We're looking at a brand new name in the world of power supplies today: Cyonic. This is a company looking to make a big splash in the market, and to help pull that off they've enlisted the help of Seasonic. And we know about Seasonic, don't we? Come on in and take a look... this should be a good little unit.
A while ago, we put some cash together and purchased a whole box full of retail EVGA units, just to find out how the entire EVGA product range looked as a whole. Today, I've got the last of those units on the load tester, and am looking forward to finding out how this newer revision of the NEX650G, which is now also called the Supernova G1, performs.
Let's take a look at Corsair's new RM850i today. We've already seen how the 750 watt model does, and now it's time to run some tests on the rest of this new line of units to see how consistent the platform is. Certainly, it's very promising with its full modularity and Corsair Link functionality. But will Corsair be able to keep up with some increasingly strong competition from the likes of Seasonic and EVGA?
We're back in the saddle with EVGA again today, this time looking at the G2 550W unit. This has been an amazing series of units thus far at the higher power levels, and I'm looking forward to finding out how consistent the performance is down at the lower powered end of the scale. Let's check it out now, shall we?
Super Flower's Leadex platform has been dominating the market lately thanks to a lucrative partnership with EVGA. But Super Flower also has a retail presence themselves outside of North America. Let's take a look at the Leadex Titanium 1600 watt unit and see if it's as awesome as EVGA's version, shall we?
Back in May, we had our first look at EVGA's new lower powered additions to the GS line in the 650 GS. Though a decent performer that used a brand new platform to the market, I felt at the time there was room for some improvement. Today, I'm looking at the 550 watt version of the same platform. It came in the same big box as big brother did, and has been patiently awaiting its turn to shine. Let's find out how it does.
We've only seen one unit from SilentiumPC thus far, and it was a pretty decent performing 550W unit. Now, we're looking at another one, the Vero M1 600 watt model. This one is 230V only, intended for the budget single GPU crowd in the European market. Let's see if it's worthy of its place alongside the Supremo M1 we tested earlier.
Not too long ago, a whole box of brand new retail EVGA units landed on my doorstep. The idea was that we would take a look at some of the models that don't commonly show up in reviews. Today, I'm looking at the very bottom of the line for EVGA, the 400W. This is a unit so cheap that it doesn't even have 80 Plus certification. What happens when we load test the absolute cheapest unit you can buy with the EVGA name on it? There's only one way to find out.
Rosewill comes to us today bearing a new unit known as the Quark 1000W. It's an 80 Plus Platinum fully modular unit that boasts fantastic performance at a very reasonable price. Let's see if it has what it takes to compete with the current leaders in the marketplace.
A few weeks ago, we had a look at the XFX TS 650 650W PSU which was the first of three units XFX had sent over. As was mentioned in that review, the TS series is based off the Seasonic G series. We are going to be looking at the XFX - XTR 650, is also based off the G series but with a few more modifications. Will the XTR give us the same performance we seen in the TS? With the main differences being a larger fan, modular cables, and a Hybrid fan mode, I am curious to see just how close these do compare. Let's get on with the show shall we?
