Today we’ll be taking a look at one of the latest power supplies from XFX, a PRO850W Black Editon unit designed for high-end gaming systems and workstations. It ticks a lot of the right boxes that most people are looking for when buying a PSU, as it comes from a well-known and trusted brand name, offers plenty of power for a dual GPU configuration, 80 Plus Gold efficiency, fully modular cables, Japanese capacitors and more.

The unit comes well equipped with high-end features, which means I’m expecting nothing short of excellent performance from it. It promises high-end thrills and performance, so that’s exactly what it has to deliver in our tests. So let’s stop beating around the bush and take a closer look at what this unit has to offer, before firing it up on our load tester.

The packaging is very nicely designed, with a clear image of the PSU on the front, as well as a quick run down of the main specifications.

Around the back, a more detailed explination of the general design, such as the SolidLink Connectors that keep the interior of the PSU neat and tidy; this helps greatly with airflow and cooling.

In the box, you’ll find the usual power cable, some mounting screws and the user manual.
