Corsiar has recently introduced a new line of modular power supplies based on the popular TX V2 Enthusiast Series. The new modular PSUs have an attached ATX 12V cable and a full compliment of flat, detachable cables. Being 80+ Bronze certified, the new PSUs are able to deliver at least 85% efficiency at 50% load. Available from authorized retailers in July, the models range in wattage from 550 watts to 850 watts.
The Corsair TX550M is based on the TX550 V2 and is able to support the following connectors in addition to the non-modular ATX 12V cable.

On the voltage front, the PSU is capable of delivering 45A on the +12V rail and 25A on the +5V rail.
