The Seasonic S12II-520 520W probably kicks the crap out of the XFX P1-550S-XXB9 PRO550W.

Reasoning:
- The better XFX units, ones on par with SeaSonic models, typically start around the 650 watt mark (on the XFX box).
- Seasonic Power Supplies are always over engineered and don't just meet the specifications, they exceed them.
- Seasonic Power Supplies can output more than the rating on the box without breaking down.
- "Internally, we can see that the Core Edition 550W uses the Seasonic S12II platform, very much like the Core Edition 450W. Even the fan is identical" --- Despite this the XFX unit is rated differently!, and the model I am looking at may not match the one you mentioned above!: XFX Core Edition 550W

Specifications on the XFX unit are more subject to changes than the Seasonic units.

All of XFX's PSUs are made by Seasonic and are based on existing Seasonic platform models.

XFX does get to specify what kind of shell/case design is used, fan model/quality, output cable lengths. Internal circuit board components are, in most cases, the same as what Seasonic uses in their own models.

Reputable reviews of the equivalent models show that the electrical performance is the same, as it should expected to be.

When selecting between a genuine Seasonic or a brand using the equivalent OEM model I would make my decision based on price and warranty period.
