    Developed to power next-generation graphics and high-performance servers, the Turbo-Cool 1KW from PC Power & Cooling will ship worldwide in September 2005. With a form factor that fits most ATX cases, the ground-breaking power supply delivers 1000 watts (one kilowatt) of continuous power with a peak power of 1100 watts. The unit will retail for $489.00 US and carries a 5-year warranty.

    The upscale technology behind the Turbo-Cool 1KW was first introduced by PC Power & Cooling in its Turbo-Cool 850 SSI power supply, the industry's current performance leader. Released in February 2005, the 850 SSI has been recognized for excellence by NVIDIA corporation, Tom's Hardware, Maximum PC, and many other high-performance experts.

    In order to generate one kilowatt of continuous power from the existing 850 SSI platform, the Turbo-Cool 1KW's power modules were engineered for greater thermal efficiency and key components throughout the unit were upgraded to handle the additional current. The result is an EPS12V/SSI/SLI power supply with unprecedented output (66 amps total on the +12VDC rails) in a form factor that fits most ATX cases.

    If your computer needs that much power you need to consider a new hobby.

    And the electronics companies need to start thinking of making more electrically efficient designs.

    You can probably see the neighbour's lights dim for a bit when you switch on that PSU :D

    Well, it was bound to happen, I still remember when a 100W PSU was more than good enough about 10 years ago...
    Even though both AMD and Intel are trying to get more processing cycles per watt from their processors, companies like nVidia and Ati (and perhaps AGEIA in the future :confused: :p) will make sure PSUs such as this one become mainstream some years from now...

    I still think its overkill, like people run two 6800 ultras and alll the high-end fixings and they are fine with a 600watt. But as W1zz said, great to brag about e-penis lol.

    Wow, that's all I can say, is just wow. I can't comprehend a need for that much power. Perhaps some outrageous PC with dual CPUs, dual phase change coolers, four hard drives in raid 10, two graphics cards, etc. But still, who needs that? I'm very happy with my psu, I don't see myself upgrading it for a few years unless something tragic happens.
