EVGA and Seasonic new entry-level PSUs

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

There's a post in Cases and Power Supplies but I figured I'd do one with TNR formatting.

 

Sources:

EVGA and Seasonic have announced new PSUs that are targeted at the budget to mid-range market, finally after years upon years of reign of the now venerable S12II and M12II old Seasonic models.

 

Quote

EVGA's new B3 line will be the successor of the B2, and currently it's positioned between the GQ (FSP OEM) and BQ (HEC and Andyson OEMs) lines. The platform, which all B3 units use, was designed by Super Flower, although we can't know for sure in which factory those PSUs will be actually made--it could be SF's own factory, or somewhere else (eg, RSY). The efficiency is 80 PLUS Bronze for all B3 models.

This is all sorts of great, Super Flower is one of the best OEMs out there for PSUs. Of course I won't start giving them to people until reviews pop up.

Besides them being fully modular, one amazing thing is their expected price:

Quote

The lowest member of the B3 line has 450W capacity, addressing mainstream systems, whereas the strongest one has 850W max power. The expected street prices will start from $40 for the 450 B3, with a $10 increase for every additional 100W of power until you get to the 750 B3, which will be around $75. The 850 B3 will start at $85. Those prices put the B3 line against Corsair's CX units, and the fight is expected to be tough.

As for Seasonic, no photos, but a statement from their Press Releases.

Quote

The Focus Series will be launched late-2016 to gradually replace the most popular mid-range product lines of Seasonic. This series will include specialty and limited edition products as well as a wide wattage range selection of essential power supplies for quality-conscious customers, gamers and enthusiast alike.
In 2017 Seasonic is planning to launch its Core series of products that correspond with the currently very popular Seasonic units all over the globe. The introduction of the Core series will be welcomed by a wide range of cost conscious end-users who require reliability.

They don't speak of much details, but the press release suggests that they are trying to enter the market in force as their own brand, with Mainstream models in the Focus series and Entry-level ones in the Core series. Seasonic has yet to disappoint even in the entry-level market if you don't count the XT series from XFX, so I'm confident that these will be competitive.

 

As a LTT user who has spent thousands of words convincing people to dish out the $15 more to get the good entry level PSU instead of the unreliable cost-down unit, I have a dream that one day we'll be able to give people reliable and good PSUs for very little money, so this announcement made me very happy. We hear a lot of talk of $200 units with 0% change in voltage and Unobtanium efficiency, but the people who've $200 aren't the people who need the better PSUs, it's the people who have $350 for their whole computer.

It depends on the price difference, but I wouldn't pay much more for the g3.

But it's already dead, that's why we have CXM series.

CX is still a fine line, better than most $35 shit. But the CXM is much better

We'll have to wait for reviews to see if these will actually dethrone the CXM, but I've a feeling they're gonna be good
