Products[edit]

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 Gaming[edit]

Antec entered the console gaming sector with the X-1 Cooler for the Xbox 1 in 2015 which received raving reviews from industry influencers and gamers alike. The cooler prevents the console from over-heating while in use and helps preserve the lifespan of the console.

P180 Case[edit]

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.
