Newegg, Rosewill Partner in Bringing Miners the PSUs They Deserve

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

Oh no not another product for mining. First gpu, then motherboards and now psu:kookoo:

Yeah i am not a fan of mining. Waste of power, hardware, more polution and just keep gpu prices to rize to a big annoyment for us gamers.

Mining sucks and i want to kick it out for good:nutkick:

I passed right alongside a marketing career, it seems =)

The pictures entered our inbox, I made the text as I went along according to their intention in sending it to our inbox. It was just a request if we could make a story on Newegg and Rosewill's collaboration.

Collaboration? Doesn't Newegg own Rosewill?

Just to come back to this. From an IT perspective, isn't it always better to eliminate single points of failure? Wouldn't it be the desire to have multiple smaller PSU's, instead of larger more monolithic PSU's to limit your downtime in the event you have a PSU failure? Better to have one PSU and 3 GPU's down, then one PSU and 6 of your GPU's (no idea how miners are calculating load against there cards and PSU's, but I am sure there is a metric once the bios mods and undervolting and all are done.).

Personally, I use the 700watt FSP "Twin" in my home server. This is my home server for serving, not mining. I haven't seen the light in mining (yet) it seems.

Now you too can invest $2000 in new hardware so you can make $5 per day mining while increasing your electrical bill by $10 per day.

If you were to unethically use someone else's power, like at work, or use solar panels with energy rebates it might make sense.

But I guess the only thing I think miners deserve for a good idea with no security and a bias for dark web transactions is a PSU that dies and takes hardware with it.

First the RGB, now everyone is rushing to the crypto-mining hardware bandwagon.

Personally I'm not a fan of mining. It consumes so much electricity that it's become a major source for environmental polution. The crypto currencies are unregulated and often end up being used for money laundering or supporting terrorism. It's a time bomb for global economy.

I wonder how long this mining craze would last. What would be the next move from major hardware manufacturers that support this?

It's a continuation of globalization which in itself isn't a bad thing, except the lack of regulation and import of dangerous items, and the easily manipulated system means no one is accountable, and the illegal and moral issues it gives rise to.


Want to buy guns for a war with money meant for humanitarian needs... wash it out through untraceable crypto. It's no different than the CIA trading drugs for black op money, while prosecuting the drug seekers. Want to buy a sex slave, crypto washes that right out. Want to pay off a assassination hit, crypto dye.

Every other major currency has a backer, not by choice, so how long until someone comes up with a military to protect or enforce the crypto currency laws as they see fit.

There is already talk of being able to break the system once the transaction backlog gets big enough to inject some fraudulent transactions and perform the approval as well, hell, some are suggesting inserting penny catching for rounding errors or inserting complete fraudulent transactions into the system.

They have been for a while.

And it's not a reason to dislike mining. It's a reason to dislike the mining craze...

and not to worry, it's in its death throes anyhow.

Uh, no offense, but I really gotta [CITATION NEEDED] this bit. AFAIK, the only proven attack against crypto is the well-known 51% attack, and we passed any risk of that happening nearly 5 years ago.

Funny, back when I mined my most reliable "cheap&efficient" PSU was a Rosewill Fortress 750W. I had around 8.

There are many more, and all it takes is hardware errata for larger issues to take hold. See Zbuffer fighting or fixed point rounding https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fixed-point_arithmetic

It compounds the problem with varying exchange rates to hard currency.

To be fair, psu is probably the best thing to market. The rest is unpredictable. Who knows what new coin craze will happen, what tech it needs, etc.. But power is generic and always will be needed.

Ah. You are talking about exploiting poor math at the point of exchange. That isn't really "hacking crypto," but I'll concede the outcome is the same.
