EVGA, the well-known manufacturer of PC hardware components for enthusiasts, has announced that its SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified Power Supply, which was introduced last earlier, is already on sale.
As many of you already know, the new SuperNOVA NEX1500 PSU by EVGA is packed with a wide variety of different features. One of the most interesting features of this PSU is its advanced system of monitoring and control, which lets the user control the power supply via the SuperNOVA software suite. After connecting the PSU to the system via USB, the user can monitor such parameters as the system’s overall power consumption, both voltage and current on every line, efficiency, temperature, speed of the fan, etc.
All of that data can be presented both as real-time instantaneous values and as timelines. Aside from that, the user can set various thresholds with alarms setting of if the specified value goes over or under it. The bundled software also lets the user control various settings of the EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 power supply, like adjusting the voltage on the +12V line, adjusting speed of the fan (or setting its relation to temperature), merging and disconnecting virtual +12V lines or activating the overclock mode (increasing the power from 1500 to 1650W). If’s worth noting that using the overclock mode in this PSU requires plugging it in a 230V outlet, which are standard for Europe, but not common in the U.S. Another interesting feature of the EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 power supply is the ability to connect a number of these PSUs, essentially combining them into one and getting even more power and reliability.
EVGA also notes that the advertised value of power in their new PSUs means continuous load and not brief load as is sometimes the case with some other PSUs. Furthermore, the SuperNOVA NEX1500 PSU utilizes high-quality japanese capacitors and a ball-bearing fan by Sanyo Denki, so EVGA is confident in quality and gives ten years of warranty. Since the EVGA SuperNOVA NEX1500 Classified Power Supply is marketed as a high-end product for enthusiasts, the presence of modular connectors is a given with the individual sleeving of cables being the icing on the cake. Manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the SuperNOVA NEX1500 power supply is set at $449.99, which also shouldn’t surprise anyone, given the fact that this is a high-end product for enthusiasts.
