EVGA Adds 650 W, 750 W, And 850 W SuperNOVA P2 Models

EVGA enriched the SuperNOVA P2 Platinum line with three more members in 850 W, 750 W and 650 W capacities. Like the existing P2 units, the new ones are also made by Super Flower, and EVGA backs them up with a ten-year warranty.

In addition, they utilize a fully modular cabling design and are equipped with only Japanese capacitors (which is something that increases their reliability over time), and their fans have double ball bearings to increase longevity. Finally, there is a single +12V rail, which tends to be the favorite choice for most manufacturers (and users) nowadays.

In order to offer a quieter operation, especially at light and medium loads, all P2 units come with an ECO Control Fan system, which operates the PSU in passive mode (during which the fan doesn't spin) until the internal temperatures reach a specific threshold. On top of that, the SuperNOVA P2 PSUs include the following protections: OVP (Over Voltage Protection), UVP (Under Voltage Protection), OCP (Over Current Protection), OPP (Over Power Protection), and SCP (Short Circuit Protection).

Unfortunately, Over Temperature Protection (OTP) isn't supported. This protection, in our opinion, is crucial, especially for a semi-passive PSU. The SuperNova P2 850 W, 750 W and 650 W PSUs cost $180, $150 and $120, respectively.

    10 year warranty does nothing for me, if you look around how old is your old power supply or even oldest working pc, the OTP is defiantly a miss here.

    I have a computer that's running an 8 year old PC Power & Cooling 750w PSU. still trucking along. this was back before OCZ bought them and ruined them. the thing even came with a signed test report showing that someone actually put that unit on a test bench and made sure it worked before sending it out!!! the report even showed test reports with the exact efficiency and ripple measurements of the unit.

    those were good times... you will never again see a company put that much care into their products. at ANY price.

    the longevity of a PSU depends on many factors, with one of them being luck (e.g. if you happen to have your system open during a thunderstorm then it is like playing russian roulette with your PSU/system).

    I owned an Etasis PSU which worked flawlessly for more than 4 years in an almost 24/7 base and after all this period it still performed excellent (put it on my load testers and measured ripple and load regulation). Sold it to another guy who managed to destroy it in only a month because of a mains power spike.

    yep. these are based on the Superflower Leadex platinum platform, which is pretty much the best PSU you can get.
