1,200W power supply

Thermaltake has launched two new power supplies in its Toughpower line, one of which is said the world's first 1,200W supply for desktop computers. Power is becoming an increasingly important issue for high-end users, since even non-professional processors and videocards can consume tremendous amounts of electricity. Both the 1,200 and 1,000W models support the ATX 12V 2.2 standard, and are recommended for quad-core systems such as AMD's Quad FX. The supplies also come with three six- and three eight-pin PCI-E connectors, the latter of which are useful for the latest cards from ATI and Nvidia, while remaining backwards-compatible using a converter. SATA and Molex connectors are present as well. Cooling comes from a built-in 5.5-inch fan that spools up only when excess heat is detected. No prices or release dates have been mentioned, but the new Toughpowers should soon be on sale from sites like Newegg.
