Is there a new 445/450 diode?

I have not been able to get a reply from this seller and the pulsed ready made units I thought were 44/06 diodes simply pulsed, but I see the odd notches and big window in the supposedly new diode and wonder if there's not something new around.



Has anyone pulse driven a 44/06 diode past 10 peak watts?

Well, I guess it's just wishful thinking.

I suppose it's time to cube combine some beams, maybe that will get the new diode train -a- rolling.

But if anyone has any speculations I'd love to hear them.

The single diode seems way over priced for what you get. I've been seeing the so called 17000 mW engraver by Aptlightingworld. They have been pushing these for weeks now and in CW it is actually claimed to be <8 watts. Seems over priced too.
