Haven't ever built a computer, but I want to in the near future. What would even consume this much power? Just trying to understand it all.

most likely deep learning, workstations builds with dual CPU and quad GPUs or more.

These deals are coming out from ramping parts production for crypto mining rigs and now that the mining is less profitable on consumer hardware they are having hard times selling the power supplies required to run the multi gpu setups.

Enthusiasts may want to build super high end PC. People, who video edit/game/stream simultaneously, may end up with overclocked core i9 (10-18 core CPU) + 2x 1080 Ti.

You will never ever need a 1600 watt power supply. Even if you had 2 x 1080ti and a thread ripper.

Like others have said, it was mainly in use by crypto miners.

If you're worried about power consumption, I've found that PC Part Picker [pcpartpicker.com] has been exceptionally helpful in terms of estimating minimum / maximum wattage for a build.

Secondarily, if you look at the wikipedia page for the 80 Plus certification [wikipedia.org] power supplies can voluntarily get, there are different efficiencies under different loads.

So for example, a 80 Plus Titanium certified PSU is 90% efficient under 10% load in the US (115v). The more efficient a PSU is, the less heat it generates, which means less wear is put on the electrical components.

Hope that helps!

Just for reference, a 1080 Ti can use up to 250 W each. Most processors use around 100 W, but that does go up when overclocking.
