Since their Classified overclocker-oriented power supply was first introduced, EVGA has been pretty quiet on the PSU front but that’s about to change with the upcoming NEX series.
EVGA’s power supply stable currently consists of a single -albeit impressive- power supply, the Classified SR-2 1200W which has been on sale for the better part of of a two years now. It was obviously time to bring things up to the expectations of enthusiasts and they’ve done that by introducing a whole new line of power supplies dubbed the NEX series (word is still out on whether Sony will take issue with this nomenclature). Since EVGA is using CES 2012 as a preview for some early engineering designs of these power supplies, we’ll surely hear more about them as the release date approaches.
Appearing at this top of this product stack is the NEX 1500W which holds a long list of features, many of which we don’t have all that many details about. With that being said, some tantalizing information has emerged. The headline items of this power supply include a customizable number of +12V rails (presumably from a single combined rail to multiple rails), an ability engage a “Dummy Mode” for multi PSU operation, an “OC Mode” which allows for up to 133A on the +12V rail, 80+ Gold certification and a software bundle that controls some of the NEX’s various features. EVGA also talked about some additional bullet points like a new type of cable design and a copper infused PCBs for both the modular interface and main PCB.
Unfortunately, we have less information about the the other PSUs in the NEX lineup but what we do know is that they are composed of 650W, 750W and 1000W units that are all 80+ Gold certified and have modular connectors. Their feature sets will likely be substantially less than the flagship 1500W product but expect their prices to be substantially less as well. As the release date gets closer, EVGA has promised to send out some more information.
