Computer hardware is becoming increasingly power-efficient to the point where most enthusiasts can get away with no more than a 500W power supply for a powerful single-GPU system, or a 700W power supply for a dual-GPU system. At the same time power-supply technology is becoming increasingly more advanced, and it's now possible to create efficient power supplies that can deliver gargantuan capacities of 1500W and beyond.
High-wattage power supplies tend to be limited to a niche market of hardcore overclockers or consumers with quad-GPU systems. That niche is exactly who Superflower is targeting with its latest release: the Leadex Platinum 8Pack Edition 2000W power supply. 8Pack, for those who don't know, is the resident overclocking expert for UK retailer Overclockers.
Based on an in-house design the SuperFlower Leadex Platinum 8Pack Edition is the world's first 2000W consumer power-supply unit. SuperFlower hasn't skimped on anything to reach that monstrous capacity, mind, as the unit features 80 Plus Platinum certification, all-Japanese capacitors, a fully-modular design and hybrid fan operation.
