The power supply lineup includes the EVO 2.0 series of 80+ Gold certified units with ratings from 750 to 850 watts. While rated conservatively, TT states that these units can comfortably run 100 watts over rated capacity all day long by using the OC feature. This increases the fan speed and changes the color from a cool blue to red so you have a visual indicator of the state you are running. All with the push of a button. The Toughpower Grand series is 80+ Platinum rated and comes with a stylized housing. Along with the power supplies were a series of rechargeable battery packs that can be used to extend the on time of your portable devices, be it just enough to make a call or to fully recharge your smartphone or tablet.
As you might expect, gaming peripherals were out in full force with a wide selection of headsets, mice and keyboards to represent the Tt eSports branding. The 3500dpi Sapphira and the 5600dpi Theron were shown off in a multitude of colors. Not to be left out, the Level 10M aluminum-bodied gaming mouse got into the color game as well.
The Meka G-series of mechanical keyboards were well represented with new designs that feature illuminated keys, new colors, and some with Cherry Black switches. Each keyboard features 1000Hz polling rate and up to 60 macro keys on the Meka G Unit. The Tt Shock series headsets are not new, but have an expanded color lineup to allow you to match your entire system. The BAHAMUT is an external sound solution featuring DTS Surround Sensation technology run through the USB bus of your system. ISURUS Dub in-ear gaming headphones feature a small inline mic and soft ear sleeves to go with the flat cabling that prevents kinks. Another new item this year was the Console One headset for use across the gaming spectrum with the PC, PlayStation 3 and XBox 360. It features 40mm drivers, a noise canceling mic, and comes with the adapters needed for your system of choice.
