Pretty weak efficiency numbers. These are probably cheaper units.

I think there's a pretty good profit margin on PSUs, so that's probably the reason.

Default Personally, I would stick with Seasonic

And with so much other good ones out there, there's absolutely no need for even more companies making PSU's...

I must admit though, I do like some of their graphics cards....
Had a good lauch on this one

I'm curious to see what kind of warranty they will offer. 1-3 years would be pretty bad on such a critical device.

Wouldn't it be interesting if they actually put some time/money/effort into designing quality PSUs rather than just flooding the market with crap low end ones.... you never know until you see.......

Well, i've only had terrible experiences with RMA'ing Powercolor video cards - I wouldn't expect any different with their PSU line. Thumbs down from me.. even if they were rebranded Seasonic (ala XFX)

Powercolor making PSu's? This has to be a joke right?

I've seen and heard many horror stories about their video cards and now they want to sell PSu's.

This is just wrong. So wrong.
