EVGA has launched the SuperNOVA 1000W/850W Gold FTW, a new series of ATX 3.0-ready power supplies that features a native 12VHPWR PCIe connector for delivering up to 600 watts of power output for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards. The 850-watt model doesn’t appear to be available yet, but the 1000-watt model has been listed at retailers that include Newegg (check price below), with initial shipments going out later this week. Both PSUs come with a three-year warranty and feature a 12VHPWR Thermal Protection Design.

EVGA SuperNOVA 1000W/850W Gold FTW Series Features

  • ATX 3.0 Compliant & PCIe 5.0 Ready
  • Supports up to 235% Total Power Excursion
  • Supports up to 300% GPU Power Excursion
  • Smart Thermal Protection will shut down PC if the 12VHPWR connector gets too hot
  • 100% Japanese Capacitors ensure long-term reliability
  • 80 PLUS Gold certified, with 90% (115VAC) / 92% (220VAC~240VAC) efficiency or higher under typical loads
  • Half-bridge LLC Resonant Controller and DC-DC design leads to extremely tight voltage regulation and very low ripple & noise
  • Fully Modular to reduce clutter and improve airflow
  • Fluid Dynamic Bearing Fan for ultra-quiet operation and increased lifespan.
  • EVGA ECO Intelligent Thermal Control System eliminates fan noise at low to medium loads
  • Heavy-duty protections, including OVP (Over Voltage Protection), UVP (Under Voltage Protection), OCP (Over Current Protection), OPP (Over Power Protection), SCP (Short Circuit Protection), and OTP (Over Temperature Protection)
  • Peace of Mind EVGA warranty and support for 3 Years

Designed to support current and future standards, the EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 W/850 W Gold FTW Series is fully-compliant with ATX12V V3.0 and PCIe Gen 5.0 standards. This means you can use these power supplies with your current system or the system you want to build. More to the point, these power supplies are built to support up to 235% total power excursion and respond significantly faster to transient spikes, ensuring your card and system stay safe and fully powered at all times.

235% Total Power Excursion

The EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 W/850 W Gold FTW Series power supplies support up to 235% total power excursion and up to 300% GPU Power Excursion. This means that these power supplies can handle over 2x its rated wattage and up to 3x GPU sustained power for short periods of time. Rest assured that your current or future system will be able to handle a momentary spike in power usage.

Native 12VHPWR Thermal Protection Design

The EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 W/850 W Gold FTW Series features a native 12VHPWR PCIe connector delivering up to 600 W power output that also eliminates cable clutter. Prioritizing safety and protection, an advanced thermal protection circuit has been added to the 12VHPWR PCIe connector on the PSU side. This circuit serves to safeguard both your power supply and graphics card. If the connector is not correctly connected or if temperature anomalies are detected in the 12VHPWR PCIe connector, the circuit will activate an automatic shutdown. This added protection is particularly important to prevent potential overcurrent risks that may arise during heavy loads from your graphics card. This combination of efficient power delivery and proactive thermal protection ensures optimal performance and reliability in your system.

LLC & PFC MOSFET with Optimized Transistor Package

The LLC & PFC MOSFET incorporates an optimized transistor package that brings significant improvements to its functionality. This package design offers double the heat transfer areas and four times the power dissipation capability, resulting in superior temperature ratings. By managing the heat generation, the optimized transistor package enhances thermal efficiency, ensuring a highly reliable and durable performance for your power supply system.

Near-Platinum Efficiency Performance

The EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 W/850 W Gold FTW Series incorporates an optimized transformer that delivers exceptional performance. Through upgrades, this power supply unit has achieved an efficiency level approaching Platinum standards.
