Super Flower Intros 1600 W 80-Plus Titanium PSU

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 16 comments

Super Flower's new Titanium PSUs can push up to 1600 W, beating the competition by a good 100 watt margin.

Editor's Note: While Computex took place last week and all of the news announcements are behind us, we're still sorting through hundreds of in-person meetings and demonstrations, picking out just a few more of the most interesting items we saw up close.

Super Flower showcased its new 1600 W 80-Plus Titanium power supply at Computex 2014 in Taipei last week.

This power supply comes in response to Corsair's 1500 W Titanium AX1500i PSU, and is now the world's most powerful PSU, with an 80-Plus Titanium certificate, according to a Super Flower spokesperson.

Super Flower has built the power supply to be fully modular, so all the cables can be removed as desired. It also comes with a massive fan. With the high efficiency rating of around 94 percent, it won't have to work very hard to keep itself cool.

Super Flower is also the ODM (Original Design Manufacturer) for a number of other vendors, so we will be seeing this same power supply underneath other companies' logos. For example, EVGA's 1600 W Titanium PSU is this exact unit, with nothing more than a couple of aesthetic changes.

Unfortunately, pricing for the unit was not available. It will hit the market in the coming months in both white and black.

    Unless you are running quad GPUs, this is overkill.

    That's the G2 (gold). There is also P2 (platinum), and the T2 (titanium) based on the PSU in this newsfeed:

    Any word on price for this or the AXi? I'm glad there is competition. FSP needs to get off their butts and make something epic like this.

    I can't imagine many people needing to push 1600W let alone 1000W.

    Two Titans consume less than 500W full tilt. Like redgarl said "Unless you are running quad GPUs, this is overkill."

    And if you can afford four Titans, you got too much f'***ing money. /jealous

    It's for when people have an FX-9590 and two R9 295s in quadfire.

    Can I plug my dryer in to this out of the box or do I need to buy a separate cable?

    Add a large WC loop with pumps in series and push/pull config 480mm rads. That'll increase wattage used.

    The financial outlay you need to have spent on any PC to justify purchasing a PSU anywhere close to 1600W surely pigeon holes the purchaser into cloud cuckoo land...no GPU/CPU configuration scales well enough to justify this.

    This power range and effciency is also good for GPGPU compute such as folding and mining farms. Even a few % goes a long way at that wattage.

    If any does push this to max, you are getting close to what the household circuit can handle (I think 15 amps for a single outlet unless specially wired i.e. garage, kitchen, bathroom)

    If your neighbors' lights are dimming, you are doing it right :D
