If only hitman Chev Chelios had access to EVGA's latest power supply in the Crank: High Voltage series, he wouldn't need to go looking for sources of electricity to keep himself ticking. EVGA today announced its SuperNOVA 1600 G2 PSU, a monster 1600W unit with a mind boggling 133.3A available over a single all-important +12V rail. If you're looking for a beefy PSU to power a high-end rig with multiple graphics card, this looks like a candidate, at least based on the spec sheet (and EVGA's reputation).
Not only does the SuperNOVA 1600 G2 deliver plenty of electricity to your components, but it's also 80 Plus Gold certified with up to 90 percent efficiency under typical loads. In other words, this thing isn't wasting power or being sloppy with what it's pulling from your wall.
It's a fully modular PSU to help reduce clutter. Other features include 100 percent Japanese Nippon Chemi-Con solid state capacitors (no cheap knockoffs, is what this essentially means), a quiet and intelligent fan that EVGA claims offers near-silent operation, and support for 4th Generation Intel Core processors (C6/C7 Idle Mode).
Would you belive all this comes in at under a C-note? Neither would we -- it's actually $350 MSRP, though it does come backed by a 10-year warranty. The EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 G2 will be available soon.
