Riotoro Onyx Series Power Supply Review
Introduction and Features
Earlier this year we looked at the Enigma 850W PSU from Riotoro, their first entry into the PC power supply market. Today we are going to take a detailed look at two more power supplies in Riotoro’s new Onyx Series. Formed in 2014 and based in California, Riotoro originally started their PC hardware business with a focus on cases, mice, and LED fans targeted towards the gaming community. They are continuing to expand their product offerings to include two new power supply lines, the Enigma and Onyx Series, along with two liquid CPU coolers and several RGB gaming keyboards.
Riotoro announced the introduction of the three power supplies last year at Computex 2016: the Enigma 850W, Onyx 750W, and Onyx 650W. All three power supplies were developed in partnership with Great Wall and are based on a new platform designed to hit the sweet spot for practical real-world performance, reliability, and price. The Enigma line kicked off with the 850W unit and the Onyx line will initially be available in 650W and 750W models.
The main differences between the Enigma Series and the Onyx Series are listed in the table above. The Riotoro Onyx Series power supplies are certified to comply with the 80 Plus Bronze criteria for efficiency, come with semi-modular cables, and both use a quiet 120mm variable speed fan for cooling.
