Good lord... :eek:

Enermax, those crazy power supply dudes have gone power mad with their latest bit of kit, the Galaxy. Set to be available in the UK from around October, the Galaxy is the first PSU to the retail market claiming to be able to deliver 1000W… yes, you read that right, 1000W.

In final production at the time of writing, the two samples in the photos are engineering samples so we couldn’t get out hands on one for testing, but having run the figures past Rys, they add up to just a little over 1000W output, drawing 1400W from the mains… so no need for a dimmer switch in the lounge anymore!

/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.

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....

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...

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.

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.
