    Default Seasonic Model numbers

    I've been having a discussion about the seasonic platinum series models and model numbers, but its getting rather confusing.

    To my knowledge there is a SS-860XP(EOL) and a SS-1000XP. Then there are the newer SS-660XP², SS-760XP² and SS-860XP².

    However the Seasonic importer over here claims there allso used to be a SS-660XP and a SS-760XP.
    I've never heard of these, they aren't on the Seasonic site nor can I find them on the Ecova site. So whats the deal with those, are they Asia only products?

    Can anyone clarify this issue for me? Prefably a seasonic rep, but any input is appreciated.

    The "²" is there to signify a revision 2, but formally the platform is still XP. The older revision is to be phased out, hence the lack of it's mention on the official website. There are subtle differences, but they're not so great as to warrant any dissatisfaction if you do get a previous iteration of the platform.

    I wouldn't concern myself too much with this, especially when it concerns such a good product.
    Careful what you wish for... You just might get it.

    The older 860XP is the Plattform the 850W P10 is based on and the same as the 1050 and 1250W XPs. It has 4 Rails.

    The newer XP2 has not. It's either a 'true single rail' or maybe a dual rail design.

    Thank you for your quick reply.

    I might be a bit pigheaded here, but I still think there is only one version of de 660/760W models.
    If the ² solelysignified a revision, why cant I find anything about the first iteration? No acticles, no reviews and Ecova only has a report on the ² (km3) version. If this was a revision, wouldn't they only have a report on the first version?

    To Clarify:
    - I know there is one 1000W version
    - I know there are two 860W version, which are both on the seasonic and Ecova sites.
    - I think there is only one 660/760W seasonic platonim model SS-760XP².
    - Seasonic importer sais there allso is an older seasonic platinum model SS-760XP.

    There is no SS-760XP, just SS-760XP².
    The "XP²" denotes the second generation platinum platform from Seasonic.

    The only XP² unit that would be different is the 860w as there is the SS-860XP & SS-860XP². Which the XP² model has better ripple & noise suppression due to the modified design which is shared by the other XP² units.

    Soon we'll have a 3rd generation of their platinum platform coming out with a 1200w model. So you'll most likely see an XPÂł but that just denotes the new platform and not specifically a 3rd revision of a 1200w platinum unit.

    Thats what I thought.
    The Seasonic importer thinks otherwise though. Gues I'll try to convince him.

    Everyone makes mistakes though, so I figured I'd ask here.
