I say they should sell those. It would save all people money, and are good quality if they hold up their servers.

I think one would see a major increase in efficiency if we didn't have so many different voltage rails.
For the CPU wouldn't it be down to the motherboard to translate that 12V down to whatever it needs. So you would only need 12V for the motherboard which can then do the work for the CPU.

This would also drive down the cost of PSUs which would be good as they are fairly expensive...but so are all the parts..

In say, a few hundred years.
