PC’s are getting more power hungry with each new generation of hardware and the PSU is evolving to keep up with that demand. Currently the largest PSU’s are 1600W to 1800W, but Ultra Products is thinking bigger.

They are getting a new 2000W modular PSU ready with a footprint similar to that of the 1000W PC Power and Cooling model which is nearly twice as large as a typical ATX PSU. Ironically Ultra Products is quoted over at Guru3D as saying “"It's not so much that we believe personal computers today need as much as 2000W of power," explains George Ali, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Ultra Products. "In fact, most household circuits can't even provide the AC power this unit would require in order to put out 2000W of DC power. But there's the always-inevitable questions of 'Do I have enough power?' or 'Does my power supply have enough juice where my high end components need it.' That is why we have put together this 2000W unit; as the end all of power supplies as far as DC output goes. With as much as 1800W available on the 12V alone, there should be no concern whatsoever that there is enough power available for quad core, quad GPU or large drive arrays."Wow, it’s not often that a manufacturer can tell me hey, you don’t need this much power and you may not even be able to get 2000W with your wussy little AC outlet and yet I still drool over it. Modular design makes it even more appealing because any geek knows that having gobs of left over power cables inside your rig just isn’t cool. Story and image via Guru3D.
