SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - September 26, 2013) -  OCZ Technology Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: OCZ), a leading provider of high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) and power management solutions for computing devices and systems, today announced the availability of its new Fatal1ty Series power supply products, first unveiled at Computex 2013. This refreshed lineup for gamers features high efficiency, a fully modular cable design, and a robust feature-set to meet the demanding needs of multi-GPU systems and provide exceptional system stability. 

The latest enthusiast-grade series from OCZ, these new Fatal1ty PSUs were co-developed with twelve-time world champion Johnathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel to meet the specific needs of fellow gamers, and will be available in 550W and 750W models designed to offer performance and reliability coupled with an updated feature set. With up to 85% energy efficiency at typical loads, the Fatal1ty series features an excellent 80-Plus Bronze rating. Both models feature a powerful single +12V rail for exceptional power distribution, along with 135mm temperature and load-controlled fans with trademark glowing red LEDs for stylish and silent operation for high-end gaming rigs.

"The Fatal1ty line of PSUs have been popular among gamers looking for high quality, reliable power for the latest GPUs and power hungry system components," said Bob Roark, VP of Power Management at OCZ. "The new Fatal1ty 550 and 750W PSUs feature a brand new core and are not only quieter and more energy efficient but also provide customers with enhanced flexibility with a complete modular cable design."

"I've been working with OCZ for many years and these latest PSUs continue the string of quality products for which the Fatal1ty brand is so well known," stated Fatal1ty. 

Fatal1ty Series PSUs are built-to-last with premium components and heavy-duty protection circuitries that utilize specialized DC-to-DC converters for compatibility with Intel's®Haswell™ platform, and are able to operate at lower power usage when off or in standby mode. Equipped with a fully modular cable management system and complete array of connectors, these latest PSUs promote an organized case environment that maximizes airflow by eliminating unnecessary wiring, ideal for case-modders and system builders opting to maintain the aesthetics in customized PC builds.

With an improved feature-set in a sleek, modular design for gamers, the latest Fatal1ty power supply models are available immediately and are backed with a 3-year (550W model) or 5-year (750W model) warranty.
