Cooler Master Goes Big With Three New 1300 W Power Supplies

Based on three new power supplies from Cooler Master, it looks like we can expect some extremely power hungry GPU's this year, as the company has announced no less than three 1300 W power supplies. On the plus side, all three models are 80 Plus Platinum certified, so they'll at least be really power efficient. Interestingly, none of the three new models follow the ATX standard when it comes to physical size, as two use the SFX form factor, whereas the last one is too deep to meet even the large ATX PSU spec.

Starting with the big boy, the V1300 Platinum 30th Anniversary, which measures in at 190 x 150 x 86 mm (DxWxH) and is the only 1300 W model that works when plugged into a 110 V power socket. It's a fairly standard high-end power supply with a 135 mm FBD fan and fully modular cables, although the wires in the PCIe cables have been upgraded to 16 AWG to prevent current drop. It also has a switch for either single or multi-rail operation and can deliver 54 A per 12 V rail. It'll come with a 10 year warranty, although the pricing is unknown at this point in time.
