Final Thoughts and Conclusions

The new SuperNOVA 1000 P2 and 1200 P2 power supplies from EVGA continue to offer a rare combination of performance and value. Once again, EVGA has partnered with Super Flower, which is one of the top OEMs, to produce the two new P2 models. This combination is proving hard to beat with outstanding performance across the board along with very aggressive pricing.

The SuperNOVA 1200 P2 power supply exhibited outstanding voltage regulation with very low AC ripple, even at full load. The power supply features all modular cables and delivers very good efficiency, meeting the 80Plus Platinum criteria. The 1200 P2 PSU incorporates EVGA’s ECO Intelligent Thermal Control System, which allows the power supply to operate in silent, fan-less mode at low to mid power levels. And last but not least, the two new P2 power supplies are backed by a 10-year warranty (with registration). Our only minor disappointment was the new power supplies do not support EVGA’s SuperNOVA hardware monitoring and control software.

The new EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 P2 and 1200 P2 power supplies are currently available and shipping.
