When it comes to power supplies, things can get a bit dull at some points, but not at FSP's CES 2019 suite. We saw the huge Cannon 2Kw PSU built primarily for mining, and the 650W and 550W Dagger Pro series PSUs for small form factor builds.

The Cannon features up to 18 PCI-E power connectors (6+2 pins) and could pretty much power nine dual-8pin GPUs for mining, while still offering the ability to run two 8-pin CPU power connectors. The PSU is rated 80PLUS Gold, has a hold up time over 17ms at full load, and is fully modular.

While the old motto "go big or go home" might apply to sports, but when it comes to computers, sometimes going smaller is harder. The Dagger line currently exists with 500W/600W SFX PSUs, but that's not enough for most people. As we saw with the Cannon line, increasing wattage also increases the size of the PSU. FSP went back to the drawing board and came out with 550W and 650W Dagger pro PSUs in the same SFX form factor, capable of driving more powerful, yet smaller, high performance PCs. These two new Dagger Pro PSUs are both 80PLUS Gold rated and are fully modular.
