WOW... four seperate 12V Rails for a total of 66AMPS HOLY $H|+!!
Now that is some power....
Yeah, pretty insane! Especially the line that said today's top of the market video card only uses 285w of power!
how else will i power my death ray/ gaming machine.
/must remember to build EMR shielding inside of case.
Hopefully they have enough airflow to keep that bad boy cool, or include a cupholder to keep the coffee hot.
wonder if a 1000 watt psu humms..
Video cards consuming that much power is already insane. :angry:
I assume you mean EMI?
electro magnetic interference?
Damn skippy it would keep your coffee hot!
What video card takes up that much?
The newer ones are dropping back down from the last generation.
I would HOPE they meant an SLI set-up and the total power consumption.
EDIT: As seen below even the last generation in singles dont take up much power AT ALL....
located below is the highest I found for ATI...
my electricity bill has already gone up by 10-15% in the last quarter to 8th Aug and my new machine was only completed in june!
Luckily, I have all utilities included within my apartment. When I moved out of my house, my parents said the electric bill went down about $125 a month...
heh, just had to...
With kryptonite :dead:
but see... im superman that would kill me as well.
wat comp uses that much power, perhaps turning it off at night and when you go to work (if you work), would drastically reduce the bills.
Well I have 6 machines, and they are never off When I lived at home I only had 2 machines on all the time, now that I don't have to worry about it, they party alllll the time! w00t!
Electro Magnetic Radiation
its really not that great. Each 12v rail only has 18A so its equivalent to a 250-300W psu on each output. To be any use it really needs to have 20A or more on each output.
