Wonder if this idea spawned from Corsair 1000D case that literally houses two systems.
Or perhaps its from the popularity of desk builds with 2 systems now..

Either way, I like this idea. Just wonder if 1000W is enough for those hungry users.

1000 watt would be enough for most systems I'd say, but of course it really depends what you put in there. If you're going Threadripper and i9 CPU, plus triple graphics card, yeah then 1200 watt would probably even be pushing it.

The new evolv X is also a dual system case, so it's probably for that case

well imagine your example on that PSU, and then have it try to run the second system at the same time with an itx board with i7 and a 1080 card.

I think we would have problems.

that would be calling it backwards. if anything, Corsair borrowed the dual system idea from Phanteks. their first case in 2013 (Enthoo Primo) held 2 psus and they put out their first of 3 dual system capable cases (4 including a cancelled revision to the Primo) over 3 years ago.

I don't think this PSU was designed for that, and in normal cases would never be used for that.
You would have 1 high powered PC sitting along side a very low power PC.

Exactly my thoughts. There will always be some who push the limits though. The 1200W PSU makes sense. I just think the 1000W doesn't have a place here.

I have a 1000W just to deal with my single pc setup and allow headroom for heavy use. I can't imagine running an additional one without giving it more "juice"
