EVGA Launches the SuperNova 1000 G2 PSU

By - Source: EVGA | B 9 comments

The EVGA SuperNova 1000 G2 was designed with "enthusiast needs in mind" and offers 1000 W of continuous power and up to 90 percent efficiency.

EVGA has launched the SuperNova 1000 G2, an enthusiast-grade power supply unit that offers a fully modular design, 1000 W of continuous power, and an 80+ Gold certification with up to 90 percent efficiency "under typical loads." The PSU also features a high amperage multi-rail design for "maximum power and efficiency" that includes a maximum output of 83.3 A on the +12 V rail. 

To ensure reliable and "near-silent operation," the SuperNova 1000 G2 features Nippon Chemi-Con solid state capacities, a vertical double-layer main transformer, an "intelligent" 140 mm double ball bearing cooling fan and an array of current, temperature and voltage protections. 

The EVGA SuperNova 1000 G2 will come backed with a 10 year manufacturer warranty. Though no official MSRP has been provided, it has been listed by a number of online retailers for between $180 and $210.

    "Nippon Chemi-Con solid state capacities"
    *capacitors.
    In any case, not a bad deal for 10-year warranty, gold efficiency, solid Japanese caps and 1000w.

    10 Year warranty? Damn. Thats the only good thing they really have going for them though. Nothing else looks special, and neither does the price. I'd still rather a 7 year warranty AX1000 or whatnot.

    You mean ax1200? That's 320+ $.
    And the OEM of this EVGA is Super Flower which has an excellent reputation.
    Silverstones in this 1000w range offer only 3 years of warranty and Rosewills 5 years, but they use electrolytic Teapo caps with few Japanese ones- also electrolytic.
    If they manage to keep the price in 180ish $ range, it will be a fine deal.

    Of course, it will all depend on the reviews.

    The OEM for the SuperNova 1500 was Etasis, and while they have a good rep in server PSUs, they have a mixed rep in consumer versions. And, the 1500 was loud, performed acceptably but not great, and had that gimmicky switch where you could make it act like it had multiple rails or a single rail. That is just silly in a modern PSU design, and one more thing to go wrong.
    If this is actually made by Super Flower, and w/o the gimmick switch, I'd say it is could be a very nice PSU to consider - assuming it gets good reviews by people who test these things right. I never buy a PSU by brand or OEM alone. If it's another Etasis unit - meh. Those reviews would have to be seriously glowing for me to consider one.

    10 year warranty on gold rating 1000W PSU?
    it's pretty damm awesome and it's even has modular cabling!
    this will probably stand up for at least 3 rebuilds...

    Any word on Haswell compatibility? Everything looks good but I don't see it specified like a few of the other recent PSU's announcements.

    It looks like it's based on a modified version of Super Flower's Leadex Series SF-1000F14MP.

    Hopefully its much better than all of EVGA's previous PSU offerings.

    I see that the posted price of the EVGA SuperNOVA 1000G2 120-G2-1000-XR is $199.99 at newegg.com.

    It should be compatible. According to EVGA's website this PSU features Full DC to DC- which, as far as I know, means that there will always be some load on +12V, as DC-DC converts 12v to +5V and +3.3V, thus ensuring that +12V power usage will never fall too low.
