ProductsEdit

Antec Mobile Products (a.m.p)Edit

In October 2012, Antec launched Antec Mobile Products (A.M.P.), a wholly owned subsidiary of Antec that includes consumer electronic products designed in California. The new product range includes a line of Bluetooth audio devices, USB-powered battery packs and mobile chargers with clean and modern design features.

Console GamingEdit

Antec entered the console gaming sector with the X-1 Cooler[3] for the Xbox One in 2015 which received positive reviews.[citation needed] The cooler prevents the console from over-heating while in use and helps preserve the lifespan of the console.

P180 CaseEdit

In 2005, Antec launched the P180 case which changed the PC case industry. The case was well-designed in terms of aesthetics and performance. It provided a sleek look while providing great thermal ventilation and a super quiet system. In June 2018, Antec introduced four new chassis break covers named as, P5, P100Evo,[4] Antec krypton[5] and project X.[6]
