    Default EVGA Supernova G2 650W

    We're not quite done exploring the products of EVGA this week. Today, I bring to you the much anticipated Supernova G2 650 watt model. That's right, folks, this line of awesome units no longer stops at 750 watts. At least, it should be awesome if the past is any indication. How about we find out for sure?

    Page 2, "complimenting" - should be "complementing", unless OW is making one of his infamously terrible puns.

    Great review! I wonder how does the 550w G2 stacks up against the 550w GS from Seasonic?

    Was that a complement?

    They've been outsourcing a lot.

    With low profit margins, maybe it takes a long time to build up enough savings to build a new factory or expand an old one.

    And there's perfectly fine contract manufacturers out there as well, like Flextronics, Delta and Foxconn for example, so you can take your time to build up the savings for your own factories.

    But they're not using Flextronics, Delta and Foxconn. They're using companies Fung Chop Suey Dung and Shenzhen Xing Bao Cha Cha as sub-contractors.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that as long as QC is up to snuff. Plenty of subcontractors have great assembly/QC facilities, but next to zero engineering.
