Submission + - New 10,500 watt Power Supply is Hot!

PowerfulPete writes: "Literally! And it catches the test bench on fire! PC Perspective has tested a Miller Electric XMT 300 unit that produces 10,500 watts of electrical power. Sure, it weighs it an nearly 80 pounds, requires a 240 VAC line and costs over $3,000, BUT it also can produces up to 375A on the 12V line! That's more than enough to power a dozen or so PCs! To connect to the computer, a "power distribution module" mounts inside the PC where the normal ATX power supply would go."

Machines certainly can solve problems, store information, correlate, and play games -- but not with pleasure. -- Leo Rosten
