SilverStone's Strider Platinum lineup now includes 1000 and 1200 watt models with a depth of only 140 mm. These are both fully modular ATX PSUs, and 80 Plus Platinum certified.

The compact 140 mm depth is popular with small form-factor builds - and sometimes a requirement for a fully modular PSU like this depending on the enclosure. The power density is obviously getting really high for 2018, and 1200W is likely the highest you will find at 140 mm.

Pricing and release dates have not been revealed just yet for either power supply.

The obvious question: Why would you possibly need 1000 or 1200 watts in an SFF build?

Miners and all their hardware take up space, so they will go for any space savings and those new mining focused MBs can take more GPUs. Why who Else!

No you just may be able to sell you Polaris and Vega Used GPUs at a higher than MSRP to them Miners and they will gladly pay. It's good to see JHH over at Nvidia getting higher prices for his GPUs also, and Nvidia has more of them ROPs what Bubba gamer likes but the miners only care about them shader cores and whatever the highest hash rates that can produce.

Miners want the shaders to hash the bitcoins and gamers want ROPs to fling the frames and get Bubba gamer that ePeen FPS ego boost!

I suppose why not? A PSU is a component that can last multiple generations of PC builds. You may begin in an ATX system and then realize you wish you had something more portable and switch to ITX.

That said, there are situations where such power could be needed. Most times it involves extreme overclocking. And also who is to say what parts you will want to throw in your next build? Vega is a particularlly tricky card to power when overclocked. Average PSU load could be low, but that doesn't account for wattage spikes. The better ITX systems have ample options for cooling such as 240mm radiator support.
