Introduction

Kingwin is back with some more Platinum efficiency love but with much more power and a little extra something.

 

The new Kingwin Lazer Platinum 1000W unit offers excellent efficiency, modular connectivity, quiet cooling and lots of power.

 

Kingwin has yet to do anything but impress us in the past and we expect no less from their latest unit, the LZP-1000. Let's take a close look at it right now.

 

 

Specifications, Availability and Pricing

Just as we saw with the Enermax Platimax 1000W unit, the Kingwin LZP-1000 unit is only rated for 20A on both the 5V and 3.3V rails. It also has a single 83A 12V rail capable of 996W of power. A little bump up on the minor rails would be nice.

Kingwin makes sure you're taken care of with plenty of features in the LZP-1000. All your protections are present. The LZP-1000 has both native and modular cabling, all of which is fully sleeved. The LZP-1000 is also capable of delivering 100% continuous output at 50C.

 

Kingwin has an MSRP of $229 on the LZP-1000 1000W unit. We were able to find it cheapest at Newegg for $193.98 at the time of writing this article after shipping and a $20 MIR. That makes it at least $50 cheaper than any other 1000W Platinum unit on the market today. Kingwin backs the LZP-1000 with their customary five year warranty.
