Corsair Announces AX1500i, the World’s Most Technologically Advanced and Efficient PSU

Corsairآ®, the most awarded PC power supply brand in the world1, today announced the AX1500i Digital ATX power supply. The PSU’s digitally-controlled circuitry delivers 1500 watts of ultra-stable power with efficiency that goes beyond 80 PLUSTM Platinum, making the AX1500i the most technologically advanced, energy efficient, and customizable power supply available for extreme PC enthusiasts. The AX1500i’s groundbreaking efficiency meets the current draft for ATX 115 Volt 80 PLUS Titanium for consumer PSUs.

The AX1500i's second generation digital architecture enables the PSU to consistently deliver up to 1500 watts of power with class-leading Titanium energy efficiency levels of up to 94%. The DSP-controlled circuitry of the PSU allows it to consistently deliver exceptionally stable voltages along with amazingly low ripple and noise. Tremendous power reserves combined with a vast array of cabling options enables the AX1500i to power heavily overclocked PC systems with up to four graphics cards in NVIDIAآ® SLIآ™ or AMD CrossFireXآ™ configurations with headroom to spare. The AX1500’s leading performance is possible thanks to a streamlined component count and circuit-board layout made possible by the DSP-based design. The AX1500i’s high efficiency results in reduced heat, allowing the PSU to operate in silent Zero RPM Fan Mode until the load reaches 450 watts. A custom-designed fluid dynamic bearing 140mm fan, specifically designed for low-noise operation, allows the PSU to run quietly even when running at full 1500 watt power output.
