The Ultra series is an update of last year's Flagship PRIME models. Key differences according to the Seasonic press release [seasonic.com]
- Seasonic has included a PSU tester in the box that will let consumers perform a quick and easy jump start on the power supply. When a system is not working properly, it can be particularly difficult to tell the difference between a faulty power supply and other components. With the help of the PSU tester, users will be able to verify whether the new power supply is working properly.
- Each PRIME Ultra Series power supply will also ship with a SATA 3.3 adapter to support the "Power Disable" (PWDIS) feature of the newer, high-capacity hard drives. This is an important feature for people who are planning to use the PRIME Ultra to power hard drives of a smaller-scaled server at home or in an office.
Some design updates of the PRIME Ultra power supplies further optimize usability.
- One of the most noticeable of the upgrades is that the inline capacitors on the cables were removed, which takes away from the bulk and improves cable management inside the system.
- The new 180 degree SATA connectors will ensure more flexibility and easier installation.
140mm length is also more compact than the Flagship PRIME series, while still retaining a 135mm FDB fan.
