FSP is well-known for high-quality moderately-priced energy provides however will not be significantly recognized for high-wattage items. Ultimately yr’s Computex the corporate demonstrated a PSU that would output 1400 W peak with liquid cooling for players and this yr it showcased its first 2000 W PSU for different market segments.
Cryptocurrency mining is opening up new enterprise alternatives normally and for makers specifically. Energy provides for mining are a very good instance of such new alternatives. Earlier this week we reported a few 3000 W mining PSU from Qdion, FSP’s entry-level model. Along with the three kW beast, FSP will supply a much less excessive 2 kW PSU designed with mining in thoughts, however which will even enchantment to house owners of high-end desktops as a consequence of options it helps.
FSP’s Cannon 2000 W PSU (FSP2000-50AGPBI) is available in customary 200&instances;150&instances;86 mm enclosure and is compliant with the ATX 12V v2.Four in addition to EPS v2.92 specs. The ability provide makes use of Japanese capacitors and has a 135 mm FDB fan with an “clever fan management,” one thing that isn’t normally present in PSUs for mining, however which is widespread for desktop/workstation techniques. The PSU can be outfitted with two Four+Four CPU energy connectors and thus can deal with dual-socket techniques (once more, 2P motherboards usually are not used for mining). It’s noteworthy that the FSP2000-50AGPBI doesn’t carry any 80Plus badge, however FSP says that the unit complies with the 80Plus Platinum emblem and is 92% environment friendly beneath excessive masses. If that is true and FSP can get the badge, this would be the world’s first 2000 W PSU to get it (in truth, there aren’t any 2 kW PSUs which have any 80Plus badges). Not like the aforementioned Qdion mining energy provide, FSP’s 2 kW is supplied with all the usual safety mechanisms we normally on desktop PSUs, together with safety towards overcurrent, overvoltage, overpower, beneath voltage, brief circuit, and over temperature.
Shifting on to connectors. FSP’s Cannon is supplied with 18 Eight-pin PCIe energy connectors and may feed no less than 9 graphics playing cards. In the meantime, the unit additionally has 16 SATA energy plugs, 4 Molex connectors, and even one Four-pin FDD connector. Whereas it’s apparent that no desktop will ever want 18 PCIe energy plugs, no mining system will ever want 16 SATA energy connectors, which as soon as once more proves ‘mining + HEDT’ nature of the PSU. To make the issues much more desktop pleasant, the PSU is absolutely modular and the pointless PCIe cables will simply not go right into a desktop.
Having talked about quite a few instances that FSP’s Cannon 2000 W is aimed not solely at mining rigs but additionally on high-end desktops, it’s price describing what sort of HEDT may require a 2 kW PSU. Effectively, a closely overclocked one that includes one of many upcoming Excessive Workstation-class CPUs from AMD or Intel (TDP grows exponentially with severe overclocking), two high-end graphics playing cards, a great deal of reminiscence, quite a few high-capacity PCIe three.zero x4 SSDs (they’re fairly energy hungry when configured for efficiency), a number of exhausting drives, and all the opposite elements. Even for such a system, a 2000 W PSU goes to supply a number of headroom, however that is okay for a HEDT normally.
FSP’s Cannon 2000 W PSU is already listed on the corporate’s web site, so count on it to hit the market within the coming quarters (technically, it’s accessible for order now, however there’s a scarcity of elements + sea freight might take a few months). The worth of the product is unknown, however 2 kW energy provides are removed from low-cost, suppose north of $500.
