EVGA has launched its enthusiast orientated SuperNova 1000 P2 PSU which features a vertical double layer main transformer that offers 1000 W of continuous power, an 80 Plus Platinum certification, and a "high amperage multi rail design" that provides a maximum of 83.3 A on the +12 V rail.
The power supply unit also features a fully modular construction, Japanese Nippon Chemi-Con solid state capacitors for improved long-term reliability, and a full suite of built-in Over Power / Under Power / Over Voltage / Short Circuit protections. Additionally, the SuperNova 1000 P2 includes EVGA's new "ECO Thermal Control" fan system and "Dual Thermal Control" system which aim to increase efficiency for "longer operation and reduced energy costs" and are rated to produce zero fan noise at temperatures below 45° C.
The EVGA SuperNova 1000 P2 currently retails for $219.99 and will be backed by a 10 year manufacturer warranty. Interestingly, EVGA has announced that the PSU will also be offered in an 80 Plus Gold variant which will be released in the near future for $199.99 (after a $10 MIR).
From what I read, the SuperNova is based on a Superflower's Platinum-rated design. I'm guessing Redundant incorrectly presumed EVGA launched the Platinum-rated model first by simply re-branding Superflower's design instead of the cost-reduced Gold version that is already out there and ended up switching them around in release order.
Only the SuperNOVA 1000 G2(120-G2-1000-XR), 1000 P2(220-P2-1000-XR) and 1300 G2((120-G2-1300-XR) models, so far, are made by Super Flower. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending these models to anyone.
The 500W model is made by HEC/COMPUCASE. The 650W and 750W models are made by FSP Group. The 1500W model is made by Etasis. I wouldn't recommend any of these models since there are competitors that offer better performing products.
The professional reviews of the two G2 models have been quite favorable (i.e. excellent).
My only regret here is that I already have great power supplies, and have no need to buy a new one :) .
