Raidmax preparing their first 80+ Titanium PSU, based on Andyson's high performance design
Posted on August 7, 2015, 12:51
Raidmax RX-700AT will be based on Andyson's N series platform, already reviewed a while ago at JonnyGuru and TechPowerUP. The test results and score of 9.9 speak for themselves, and clearly show that Andyson's design isn't only capable of reaching sky-high efficiency, but also has tight voltage regulation, great ripple control and highly durable components to go with it - you're getting the whole package.
Now the only real bummer is simple: no store whatsoever seems to carry this unit in their stock. Raidmax has a chance to finally distribute this unit to consumers who were impressed by its achievements.
The unit will sit in Andyson's new product line, appropriately called "Monster". It will feature semi-modular cables and four PCI-Express connectors, like the unit it's derived from. It will be a great way to acquire this affordable 700W 80+ Titanium design in USA and other markets (since the original Andyson N 700W isn't widely available), and also a chance for Raidmax to improve their reputation amongst enthusiast builders.

Here's an overview of the design's layout, including an LLC resonant converter, active +12V MOSFETs and DC-DC minor rail converters helping to achieve high performance and efficiency:

Andyson's usual stickers and markings are hidden on the first glance, but they are visible on one of Aris' shots if you look closely:
Andyson's transformer stickers always include the "211D" symbol, then a single letter assigning the unit to a particular platform series, and then go on with a single "8" and the transformer's characteristics.
Besides the RX-700AT, Raidmax has also prepared a 1200W 80+ Platinum unit, also based on Andyson's recent top-end designs - the R series 1200W, reviewed at Jonnyguru, Tom's Hardware by Aris, and at Anandtech. The cost and availability of this unit isn't known yet, but if priced appropriately, it stands a chance to be the new value king of the "high-high-end" segment.
