EVGA Unveils the Super G7 1000, The Most Compact 1000W PSU

EVGA showed off a prototype of the Super G7 1000, the most compact 1000-Watt power supply. This unit is just 125 mm in length, or about the length of mainstream 400-600W PSUs, but is fully modular, and packs a 1000W punch. The unit is about 17% smaller than a SuperNova 1000 G3, and is expected to be cheaper than it. This feat is made possible by some parts of the main PCB made to stand as perpendicular daughterboards. The unit still manages to tick all high-end checkboxes, including a single +12V design, DC-to-DC switching, 80 Plus Platinum efficiency, electrical protections, and full modular cabling. It measures 150 mm x 86 mm x 125 mm (WxHxD), and employs a 120 mm fan to keep cool. EVGA plans to launch this some time in September 2018.

EVGA Shows Off SuperNova G+ Series High-Wattage PSUs

EVGA grabbed quite some attention at CES earlier this year, when it unveiled its gargantuan SuperNova 2200W P2 power-supply. The P2 series are 80 Plus Platinum rated. EVGA thinks there's room for a slightly cheaper line of high-Wattage PSUs that are 80 Plus Gold rated, but have the feature-set of more expensive P2 series models. Enter the G+ series. For now, the series has to very dissimilar variants - the SuperNova 850W G+, and the SuperNova 2000W G+. Both models feature single +12V rail designs, DC-to-DC switching, large 135 mm cooling fans, and most common electrical protections. The 2000W model even has an "Eco mode" toggle, which turns off the fan below a thermal/load threshold.

The SuperNova 850W G+ has enough juice and straws for a reasonably high-end build with up to four graphics cards, using eight 6+2 pin PCIe connectors. It also features two 4+4 pin EPS (handy in some of the newer HEDT platforms), twelve SATA power, three Molex, and a Berg. The SuperNova 2000W G+ is a different beast. You can power up to ten graphics cards over twenty 6+2 pin PCIe power connectors, in addition to two 4+4 pin EPS, sixteen SATA power, six Molex, and two Bergs. Both models provide flat, fully-modular cabling. EVGA expects to launch these within Q3-2018.

More custom RGB lighting possibilities are permitted thanks to its light synchronization with ASUS Aura Sync, GIGABYTE RGB Fusion, MSI Mystic Light Sync, ASRock RGB LED and BIOSTAR Vivid LED DJ-enabled motherboards.

Outside of the RGB LEDs, the fully modular lineup features ultra quiet Smart Zero Fan to guarantee near silent operation when the working load goes over 20%, and the 100% high quality Japanese 105°C/221°F capacitors to offer excellent stability and reliability. All ripples are lower than 30mV on +12V, +5V, or +3.3V from 0% to 100% load, and the voltage regulation is set to no more than ±2% for major rails to ensure a high quality performance. With an ample 10 year warranty, the Toughpower Grand RGB Gold (RGB Sync Edition) series is the best choice for those who are seeking a flashy looking Power Supply with superior balance of performance and quality.

EVGA Announces Automatic Extension to New PSU Warranties For a Limited Time

EVGA today announced that they're starting a special, limited-time promotion on most of its PSU line-up. The offer, which lasts from tomorrow, June 5th, until December 31st 2018, will see the warranty period on specific families of EVGA PSUs automatically extended to up to 12 years of Limited Warranty. EVGA says this is a testament on their confidence in their own PSUs and their ability to withstand continuous usage throughout the years.

There are some tiers to this "automatic" warranty extension, however. Namely, different power supply families will see varying increases in their warranty periods - a way of acknowledging different longevity and quality of more expensive, more premium PSUs as well. As it stands, EVGA's -L Suffix graphics cards will see an upgrade to 4 Year Limited Warranty; -K Suffix PSUs to a 5 Year Limited Warranty; -V Suffix will be upgraded to a 7 Year Limited Warranty; -Y Suffix to 9 years; and finally, -X suffix will see the biggest increase to the maximum 12 years Limited Warranty. The increase amounts to 2 additional years of coverage period for each suffix of power supplies, but leaves out some PSUs in EVGA's catalog - namely -BR, -RX, and -RB suffixes. So pay good attention to what PSU you're buying if you're counting on getting an extended warranty for this critical component of your new - or revamped - build.

Cybenetics Announces New ETA-230V and LAMBDA-230V Certifications

Cybenetics was formed with one purpose in mind; to bring revolution to the efficiency and noise certification standards of personal computer power supply units (PSUs) through the ETA (efficiency) and LAMBDA (noise) programs.

Both programs mentioned above use 115 VAC input mainly. Given the increased demand for 230 VAC results, we decided to initiate two new programs, the ETA-230V and LAMBDA-230V. The general methodologies that the new programs follow are identical to the ones used by the 115 V programs, with the main differences being the 230 V input and the different limits/ranges in the ETA-230V.

XFX Intros XTi-1000W 80 Plus Titanium Power Supply

XFX today debuted the XTi line of high-end power-supplies, with a 1000-Watt model, the XTi-1000. These PSUs boast of fully-modular cabling, a low-noise fan profile, and 80 Plus Titanium efficiency. The PSU offers enough juice and straws for a high-end gaming desktop with 3-4 graphics cards. Under the hood, is a single +12V rail design, 100% Japanese capacitors, APFC, and most common electrical protections (against surges, over/under-voltage, overload, overheat, and short-circuit). A 135 mm fluid-dynamic bearing fan is used to keep the unit cool.

Connectors of the XFX XTi-1000 include a 24-pin ATX, two 8-pin EPS (from which one splits to 4+4 pin), eight 8-pin PCIe (each split to 6+2 pin PCIe), ten SATA power connectors, six Molex, and one Berg. The fan is programmed to stay off (0 dBA) when the load is under 25 percent, and stay in "Quiet Mode" (16 dBA) between 25 to 50 percent load, and only then ramp up to max speed somewhat linearly with load. It's been tested to support low-power states of the latest AMD Ryzen and Intel Core processors. The unit is backed by a 5-year warranty.

Be Quiet! Announces Straight Power 11 Modular PSU Series

be quiet!, the market leader in PC power supplies in Germany for eleven consecutive years, announces its latest, most silent power supply, Straight Power 11. With its completely redesigned PCB, wire-free design on the DC side, an expanded power range with models up to 1,000 watts, and a modern topology using high-quality components, Straight Power 11 is a worthy successor to be quiet!'s premium power supply series.

The Straight Power 11 series uses be quiet!'s renowned Silent Wings 3 135 mm fan with a funnel-shaped vent that simultaneously provides excellent airflow and reduces unwanted turbulence. A 6-pole motor and fluid-dynamic bearings create both an extremely low noise level and the lowest startup rotational speed in the market - under 200 revolutions per minute. This fan is extremely silent, making semi-passive solutions unnecessary and ensuring constant cooling at a low noise level. Since fans are not the only source of noise in a power supply, high-quality capacitors are used to prevent high-frequency electronic noise emission and noise induced by extreme load changes (like, for example, from modern graphics cards) is also minimized.
