Next up is the new power supply, the AX1500i. Following the line of AXi series which have proved themselves in the fields of reliability, efficiency and aesthetics, the AX1500i is the most powerful, and most efficient power supply Corsair have ever produced, and also the most efficient power supply consumers can buy at this moment in time. The AX1500i meets specifications for 80 plus Titanium rating, and offers up to 94% efficiency.
As it’s a whopping 1500watts, the AX1500i will easily be enough to power pretty much anything you can throw at it. It comes with 8 PCI-E cables, meaning you can have up to quad-SLI and Quadfire with four graphics cards without even pushing the AX1500i to the limit.
Due to the digital nature of the PSU (as we’ve seen from previous AXi models), the AX1500i allows USB connection in order to monitor and control various aspects of the power supply. Corsair’s bundled software allows for real-time monitoring of temperatures, current draw and efficiency, and also allows the user to adjust the fan speed. Another thing that we’ve grown accustomed to with Corsair power supplies is the unit’s ability to run passively up to a certain percentage of load. Due to the total power of the AX1500i, this means it can run a system up to 450watts whilst staying completely silent.
The AX1500i has an RRP of $449.99 which equates to around £275 in the UK. Considering the AX1200i is around £250, this will hopefully be very well priced considering what the unit offers, and compared to the other competition on the market.
