Introduction and Features
Introducing Cyonic, a new player in the global PC power supply arena. Founded in 2013, Cyonic’s goal is to become a global brand of high performance computer parts and accessories. The business is starting off by selling power supplies and Cyonic will soon have three product lines: the AU Series (fixed cables), AUx Series (all modular cables), and the Arise Series (sold exclusively in Japan). The AU and AUx Series will both contain three models, ranging in output capacities of 450W, 550W, and 650W. In this review we will take a detailed look at the AU-450x we received for evaluation.
The new Cyonic AUx Series power supplies feature fully modular cables, quiet operation and high efficiency. And they are housed in a compact chassis that measures only 140mm (5.5”) deep. Cyonic suggests the AUx Series power supplies are “the ideal choice for office use, casual gaming, and Home Theater PCs”. Getting into the PC power supply market might seem a rather daunting task, but Cyonic has partnered with Seasonic as their OEM, which is certainly a good start.

The Register tried out the new Pebble Time which features a colour e-paper Gorilla glass screen for better visibility outdoors, a battery which will last a full week, waterproofing to 90' and all for a $200 price tag. With over 8000 apps for the device it offers most of the functionality of the Apple watch for a fraction of the price. Certain features it lacks such as a heart rate monitor or GPS can be added by using Smartstraps, which not only allows the watch to stay on your wrist but also adds functionality as well. The improvements were noticeable but The Register preferred last years Steel but if you are in the market for a smartwatch you might be wise to hold on as the new Pebble Time Steel is due out in the near future.
"I love what Eric Migovsky has done with the Pebble by creating an antidote to modern smartwatches. The two generations of Pebble so far have been useful, durable and practical – qualities which elude the over-specced and costly Apple and Android kit."
