Thats right, just been trolling slashdot.

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!




In fact, other than rocking up a huge electricity bill, it’s hard to see how you’re ever going to need 1000W inside your machine. Unless you’re a modding freak with five SATA drives, loads of lighting, fans and a pair of 7800s inside your machine with a kettle, electric fire and table saw attached to the USB you have to wonder why you'd need a 1000W PSU… but of course, you could just be future proofing, or compensating for something…

I'd buy it for a reasonable price.

Haha, that's pointless for 99% of all users, and 100% of all home users. Looks like something Descent would buy for e-penis++ e-cred.

LMFOA @ jung!

I need a much bigger power supply for my computer right now. My video card (nVidia 6800 Ultra) uses two 12v plugs, I have two HDs, and a DVD burner. Not enough power. :(

Yeah but it'd break and then he'd claim it was a pirated copy from Gadzukistan.
