Hexus spotted the SilverStone Strider ST1500 power supply at Computex, this model can deliver 1500W of continuous power and has a 80Plus Silver rating. This means this unit has an efficiency of at least 85 percent at 20 percent load and full load, and at least 88 percent efficiency at 50 percent load. The ST1500 is cooled by a 135mm fan and has a fully modular cable design. Pricing of this unit will be around $450.
Completely modular in design, the package has, cable-wise, four eight-pin PCIe, eight six-pin PCIe, and 12 SATA connectors, along with a bunch of Molexes and main 24-pin and eight-pin plugs.
The enormous wattage is put to good use, providing eight 12V rails (25A limit each) with a combined 110A, and we were a little surprised to learn that the ST1500 had passed the 80PLUS Silver certification with 85-88 per cent efficiency over a wide-ranging load, although it's yet to appear in the records.
