has to take is when his current power supply unit dies and he, or she, has to go out and get a new one. That's when you reach a crossroad and you have two roads to take, either get yourself a cheap power supply similar to the one you had or spend more and get yourself a better one. The reasons as to why the second choice is the right one have been pointed out by us time and again and so there's little need to go over them again. Today we have the new Antec TruePower New 550W variant on our test table and we are quite curious to see if it continues the great TruePower saga.

The Antec TruePower New line is actually the fourth product line to carry the TruePower name after the original TruePower series followed by TruePower II and then TruePower Trio. Of course the TruePower series was never Antec's flagship line that was the job of the signature edition, however the TruePower series always delivered very good stability at a very reasonable price range. So what about the new TruePower New series? Well over a year ago we did test the TP-750 which is the 750W variant of the same series and I have to say that we were quite impressed with it so we do expect similar performance levels from its smaller brother.
