Envy News reviews a new Antec PSU.

Continuing the evolution in power output, Antec has done something that is just as helpful in maintaining system stability. Rather than increasing the combined voltage that the 12V, 3.3V, and 5.0V lines have to share, Antec has separated the lines and allowed them to draw from the main power base separately. In the past, the 5.0V and 3.3V lines were lumped together on one regulator circuit; increasing 3.3V line voltage demand would cause sag or power dip for the 5.0V line and vice versa. With the new regulating system, each line is able to draw the amount of power it needs from the entire power output instead of from a predetermined portion as most power supplies do.
