EVGA has announced they will be updating their SuperNOVA Platinum rated power supplies with the P6 models.
As stated in the press release (via email), these are shorter than previous models; which would allow it to fit inside more cases. This also has a price cut compared to previous models by about $20 USD across the board, to $299.99 USD.
Along with a smaller size for more performance, the P6 boasts firmware that allows it to anticipate harmful load behavior 5% to 10% sooner; shutting down when over-power persists for longer than just 1 ms. In turn, this avoids overload trigger protection going off too soon with only momentary peak wattage usage.
Here is what EVGA has to say about it in their press release.
The EVGA SuperNOVA P6 power supplies feature a new platform design, using new materials and better layout placement to achieve greater performance with extremely low ripple and noise in an even smaller chassis. With a full-bridge, LLC Resonant Rectification, and DC-DC design, the SuperNOVA P6 provides rock-solid stability, uncompromising efficiency, and extremely tight voltage regulation.
Hardware OPP is designed to trip at 135% max wattage as a last resort to protect the system, but the SuperNOVA P6 also features firmware OPP to anticipate harmful load behavior 5-10% sooner by shutting off the power supply when over-power conditions persist longer than 1 ms while avoiding an instantaneous overload trigger protection malfunction during momentary peak wattage.
Smaller Size, Bigger Performance
The improved efficiency and voltage regulation minimizes heat, allowing the SuperNOVA P6 to be EVGA’s shortest ATX Platinum-certified power supply.
Ultra-Quiet 135 mm FDB Fan with EVGA ECO Mode
To reduce noise, the SuperNOVA P6 maximizes the time the power supply stays silent or quiet at low to medium loads when ECO Mode is enabled.
