FREMONT, Calif., Feb. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Corsair(R) http://www.corsair.com , a worldwide leader in high performance computer and flash memory products, today announced the HX1000W power supply unit (PSU), the world's first 1000 watt PSU to be certified under the newly-created 3-way NVIDIA(R) SLI(R) Technology Certification Program from NVIDIA Corporation. The Corsair HX1000W will be debuted at the CeBIT 2008 show next week in Hanover, Germany on Corsair's stand (Booth 40, Hall 21).

The HX1000W is the latest addition to Corsair's award-winning HX-series of modular power supplies for the gaming and enthusiast community. Featuring a twin-transformer, true dual-rail design, DC-to-DC conversion and high-quality solid state capacitors, the HX1000W delivers the rock-solid performance and stability required for high-end enthusiast gaming systems.

Features of the HX1000W include: -- Designed for multi-core CPUs and multi-GPU systems -- Guaranteed to deliver its full 1000W output at 50 degrees C operating temperature -- Industrial grade solid-state capacitors rated at 105 degrees C for uncompromised performance -- True independent dual +12V rail design 140mm temperature-controlled fan for quiet, efficient cooling

With Active Power Factor Correction (PFC) and 80% or more energy efficiency across a wide range of loading conditions, the HX1000W PSU generates minimal heat during operation. In addition, the high quality, thermally-controlled double ball-bearing 140mm fan provides effective cooling and whisper quiet operation.

"Having the first 1000 watt power supply that is certified for 3-way NVIDIA(R) SLI(R) Technology is a great honor," said Jack Peterson, VP Corporate Marketing. "The fact that the HX1000W meets the 3-way NVIDIA SLI Technology specification at a wattage rating that is up to 30% lower than some of our competitors highlights Corsair's superior engineering expertise and world-class product development efforts," continued Peterson. "Clearly, this is the ultimate power supply for enthusiasts and demanding customers who want the very best hardware in their gaming rigs."

The Corsair HX1000W power supply unit (CMPSU-1000HX) will be available in late March through Corsair's authorized distributors, resellers and e-tailers worldwide, priced at $279.99 USD MSRP.
