February, 2007 - Thermaltake Technology, the world’s leading brand for high-end chassis and high-performance power supply, is launching world’s first 1200W as well as 1000W to its Toughpower line of high-grade and high-efficiency power supplies. The new additions are the responses to higher power demand from both ATI and Nvidia’s graphic card consumption that allows for unprecedented graphic realism and image quality. Today’s high-end graphic card will require as much as 300W of power alone and with the popularity of multi graphic card configurations, users are expected to allocate aside at least 600W just for graphic cards.



eading the way in innovation and technological trend, Toughpower 1000W and 1200W will both feature three industry’s first 8-pin PCI-E connecters as well as three original 6-pin PCI-E connectors configuration to support the Quad GPU system setup. The 8-pin PCI-E connector is the next generation standard power connector for both ATI and Nvidia high-end graphic cards; it is downward compatible with the existing 6-pin PCI-E connector with an 8 pin to 6 pin converter. Thus, even there are only 6-pin sockets available on the graphic cards, Toughpower 1000W/1200W can still run Quad GPU system with no problem.

Unlike competing power supplies with only one or two 12V rails, four dedicated 12V rails, tightly regulated voltage (±3%) and Active PFC found on Toughpower provides unparalleled reliability and stability. The use of industrial-grade voltage controller and on time control enables high-efficiency across all rails that exhibit up to 87% efficiency even under high-loading status; significantly lowering operating cost in addition to lower thermal overhead especially for user who operates PC continuously.

Toughpower 1000W and 1200W both complies with the most updated Intel ATX 12V V2.2 for desktop and EPS 12V V2.91 for workstation or server platform. On top of three 6-pin PCI-E and three 8-pin PCI-E connectors, eight SATA power connectors and eight Molex connectors presents full array of future hardware upgrades. Cable Management feature eliminates clutters inside the chassis for great system airflow and improved thermal management. Ultra-quiet dual ball bearing 14cm fan with automated thermal control only increases fan speed when needed and maintains lowest noise level during idle or low power usage status.

Over Voltage Protection (OVP), Over Current Protection (OCP), Short Circuit Protection (SCP) and No Load Operation Protection are all the standard safety protection features found on each and every one of Thermaltake power supplies.

Crazy. Computers shouldn't be needing that much power - unless they have a built in vacuum cleaner or oven.

Hmm... Crossfired R600 certed??? :D

And Jimmy, I agree. If they took time to make things more efficent (like amd) then we would not need 2 kw supplies.

Well a single R600 would take my 500W PSU down easy...so I will not be switching to that card, even if it is much faster than the 8800 GTX or cheap...the costs for powering such a beast are simply to high.

cheers

Intels are getting much more efficent as well, its really just the graphics world that's lagging in power efficency, and heat for that matter.

Intel has the crown now I believe, with some of the HE amd chips coming a close second.



While I completely agree that gpus need to get more efficient, I don't think they're as bad as lots of people think. Considering how many transistors go into it, and the raw power of some of them (very parallel architectures and lots of bandwidth make it easily outperform modern cpus in some applications), it's not all surprising that they run so hot.

Im picky. If I ever need a kilowatt psu, I will go with the company that first brought them to market, PC Power & Cooling. I had a TT 420w psu that would not let me oc' my 2400+ mobile to 250x12.5, while the trusty 300w FSP I had (it is still purring along in parents computer) would run at those specs. with out fail. So TT, eehhh.

Good gosh these are monster PSUs. I hope they arent long like the PC P&C. Those things are beasts to install.
