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.

  • Dimensions: 150 x 86 x 220 mm (W x H x D)
  • Fan: 140 mm DBB(automatic control)
  • Colour: Black (power supply, fan)
  • Fully Modular Design
  • Efficiency: max. 94% (230V), 80 Plus Platinum certificate
  • Form Factor: ATX12V 2.2 / EPS12V 2.92
  • Power: 2000W
  • Active PFC
  • + 3.3V: 24 A
  • + 5V: 24 A
  • + 3.3V & + 5V combined: 120 W
  • + 12V: 1999.2 W / 166.6 A
  • -12V: 6 W / 0.5 A
  • + 5VSB: 15 W / 3.0 A

All that power doesn't come cheap, as you might expect. In the UK the SuperFlower Leadex Platinum 8Pack Edition commands a retail price of £349.99 exclusively at Overclockers. Interested?

Just in time for the new AMD releases (just kidding!)

WTH does anyone need with a 2KW PC PSU?!?!? Are new PCs coming with integrated kettles?
Most components are consuming less and less power so is there gonna be anyone that needs this? Are there any specs for efficiency? This might help people understand why this has been made.

The only thing I can see it being useful for is a bitcoin mining rig of some kind.
Reliable and smooth 1kW + power on the 12V line? The PSU is sold through a builder that offers a 4 x GTX980 computer.

It might be handy for the rest of us as well though, you never know when you will need to do some resistance soldering or arc welding :)
Dual 15 core Xeons and 36 drives in RAID 10 with quad R9 290X.

I wonder if that would consume anywhere near 2kW…
