With the lure of multiple graphics cards for gaming on spanned monitors, and wonderfully overclocked processors to crunch at higher speeds, we can often overlook the need of keeping such impressive computer systems stably powered, and more efficiently as possible. Power supplies are the unsung heroes of modern premium systems, whirring quietly while keeping things running smoothly, allowing us to do more and more these days.
Premium power supplies in the kilowatt+ range are a bit of a rarity, particularly to us mere mortals on budgets. But for the elite who want (and need?) such powerful units, there is the allure of “bigger is better”. That may be the case, and today we’re looking at one such unit that may satisfy the hunger: the Enermax MaxRevo 1500W.
That’s a beastly amount of power available, 1500W, if you have need of such a behemoth. An 80 Plus Gold rating helps keeps things efficient, though it could be argued that if you’re in the market for a 1500W power supply then you can afford the electricity bill that follows. Regardless, power supplies in this upper echelon are something special, and Enermax is known for creating some premium power supplies.
Coming with a price tag of $340, the Enermax MaxRevo 1500W definitely brings a premium cost, but does it have the top performance to match? Let’s find out.
