While it looks like the product has made an appearance on their blog as early as July, FSP Technology Inc. has just officially announced their FSP2000-A0AGPBI ATX power supply. If you’re attempting to parse the model number, then yes, the 2000 stands for 2000 watts. While it’s not a single-rail design, which would have been impressive, it can deliver six different streams of 12V@30A through sixteen 6- or 8-pin (PCI-E 6+2 pin) connectors.
At this point, you might be thinking: how can you deliver 2000W through a wall outlet? 15 amps through a 115-volt outlet has a theoretical maximum of about 1725W. Simple! Use a 230V outlet.
A better question is “Why would you drive eight dual-eight-pin GPUs?” The official answer is workstations, servers, and industrial power systems. The unofficial answer, especially considering their aforementioned blog post in July, is coin mining. Because of course it is. Of course it is.
As an added bonus, the FSP 2000W power supply is rated 80PLUS Platinum. It doesn’t look like FSP has announced pricing or availability yet, though.
