The power supply market has certainly changed a bit over the last 18 months. Several months ago, we took a quick cross section of where the power supply market was going, with samples from Antec, Enermax, ThermalTake and Vantec. Because this represented such a small cross section of the market, almost immediately we began working on a larger, more thorough examination.
Directron.com let us pick one of every new power supply off their shelves in order to put together a sample of 18 of the newer power supplies on the market right now. We took a wide range of low end to high end power supplies from just about anyone we found a phone number for. We then ran several exhaustive tests on these power supplies, including a benchmark that checks average memory errors due to power supplies. Without further delay, we present our 18 power supplies.
