EVGA Announces SuperNOVA 1300 G2 Power Supply

By - Source: EVGA | B 8 comments

EVGA has introduced its new SuperNOVA 1300 G2 PSU -- which is capable of (you guessed it) sustaining an output of 1300 Watts.

EVGA has announced the arrival of a new power supply: the SuperNOVA 1300 G2. As the name indicates, it is a power supply capable of delivering up to 1300 W.

The unit is built on a single (deadly) 12 V rail -- one capable of providing up to 108.3 A. The unit also has a fully modular design, uses high quality Japanese solid state capacitors, and is pending certification for Nvidia SLI.

The SuperNOVA 1300 G2 is also 80 Plus Gold certified, meaning that under typical load conditions, it is up to 90 percent efficient. With such a level of efficiency, the unit can get away with cooling by a silent 140 mm fan.

EVGA gave no word on when the device would be in shops, nor did it release any pricing information. Sources do indicate a retail price of $229.99, though. Perhaps it's a bit expensive, but the good news is that the device will come with a respectable 10-year manufacturer warranty.

    Holy hell, 108 amps on one rail? Do they also sell a MIG welding attachment with it? That's some serious power. Serious note; I find it weird that Corsair is the only one offering digital power monitoring on their high-end PSUs (AX1200i), i would of thought it be something more manufacturers would offer on their top-end PSU's when you consider how much they cost and the fact that they end up powering PCs worth some decent $$$.

    10 year warranty sounds nice, wonder what kind of turn around time they have. A PSU is pretty important in running a PC now a days

    So when GPUs are supposed to be getting more energy efficient, why are companies still releasing ultra high wattage PSUs? You'd think the trend would be going in reverse.

    In before more "kid kills himself trying to take apart power supply" stories show up. 108A...I can see a few deaths coming from someone trying to touch the capacitors in this thing.

    I'm so glad they aren't including that goofy switch on the NEX 1500 that switches between single and multiple rail usage. That''s utterly pointless in a modern-design PSU. In fact it's the thing that made me buy an Enermax instead.

    The 10-year warranty is very attractive though. The price is great, too, for that level of PSU, Mr. Broekhuijsen was a bit off with his "bit expensive" comment. Hopefully it's made by a top OEM, like Seasonic.

    I would think if the power supply was plugged in would that happen. :lol:
