Antec PSUs Compatibility with Intel Haswell

Antec maybe last to the show but they have gotten there. Antec PSUs have been certified for Intel Haswell. Antec also went one step further and made a second list of notebook chargers for those who plan on getting a notebook once Haswell has been integrated into them. If you do have an Antec PSU now you breath easier knowing that most likely your PSU will be compatible with Intel Haswell processors. Like we have mentioned in other articles the issue with Haswell and manufacturer PSUs are the new C States Intel has designed. The C6 and C7 idle power states allow the Haswell chips to drop to a staggering 0.05 amp idle power consumption rate. The Intel Ivy Bridge family of processors did very well at 0.5 amp power consumption rate but Intel Haswell has completely stole the show by lowering that threshold by 10 times.

Now as with most of the other major power supply manufactures, Antec has fully compatible PSUs for your upgrade to Intel Haswell or even if you need a new notebook adapter. The power end Antec PSUs have not been certified by Antec to be compatible with Intel Haswell but for the most part all the mid to upper teir PSUs have been certified to work with the C6 and C7 idle power states of Intel Haswell. If you have an Antec PSU or looking at buying one to upgrade or build a new PC for Intel Haswell this is a great list to consult and I am sure that Antec will be updating this list in the months ahead to let people know if their PSUs that aren’t listed here will be able to handle the Haswell C states. Also if your PSU is not on this list then you can still use Intel Haswell. The C states can be disabled but you just lose out on the efficiency of the new C states.
