Mining is a billion unit business by any metric you use: be it in hardware components sold, dollars generated for miners, and energy consumption, mining is one of the most florescent businesses in recent years. Mining around the globe consumes more power than many countries by themselves would
; moves huge amounts of hardware through both sea and air
; and is one of the more divisive technological developments of the decade, with proponents claiming it's the reinvention of the economic wheel, and others defining it as a hoax, a purposeless, virtual fallacy with no added value other than that which can be attributed to a pyramid scheme. However, no matter which side of the fence you stand in, there's one thing both miners and users usher in: enough PSU power to enable them to attain their particular use cases with both high-efficiency and peace of mind.
To that effect, Newegg and Rosewill are catering particularly to miners with their joint campaign for the latter's high-wattage PSUs. Under the "Bitcoin Miners Power Ups" branding (which seems a bit limited, since Bitcoin is hardly the most popular cryptocurrency outside mining farms), Newegg is promoting Rosewill's products with special promotions and a campaign especially fit for mining purposes: high wattage, high efficiency, and 24/7 reliability.
The "mining crowd" options start at a usually ludicrous 1000 W, which is a capacity that is likely slightly less than double what an average, gaming-focused user would need to properly drive their system. At 1000 W, Rosewill's options stand in their HIVE, PHOTON and Quark Series, starting at a reasonable $139.99 for the lowest-end HIVE PSU. Rosewill and Newegg are also pushing their 1200 W offerings, through Rosewill's Quark and PHOTON series, while also offering a fully modular PSU with TITANIUM Plus certification for $289.99. With Rosewill's Hercules 1600 W PSU being out of stock due to its popularity with users, Rosewill's current cream of the crop in terms of maximum watts delivered stands with their TOKAMAK 1500 W modular PSU, which also carries an efficiency-guaranteeing 80 Plus TITANIUM certification. This one will likely run closer towards breaking the bank, with its $359.99 price-tag, but if you're the designated use-case for these PSUs and use your rigs for mining, you'll likely feel comfortable with these prices. After all, it's said that it will just take a little patience and market good fortune to recoup your investment.Source: Newegg
