Fractal Design NEWTON R3 800 W
17 November 2013
Summary: The Newton R3 800 W model managed to register better performance than its bigger brother, the R3 1000W, mostly because of the significantly lower ripple I measured on the minor rails. The extra polymer caps that were used on the modular PCB apparently did the trick.
Pros: Delivered full power at 46°C, Tight voltage regulation, Good ripple suppression, Efficient, Performance of +12V in Advanced Transient Response tests, Semi-fanless operation, Quiet fan under normal conditions, Stealth modular cables, 5 year warranty
Cons: High price, Low hold-up time, There could be less native cables
Summary: I have to say that I had high hopes for the Newton R3 800W power supply and it delivered on most of them. The power supply looks great visually and on paper it is very promising, offering high efficiency with quality components throughout the entire unit.
Summary: The fresh Newton R3 with 1 kW capacity is a very good performer, with the exception of high ripple on the minor rails. It managed to keep tight voltage regulation on all rails despite the tough conditions I used for all tests, and the efficiency levels it achieved were simply amazing.
Pros: Delivered full power at 45°C, Decent price/performance ratio, Highly efficient throughout all load range, Good enough ripple suppression at +12V, Tight voltage regulation, Semi-fanless operation, Quiet fan under normal conditions, Stealth modular cables, 5 year warranty
Cons: Ripple suppression on the minor rails, Low hold-up time, There could be less native cables
Summary: Final Thoughts
The Newton is the first power supply we have taken a look at from Fractal Design and I have to say I am very impressed. With the Newton Fractal Design wants you to know you are receiving a premium product and from unboxing to installation the power supply gives you that feeling.
Pros: – Good performance, – Semi modular, – 80PLUS Platinum certified, – Attention to detail in packaging & design, – 5 year warranty
Summary: Das Fractal Design Netzteil richtet sich ganz klar an Enthusiasten und High-End-Anwender mit üppigem Budget. Das Newton R3 weiß 1000W bietet eine exzellente Technik, hochwertige Verarbeitungsqualität, geringe Geräuschentwicklung und, dem Eco-Trend folgend, hohen Wirkungsgrad.
Pros: top Leistung, einwandfreie Technik, (teil)modulares Kabelmanagement, sehr hoher Wirkungsgrad, Verarbeitungsqualität, viel Power (Watt), zahlreiche Anschlüsse, Länge der Kabel
Fractal Design Newton R3 600W – Skandinavska elegancija
15 May 2013
Conclusion: Fractal Design, kao relativno novi sudionik na tržištu napajanja je pokazao iznimno dobre proizvode, što je Newton R3 600W u našem testiranju i potvrdio. Odlične performanse i vrlo efikasan rad, kao i tih (polupasivan) način hlađenja uz kvalitetnu unutrašnjost i korištene komponente, ne ostavlja...
Pros: Savršene performanse i vrlo stabilan rad, elegantan i nenametljiv dizajn, kvalitetna unutrašnjost, pasivan rad pri nižem opterećenju.
Cons: Kućište osjetljivo na ogrebotine, tanki vodiči na modularnom PCIe kabelu, uvjetno rečeno cijena.
