They don't use the "lower-cost" flavor of Raider II platform, but the more expensive ACRF one (from Raider II 750W and certain Be Quiets Straight Power 10 and Pure Power 10, as well as EVGA GQ 550/650) (also pictured in The_Mask's post).

They don't have any idea what they're doing. Every month a new serie.

I think it may be nice for a cheap 450W 80+ Gold unit with DC-DC and 2x PCIe. The 550GD is over 2x cheaper than 550 G2, too (on EVGA store at least).

Though maybe even with that the Asians in that area have some better options (perhaps some nice SAMAs or Segoteps), I don't know the market or the prices.

I think the fan grille is quite pretty!

There is nothing wrong with using this design for a 450 or 550W PSU, even 650W isn't a bad choice. But it doesn't make sense to make it only available for the Chinese market and launch every month a new serie.

They will use all the possible names so they will start "GGQ, GGD, GGS, GG2,etc", and again "GGGQ, GGGD..." until reaching infinity and converting themselves into a black hole (space meaning)

Chinese market is pretty unique. They probably had one customer that told them that they didn't need modular cables, which can save $5 or more, so they came out with this series.

Personally I'm waiting for the EVGA GG EZ 550W for CS:GO gamers.
