Evga have announced the release of a new power supply, the Classified SR-2. Intended to be paired with (though certainly not restricted to) their workstation-class motherboard of the same name, the SR-2 power supply is capable of putting out a top-notch 1200 watts of continuous power.
Though Evga touts the unit as being specifically designed around SR-2 motherboard, you can quite clearly see the name "Truepower Quattro" on the packaging. Thus we can tell it is simply a rebranded Antec Truepower Quattro OC edition with a few tweaks. The most obvious tweak is in the connectors, with a whopping 15 PCI-E connectors (12x 6+2-pin and 3x 6-pin). These additions were required the sacrifice of two SATA, three molex, and one floppy connector though.
Key features include an adjustable 12v rail voltage pot and fan controller, as well as Antec's PowerCache technology. PowerCache involves the use of a 2200µf capacitor wired inline with the CPU and video card connectors to ensure sufficient power is available when needed. The unit provides six 12v rails capable of putting out 38A each and pretty much all of the connectors you could ever need.
The Evga Classified SR-2 Power Supply is priced at $359.99 from their online store, though one would imagine we'll see a lower price at actual retailers. The unit comes with a standard 5-year warranty.
