EVGA SuperNOVA P2 1600 PSU Review

Rating: 9.5.

We aren’t messing around today. Up for analysis is the latest flagship power supply from enthusiast favourite EVGA. Their new SuperNova 1600 P2 Power supply is a monster product designed for power crazy SLI and Crossfire systems. It is 80 Plus Platinum certified, fully modular, and incorporates the highest grade Japanese capacitors inside. The EVGA SuperNOVA 1600 P2 is designed to deliver a staggering 1600 watts – which for 90% of our audience, will be completely overkill. This is not for the faint of heart, as the £275.99 inc vat asking price will testify.

The EVGA SuperNOVA P2 1600 Supply is a high amp single rail design (133A) and it incorporates a vertical, double layer main transformer to increase power output. EVGA claim this beast operates in ‘near silence’ most of the time so we want to put that to the test later in the review.

    Who the fuck needs a 1600 watts PSU nowadays with Intel Haswell mere 88 W TDP and Nvidia GM204 low 165 W TDP???

    Even with a workstation running 2 X Haswell Xeon and 4 X GM204 GPU, that’s still only 836 W! Add on top a “worse case scenario” 100 W for the motherboard, 3 more PCI-e expansion card, 64GB of RAM, 2 X SSD, 4 X hard drives and a dual water cooling loop for CPU/GPU, and you don’t even break the 1000 W barrier!

    For a regular single air cooled i7-4790K, 32GB RAM and 2 X GTX 980, 2 X SSD in RAID0 and 2 X hard drives in RAID1 + a few accessories and motherboard, you are looking at WELL below 600 watts, even overcloked! 800 W PSU are already overkill now, imagine 1600 W…
