Power supplies in North America (120V mains) are not limited at 15A in most residential circuits; the safe limit is less than that. While it's true that most residential circuits are rated for 15A, that is when the breaker will trip or the fuse will blow. By the national electrical code the maximum SAFE current is 80% of what the circuit is rated for. So, on a 15A circuit the safe current is 12A; even assuming unity power factor this is less than 1.6kW at 120V. Unless this power supply comes with a NEMA 5-20 connector, which only allows it to connect to a 120V/20A circuit, it will NOT provide 1.6kW in North America.

I've apparently had too much to drink this evening. Please ignore my reference to 1.6kW as I was commenting about the wrong power supply, doh!

Great, not only dirty miners ruin gaming buying out GPUs but now even EVGA plays to the tune and releases multi kW PSUs...

Quit complaining about miners. I get notifications almost daily from EVGA about 1080 Ti's that are in stock and at MSRP. You're not entitled to them any more than they are.
