Introduction

With the lure of dual graphics cards and wonderfully overclocked processors, we understand the need for more efficient power supplies that offer more horsepower, and oftentimes those in the kilowatt+ range. Units in this segment are strong enough to power the most demanding systems, and the need for stable power is critical when dealing with rigs that likely have components worth thousands of dollars.

We’ve seen 80Plus Bronze certified units become the absolute minimum requirement for modern systems; in fact, they’re nothing to brag about. At the upper echelon of the pricing levels, we see a few Platinum-rated power supplies. Those are typically very expensive and geared toward very high-end system builds. For something just a bit more modest, there are Gold-rated units, though they’re certainly not slouches by any stretch.

Thermaltake is known for some premium power supplies, and the one we’re examining today is no different: the Toughpower XT Gold 1475W. It’s a beast of a unit, with an enormous amount of available power, so despite a lack of 80Plus Platinum, it’s still to be considered a very premium unit.

Coming with a price tag of $329, the Thermaltake Toughpower XT Gold 1475W definitely brings a premium price tag, but does it have the top performance to match? Let’s find out.
