Article Publish Date:
With all the latest 80 Plus Platinum and Gold certified power supplies introduced during this year’s Computex we really forgot that there are also more "mainstream" solutions in the market and so today we will be taking a look at a familiar product from Antec. A few months back we had the chance to test the High Current Gamer 900W variant which proved to be a very nice alternative for people who simply can't afford the ultra-high end High Current Pro series and today we will be taking a look at the smaller 620W variant.

Overall the unit has exactly what everyone expects from an Antec unit including their "entry level" models so all that's left now is to see how well it does in real life usage.
