Zalman uses Sirfa's HPM and HPJ designs for its second 80+ Gold PSU line
In this day and age, it's only natural that every PSU brand taking itself seriously has at least a few 80+ Gold power supplies available for purchase. Zalman joined the gang pretty late in the game with the GoldRock series, and now they continue catching up with their upcoming EBT series.
The series consists of four models right now: the 650W, 750W, 850W, and a 1000W unit. A 1200W unit was also manufactured, but it's nowhere to be seen at Zalman's website. It may have been cancelled, or we may just need to wait some more time to see it.
The OEM for these is Sirfa. They will sure keep themselves busy with all the orders from all these brands coming to them. The 650-750W units use the HPM platform, and the 850-1200W are HPJ.
