Fans of the popular PC component manufacturer can breathe a sigh of relief as EVGA launches its first PCIe Gen5 ATX 3.0 PSUs. EVGA has largely been silent, outside of its weekly sales fliers for its products on Newegg and Amazon, following its announcement it would be terminating its partnership with NVIDIA back in September 2022. There have been some signs of life, such as the introduction of its non-modular GE Gold design PSUs in April, and its EVGA Z790 CLASSIFIED EATX motherboard in January, but beyond those and some other announcements for its peripheral line of products, not much else has been announced in 2023.

The EVGA SuperNOVA 1000G/850G XC Series is EVGA’s first line of power supplies to feature a 12VHPWR connector, something currently exclusive to NVIDIA graphics cards, and since team green continues to hold 84% percent of the desktop discreet GPU market space it only makes sense to have a line of products that can be used with them. This XC series is 80 Plus Gold Certified, modular, available in 1000 W or 850 W models, features 100% Japanese capacitors, and supports up to 200% total power excursion and up to 300% GPU power excursion for short periods of time.

Other features include OVP (Over Voltage Protection), UVP (Under Voltage Protection), OCP (Over Current Protection), OPP (Over PowerProtection), SCP (Short Circuit Protection), and OTP (Over Temperature Protection), a 3-year warranty, and PWM-controlled FDB fan that runs completely silent at medium-low loads and temperatures.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
