EVGA has to be happy with their place in the power supply market right now. They took an awesome platform and ran with it, and now everyone else has to play catch-up. Today, I’m looking at the Supernova P2 1200 watt unit. It seems a foregone conclusion at this point that it will be just as awesome as ever, but why don’t we just check it out anyway to be certain?

EVGA really has been on a tear lately, haven’t they? I remember the first time I saw the Super Flower Leadex platform, wondering who would be the first to bring such an awesome design to the North American market. EVGA must have been reading that review or something because thus far they have been using that platform to literally clean the clocks of all their competition. Back when the cryptocurrency mining craze was at its peak, you could not find an EVGA G2 unit in stock, that’s how popular they were. And even today, there has still not been any other company to offer this platform in North America.
Today, we take the next step in the evolution of EVGA’s lineup by looking at the 1200 watt 80 Plus Platinum P2 unit. I expect it to be awesome.
The box has the usual marketing on it – nothing we haven’t seen before. Once more, the unit is good for full power up to fifty degrees, is fully modular, and comes with that ten-year warranty. Of course, you do have to register for that warranty, but that’s not hard to do. I’m sure. Being a reviewer, I’ve never had to register for the warranty.
EVGA would once again like to remind you that they are #1. I’m guessing they mean in video cards, though at this point they could very well be talking about power supplies, too. Corsair might be feeling some heat from these guys. I mean, they have no competition yet for the AX1500i, but… oh. Folks, I just looked at my shelf full of review units and saw what’s up there. Corsair’s gotta be a bit worried now.
Let’s not waste a bunch of time on the box and unpack it. We’ve got a power supply to test!
Inside the box, we have a power supply in a cloth bag, some velcro cable ties, a 14 gauge power cord, a modular cable bag, some screws, an ATX adapter to fire up the unit without a load, some modular cables, and a user guide.
Here’s the user guide. As Silverstone has shown us numerous times, there can always be a bit more information on these. Unless, of course, you’re Silverstone. But this one isn’t bad at all.
Oh, hello, sir. Nice mustache.
