The VRM is made up of server versions of normal consumer components, and should be able to handle more than the consumer part. The PWM controller is a digital Primarion PXE1520, which is from Infineon, and it's a 5+2 controller. The power stages are Infineon's 70A TDA21470, which are the best you can currently get. There are also high current inductors on board.

The VCCSA and VCCIO and memory utilize monolithic power systems MPQ8633, which are 12A POL chips. There is also a Texas Instruments TPD56C215, which also provides up to 12A.
