[TPU] Corsair AX1500i Officially Titanium Rated - Page 3

Is this thing going to suffer the issue like on the ax1200i where the fan randomly ramps up to its max speed in "hybrid mode"? The fan profile is really bad on the current I series and the semi-passive mode is wonky.

Titanium isn't easy to make, which is part of the reason for the expense. Also, this is a digital power supply with full data monitoring via Corsair Link, which adds some cost as well. Not to mention the overkill on the electrical specifications, fan type, noise levels, etc.

I can say without a doubt this is the best PSU we've ever made. I can also say that nearly nobody needs 1500W, so we're looking to bring that technology down in wattage eventually. But there's nothing else like this one right now.

My Seasonic 1250W is on it's last leg. It sputters and gives off static noises when I pull over 1100W. Depending on the noise level of the fan the AX1500i might be a candidate for replacement. I run all gentle typhoons at < 1150 rpm so I've got a nearly silent system. Is the AX1500i's fans going to be louder than those at 50% and 75% load?

I didn't know either, until Computex 2013! http://www.techpowerup.com/185028/super-flower-shows-off-first-80-plus-titanium-psu.html

No, we fixed that on RM series and it'll be fixed on all future products going forward.

I have no need for something like this, but I hope JonnyGuru get their hands on one soon. For interesting reading. tongue.gif

Is there a smaller PSU coming with 80+ Titanium? Maybe a new AX 860i?

With mining dying down due to summer and the tax laws announced today, I'd think 750W + 850W should be on order thumb.gif

What would you call it though? 750iT, 850iT? 750Ti , 850Ti? or just plain 750i, 850i?

Yeah, we're aware of that. It takes a long time to develop a platform and the lower wattage variants will be launched eventually.

When launching high-end parts with cutting edge efficiency, features, etc, you basically have to start at the top and then work your way down. You learn on the first platform how to make it amazing, then you can optimize designs and features for the second gen platform. We can launch a 1500W at $450 - but the 750W version would be $300+ with the same layout. So we've been tweaking the new Titanium product lineup to get it more affordable without losing efficiency or design. Basically it means redesigning the platform from scratch for lower or mid-range wattage variants.

Titanium is super high end this year, will remain pretty high end for a couple of years, but in 5 years or so it'll be just standard mainstream efficiency across the board. Even CX-level parts will be Platinum level by 2020 or so.
