Andrew ‘Spode’ Miller is a strange man. This was confirmed to me late on Friday afternoon when – instead of letting his mind wander to things non-IT related – he became disconcertingly excited about a new Tagan power supply.
"This needs posting!" he prattled.
“It’s a power supply”, I ingeniously countered.
"Yes but it’s a 1.1KW power supply", he opined.
“Don’t ever repeat that sentence to me again!” I snapped, praying this would jolt him out of his terrifying madness.
"But. But! But! It’s a 1.1KW power supply!!"
Well, I’m not one to break a young Spode’s heart so here we go. Tagan has – believe it or not – made a 1.1KW power supply. It has also made a 900W model, both world firsts I’m told but, in truth, I can’t say I know my PSUs like I know the relationship status of Brazil’s hottest supermodels (Adriana you will be mine…).
Judging by the sweat pooling on young Spode’s brow, however, this is a man who clearly does. To sate his torrid desire I’m forced to reveal that both the TG900-UG95 (900W) and TG1100-UG95 (1.1KW) incorporate DTT (Dual Transformer Technology) – a patent pending invention from Tagan that splits high inrush current into different rails. The effect of this is claimed to be twofold: offering greater power and stability to power hungry components while at the same time making the PSU cooler and quieter. For two beasts of such potency (control yourself Miller) naturally they come four integrated six pin PCI Express connectors to support nVidia’s Quad SLI.
When can the pent up hormones in Spode be released? Tagan says 7th April but only in limited quantities. A full release will be made between April and June but we’re not so sure our wattage starved Technical Editor can hold out that long…?
