    The problem is that they're all fairly recent. Their best units right now are the G3 units. EVGA basically pumps out a new line every few months to hit every possible market scenario in order to flood the market for customer attention.



    Trying to breakdown everything off the top of my head:



    EVGA N1: Made by HEC, no 80+ / Cybenetics certification. Outdated and poor performing design.



    EVGA W1: Made by HEC, 80+ Standard certification. Outdated design with very weak performance by comparison to the competition and only rated at 25C.



    EVGA B1 400w-700w Made by HEC, 80+ Bronze certification. Old design but with average performance rated at 40C.

    750w is made by FSP and based on their ACRF design but lacks DC-DC making the performance poor. Also rated at 40C.



    EVGA BV: Made by HEC, 80+ Bronze Certification. Old design and rated at 30C instead of 40C like the B1 units. No formal reviews available to judge performance.


    EVGA BT: Made by SuperFlower, 80+ Bronze Certification. Old design rated at 30C with poor performance.


    EVGA B3: Made by SuperFlower, 80+ Bronze Certification. Modern design rated at 40C but with a bugged OTP sensor which can cause the units to overheat and fail without shutting down properly.



    EVGA BQ: 500w/600w Made by Andyson, 80+ Bronze Certification. Rated at 30C with mediocre performance, also an old design.

    650w/750w/850w Made by HEC, 80+ Bronze Certification. Rated at 40C with a modern design and decent performance.



    EVGA B2: Made by SuperFlower, 80+ Bronze Certification. Based on a cost down version of Golden Green and rated at 50C. Pretty good performance all around.



    EVGA NEX B: Made by FSP, 80+ Bronze Certification. Rated at 40C but based on an outdated design with poor performance.



    EVGA G1: Made by FSP, 80+ Gold Certification. Rated at 50C but based on an old design with poor performance.



    EVGA G2: Made by SuperFlower, 80+ Gold Certification. Rated at 50C based on a modern design with very good performance. Similar to the G3s but the units are a bit larger.



    EVGA G2L: Same as the G2 units but with SuperFlower's CrystalCube modular connectors that have white LEDs now.



    EVGA G3: Made by SuperFlower, 80+ Gold Certification. Rated at 50C this is a scaled down design of what was inside the G2 with slightly better performance.



    EVGA GS: Made by Seasonic, 80+ Gold Certification. Rated at 50C, based on a budget Seasonic platform also used by Cyonic with pretty good performance.



    EVGA GQ: Made by FSP, 80+ Gold Certification. Rated at 50C, modern design with pretty solid performance.



    EVGA NEX G: Made by FSP, 80+ Gold Certification. Rated at 50C, based on an old design with mediocre performance.



    EVGA P2: Made by SuperFlower, 80+ Platinum certification. Rated at 50C they are basically the same as the G2 units but more efficient.



    EVGA PQ: Made by FSP, 80+ Platinum certification. Rated at 50C and basically the same as GQ units but more efficient.



    EVGA T2: Made by SuperFlower, 80+ Titanium Certification. Rated at 50C and much like the G2 and P2 units it's the same design but more efficient with similar performance.



    EVGA NEX Classified: Made by Etasis, 80+ Gold Certification. Rated at 50C it was a well built unit by a high profile OEM but had performance that was only on par with the competition while being much louder than others and much more expensive.

    EVGA GS isn't Seasonic G-series, Seasonic didn't ever used it them self but instead created another brand, Cyonic for it. Seasonic G-series was better IMO.

    Also calling the GQ design modern is a stretch, it's not *old*, but it's not new either, it's certainly been round the block under 3 different brands (FSP, BeQuiet, EVGA), and it's certainly not great for a "premium" PSU.

    You are also missing G1+ and GD, both based on the same design as the GQ
    Just some nerd from 'Straya

    GQ may not be newest and greatest but it's still perfectly modern DC-DC based platform, not lagging behind competition significantly (only maybe in some % vreg numbers or mVs of ripple which are very unlikely to have any practical implications). If you get a good deal on it, why not?

    Same for Seasonic G, not first priority pick but viable choice at some discount.

    My mistake. I edited above to fix that.

    Goes to show you that EVGA just has too many damn lines. That's way too much to keep track of.

    Yeah, modern doesn't mean cutting edge or best performance.

    Agreed...


    you can kill them when overloading DC-DC modules, so poor protection...
    And IIRC its also rather loud.

    Connectors are OKish.

    Here Review:
    https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews...ly,4146-3.html

    G-Series is better as it has something the EVGA GS550/650 doesn't have: Heatsinks.

    Seasonic really needs to stop using the HY-510N Supervisior and use something better - like the WT7527V they use on Prime and Focus...

    As far as I can tell; G1+ is full modular (GQ is partially) and G1+ is Single Rail vs the GQ's Multi-rail (which is a downgrade.) The G1+ units also double the amount of Molex connectors which isn't really good or bad.
