Zalman prepares to expand their GVM line
Posted on May 24, 2015, 14:57
Zalman's GVM line currently consists of only two units: an 850W and a 1000W one, both based on the Direct12 Bronze II platform. They will soon meet three less powerful siblings: a 500W, 600W and 700W one.
As outlined in the short document above, the OEM stays the same as the rest of the GVM line - Sirfa.
The HPT platform seems to be a new design, since it didn't appear in any other power supply so far. High Power's usual variant designators state that they certainly aren't aiming for high end territory: BR, ST and AP symbols respectively mean that the platform is designed to achieve 80+ Bronze level of efficiency at most, with the lower variant achieving just the 80+ Standard and the lowest one not even complying with 80+ at all (BR stands for Bronze, ST for Standard, and AP for Active PFC).
Other details such as power distribution, number of cables, modularity or price are unknown for now.
