Thermaltake Unveils Toughpower Titanium 1500W PSU

Thermaltake unveiled its flagship power supply, the Toughpower Titanium 1500W. As its name might suggest, the PSU boasts of 80 Plus Titanium efficiency rating, and offers 1500W of power. That's enough to drive gaming PCs with four high-end graphics cards, or two dual-GPU ones. This unit features a single massive +12V rail design. It also features fully-modular cabling, with sleeved cables, Japan-made innards, and a 140 mm temperature-controlled fan, which spools down at low loads.

EVGA Unveils a Trio of 1600W PSUs

EVGA unveiled no less than three new 1600W power supplies at Computex, including the Supernova 1600 G2 (recently announced), the Supernova 1600 T2, and the Supernova 1600 P2. Their model names should be a dead giveaway on how the three differ from each other. While the 1600 G2 lives up to 80 Plus Gold efficiency standards, the 1600 P2 scores 80 Plus Platinum, and the 1600 T2 80 Plus Titanium. The three feature nearly identical power-distribution diagrams, feature-sets; although we're not sure if the P2 and T2 translate their higher efficiency into more output connectors. Either of the three should be good enough for systems with four R9 290X, or two R9 295X2 graphics cards; but we guess the 1600 P2 and 1600 T2 should appeal to professional overclockers who also plan to throw 150W TDP Core i7-5960X "Haswell-E" into the mix.

Cooler Master Designs PSU that Talks Directly with Your Smartphone

In a bid to take on Corsair's AXi and HXi line of PSUs that can interface with your PC over USB, letting you monitor and manage some of their specs over Corsair Link software, Cooler Master is giving final touches to its own line of high-end smart PSUs, beginning with the Digital 1200. Cooler Master's unique selling point here is Bluetooth direct access. The PSU is outfitted with a WLAN module of its own, letting your smartphone or tablet access it over Bluetooth. Cooler Master will have PSU monitoring and configuration apps on Google Play and the App Store. The app lets you monitor power consumption, efficiency, and temperatures, and tweak PSU fan speeds on the fly. The Digital 1200, as its name suggests, is a 1200-Watt PSU that boasts of 80 Plus Titanium efficiency. It features fully modular cabling, with enough wiring to drive gaming PC builds with 2 to 3 graphics cards in multi-GPU configurations. This PSU's most obvious advantage over Corsair Link, is its lack of dependency on your OS, and stability of your system.

Corsair AX1500i Digital Power Supply Now Available

Corsair, the most awarded PC power supply brand in the world, today announced the availability of the much-anticipated AX1500i Digital ATX power supply from www.corsair.com. Using advanced digitally-controlled circuitry to deliver ultra-stable power at over 94% efficiency, the AX1500i is the first 1500 watt PSU to meet the ultra-efficient 80 PLUS Titanium standard. The AX1500i will also be available from retailers in late May.

Using Corsair's second-generation digital architecture, the AX1500i uses a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) to control power output, resulting in tighter DC voltage output regulation and superior stability for your valuable PC's components. The AX1500i's incredible efficiency also results in greatly reduced heat, allowing the PSU to operate in a truly silent Zero-RPM fan mode at loads of up to 450 W. Even when delivering its maximum 1500 W of power, a high-quality 140 mm Dynamic Fluid Bearing (DFB) fan allows the AX1500i to operate quietly.

Corsair AX1500i Bags 80 Plus Titanium Certification

Corsair's upcoming flagship power supply, the 1500-Watt AX1500i, which debuted at this year's International CES, qualified for the coveted 80 Plus Titanium efficiency rating, which is a notch above 80 Plus Platinum. The unit should be most efficient when plugged into 230V AC lines, but was tested on a 115V AC line. It was tested to offer 91.23% efficiency at 10% load, 92.63% efficiency at 20% load, 94.04% efficiency at 50% load, and 91.34% efficiency at 100% load, staying above 90% at all test scenarios. The fully modular PSU offers a boat-load of power connectors, and should drive R9 290X 4-way CrossFireX setups with 220W TDP FX-9590 CPUs, without breaking a sweat. It supports Corsair LINK, giving you a degree of control and monitoring over the PSU's vitals. The AX1500i is expected to hit shelves later this year, priced at US $450.

Super Flower Shows Off First 80 Plus Titanium PSU

Thought 80 Plus Platinum was the pinnacle of PSU efficiency? Think again. 80 Plus Titanium is where it's at. Applicable only in regions with 220~230VAC domestic power, 80 Plus Titanium requires a PSU to offer at least 94 percent efficiency at 20 percent load, at least 96 percent efficiency at 50 percent load, and at least 91 percent efficiency at 100 percent load. Currently, just 8 PSUs went under 80 Plus certification, because only server-grade PSUs could earn it. Super Flower unveiled what is perhaps the first consumer PSU to do it, which it's yet to name. The PSU is 80 Plus Titanium certified under 220~230VAC, and at least 80 Plus Platinum certified under 100~120VAC.

Several of Super Flower's new 80 Plus Platinum-certified PSUs are scraping 80 Plus Titanium efficiency levels, although they're not quite there. These units feature an 80 Plus Platinum badge with a ">92% at 50% load" marking, denoting efficiency levels that get very close to 80 Plus Titanium. In any case, those are some excellent efficiency numbers being offered. A star-attraction at Super Flower's booth is the Leadex Platinum 1000W, a fully-modular PSU that is advertised to offer over 94% efficiency at 50 percent load.
