ThermalTake shows off 2000W PSU

Posted on Friday, March 07 2008 @ 19:40:36 CET by

Bit Tech saw 1500W and 2000W power supplies at ThermalTake's booth at CeBIT:
Inquiring about the potential hazard of overpowering the socket, the poor lass had to check the manual for which only the rated power usage for the 1500W was listed. After flicking through the pages we found it can suck down 120Amps of power, so a 2000W should require nothing short of a 160A!

Unfortunately on finding out this information and seeing my jaw hit the floor, she inquired, "Is that a lot?". I tried to put it down to the language barrier but it's still very worrying that Thermaltake seems unaware of the consequences of such a large PSU on a home user's power grid, let alone the cost of running it.

The reporter also spotted a new 1200W unit from SilverStone and a 1000W DarkPower Pro unit from BeQuiet.
