    Developed to power next-generation graphics and high-performance servers, the Turbo-Cool 1KW from PC Power & Cooling will ship worldwide in September 2005. With a form factor that fits most ATX cases, the ground-breaking power supply delivers 1000 watts (one kilowatt) of continuous power with a peak power of 1100 watts. The unit will retail for $489.00 US and carries a 5-year warranty.

    The upscale technology behind the Turbo-Cool 1KW was first introduced by PC Power & Cooling in its Turbo-Cool 850 SSI power supply, the industry's current performance leader. Released in February 2005, the 850 SSI has been recognized for excellence by NVIDIA corporation, Tom's Hardware, Maximum PC, and many other high-performance experts.

    In order to generate one kilowatt of continuous power from the existing 850 SSI platform, the Turbo-Cool 1KW's power modules were engineered for greater thermal efficiency and key components throughout the unit were upgraded to handle the additional current. The result is an EPS12V/SSI/SLI power supply with unprecedented output (66 amps total on the +12VDC rails) in a form factor that fits most ATX cases.

    I think theres going to be a few electrifications soon.

    As power requirements rise, as do powers supplies themselves, eventually it'll get to the point where, if you touch a live wire in a PC, you could die!

    Well, at 12V and high amps I think you'll more likely get a bad burn rather than getting electrocuted. :)

    with energy prices going through the roof as they are, I hope it comes with solar panels or a small nuclear reactor.
