EVGA has just updated its SuperNOVA PSU lineup, promising high wattage units that are smaller in size, quieter, and deliver users tighter voltage tolerances than their predecessors. In short, EVGA's new SuperNOVA 1600W and 1300W P+ units appear to be major improvements over their last-generation counterparts, despite offering the same 80+ efficiency rating. 

While they may offer PC builders the same 80+ Platinum Efficiency rating, EVGA's new 1600 P+ and 1300 P+ offer a lot of upgrades over the 1600 P2 and 1200 P2 models that they replace. For starters, the 1300W P+ model has a higher wattage capacity, and that is just the start of EVGA's long list of upgrades. 

Noise-wise, EVGA has stated that their new 1300W P+ model is up to 45% quieter than its 1200W P2 predecessor, lowering noise levels from 35.8 dB to 19.6dB. Combine that with EVGA's promise of "longer-lasting fans", it is clear that EVGA has upped their game with regards to cooling. Beyond that, both their 1600W and 1300W P+ units ship with 10-year warranties. 

With the SuperNOVA P+ series, EVGA has also promised tighter 12V load regulation and efficiency levels of 92% or higher under typical levels of system load. Size-wise, EVGA's latest SuperNOVA 1600 P+ is also 20mm shorter than EVGA's SuperNOVA 1600 P2, making the PSU a lot easier to fit inside most PC enclosures. 

Below is EVGA's full press release for their new SuperNOVA 1600 P+ and 1300 P+ power supplies.

Press Release - EVGA Unveils SuperNOVA 1600 and 1300 P+ Power Supplies

Enter the SuperNOVA P+, the new and improved fully-modular power supply line-up from EVGA with an 80+ Platinum Efficiency rating. These power supplies pick up where the award-winning EVGA 1600 P2 and 1200 P2 power supplies left off and continue the tradition of EVGA quality and performance.

Additionally, the SuperNOVA P+ power supplies feature a cleaner internal layout to increase airflow, a Variable Resistor module (to increase voltage stability), two DC to DC modules for more efficient power switching on all models, EVGA ECO Mode, a full suite of power supply protections, and EVGA's World-Leading Global 10-Year Warranty on all P+ power supplies.

Shorter Length

When it comes to building a system, even the smallest differences can make or break your build. The 1600 P+ is 20 mm shorter than its P2 counterpart, giving you more space without sacrificing quality.

Quiet and Long-Lasting Fans

1600 P+ -
135 mm Double Ball Bearing Fan

1300 P+ -
135 mm Fluid Dynamic Bearing Fan

Double Ball Bearings are the industry standard for any power supply expected to carry heavy loads on a regular basis due to their durability and low noise level. Fluid Dynamic Bearings reduce the wear and tear on a fan's bearing, which reduces noise and increases its lifespan.

Tight 12 V Load Regulation

1300 P+ - 0.50% vs. 1200 P2 - 0.75%

The SuperNOVA P+ is loaded in many areas, including a single 12 V. rail, 100% Japanese capacitors, VR module, and DC to DC converter on all SuperNOVA P+ power supplies. Compliant with IEC 62368, this results in over 92% efficiency, tight 12 V. load regulation, and stable power to all connected devices.

Up to 45% Quieter Under Load

1300 P+ - 19.6 dB vs. 1200 P2 - 35.8 dB

By combining quiet and long-lasting fan bearings with an optimized fan curve and a cleaner internal layout, the P+ power supply line-up reduces noise by up to 45%, compared to the P2 power supplies.

Specs At A Glance
