What is the difference between "continuous" and "peak" ratings?
power supply units are rated for continuous output while others are
rated at peak. "Continuous" means that the power supply is rated to run
at it's maximum capability for no pre-determined period of time, while
"Peak" indicates that the power supply will only run at the specified
wattage for a brief period of time, possibly only a few seconds or up to
a minute. This number is typically about 100W more than the power
supply's actual continuous rating.
