[TechPowerUp] Announcing Cybenetics Power Supply Rating and Certification Agency

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Cybenetics announces its arrival as a cutting-edge computer power supply rating and certification agency, which tests and certifies power-supply units (PSUs) beyond switching efficiency. Cybenetics was formed with one purpose in mind; to introduce new efficiency and noise certification standards for personal computer power supply units (PSUs).

Interesting! Not sure if this is going to take off since 80Plus has been around forever but interesting indeed!

So basically they are doing HI-POT's and call themselves an agency?

What's the point when we already have 80 Plus doing the exact same thing?

I don't think you know what a HI-POT test is.

Second separate opinion on power supply performance. They are also testing a much larger efficiency range than 80+ and also testing noise. They are even reporting ripple at different loads.
post #5 of 33
80+ only tests what the manufacturers sends. If the retail PSU is different than the one tested by 80+, they do nothing. That's my main concern with that certification.

it would be better if they just did what reviewers do, test power capacity, ripple, voltage tolerance, holding-time, feature-test (e.g. OCP, OVP, etc.), and efficiency.

they'll be doing the same thing on this one, grading it based on a sample product, they'd need a massive facility if they wanted to QC all the batches of each model of all manufacturers.

They do most of the important test reviewers do actually. Efficiency up to 110% of rated power, somewhat hot box effincy, voltage tolerance, ripple, and hold up time. No feature sets or checking OVP or OCP. They do note the OEM, cable design, and if they are semi passive on the two units I checked!

Check out their PDF reports it's an impressive amount of data. Corsair AXi1500 https://www.cybenetics.com/code/pdf.php?id=s5f

I like JonnyGuru's comment on that TechPowerUp article and comment section...

And what the **** does he mean about "wonder why jonnyguru.com isn't involved"????

How does he expect us to be "involved"?!?!?!!?

I'll stick with reading JonnyGuru for all my power supply information needs.
post #9 of 33
Honestly just adds more visual clutter and confusion for the majority. Us enthusiasts will read JohnnyGuru and other reviews first before a decision anyway. A little label isn't going to mean "just buy without questioning" for us. But it's nice to see people are passionate about this and making sure people know exactly what they're getting.

He doesn't mince words. I love it.

Im skeptical, given current efficiency certs are near useless to judge quality. Regardless, I always have and will continue to check his reviews before purchase.
