    Thermaltake brought out its big guns in the field of PSUs at this year's Computex, with the Toughpower XT GOLD 1475W. As the name suggests, it's 80 Plus Gold efficiency rating compliant. Mind you, 1475W isn't its peak power, but continuous power guaranteed 24x7 @ 50°C. Further, the PSU uses a single massive 12V rail design to deliver that kind of power. The Toughpower XT GOLD 1475W is partially modular, with an angled 24-pin ATX connector and two 8-pin EPS connectors being fixed, and the rest let up for cable management. Thermaltake will back these beasts with 7 year warranty once released.

    Pretty soon they will be hitting 2Kw and recommending enthusiasts install dedicated 240V high efficiency electrical sockets.

    or to move to australia, where our sockets are 240v/10a from the get go. (at least, since i see that rating on power boards and extension leads)

    I'm too afraid of all the crocs and sharks, and the even more sinister drop bears!

    I'd be more worried about the ants and the box jellies. No, this won't be standard. We've already had 1600-2000w power supplies, they didn't do well. We're seeing a minor resurgence in high power units due to A) efficiency increases, more watts for less socket power and B) the lack of die shrinks but desire for better performance giving us abominations like the 590/6990. With 28nm demand should be halved, which is a lot since sales volumes are already low on these units.

    Call me when it can start a car.

    Quick bit of math:
    1375W/12V=115A, though since it's likely not rated that way I'd guesstimate it's more like 1200W/12V=100A. A typical small engine car uses around 150-200A when warm and probably 300A when cold. So I need a 3600W PSU to start my car. :D

    I wonder what kind of temps it puts out in normal use. It might run pretty cool.

    only supports up to 3 way sli/Xfire. What the hell do you need for 4 way??

    PS. We don't worry about the crocs, jelly fish, sharks n snakes. They only eat tourists. :)

    Better yet move to Hong Kong with 220V/13A sockets :laugh:

    No croc in HK, and all the Sharks became Shark-fin soup :shadedshu
    "In capitalist Hong Kong, you eats sharks" :p

    Zubasa, you may be on to something. Maybe I'll have to add a trip to the far east into this years budget...

    Sorry for all the off topic stuff lol
