A few days ago NVIDIA released the fastest single GPU graphics card in the market called the TITAN X a real beast featuring a massive 12GB’s of onboard VRAM memory, 3072 CUDA cores, 192 TMUs, 96 ROPs, 384-bit wide memory interface and a TDP of 250W. Luckily although a few years back such performance would be far more power hungry today even 4 of these beasts would require a total output of roughly 1000W. Of course although these power requirements are indeed very low for such cards we need not forget the rest of the system components so adding those as well means that you’d certainly need around 1500W to be on the safe side. Unfortunately the market is not really filled with 1500W (1.5KW) power supply units but if you can afford to get 4 ultra-high end graphics cards then you shouldn’t have a problem finding a suitable one and the Strider Gold model by SilverStone which we have here with us today could be the right one for the job.
