Those are the different model names. GQ is decent.

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

Meaning they are different product lines, in this instance the manufacturer or underlying components / design will be different.

 

All GQ units are made by FSP.

Different manufacturer and base design. Most of the brands you see out there just rebrand and rename lesser known brands' design and sometimes with a few tweaks like EVGA did.

GQ is about equal to G1+ which is about equal to seasonic focus 

 

G2 and G3 are above Focus+ but below whisper m/rmx 2018

 

G1 is garbage

Aren't they based on the same FSP ACRF platform?

Those are EVGA PSU series names.

 

The first letter, G, stands for the series' efficiency rating- Gold.

For the second letter, no one really knows. EVGA spits out so many models I don't think even think they're acronyms.

Though it's true G3 was released after G2, which was after G1. And the G1+ is a revamp to the outdated G1.

 

But don't be fooled. Even a single letter difference in the name is enough to completely change the power supply's quality. They can even be made from different manufacturers.

 

It is best to read professional reviews. Such as the EVGA 650 G1+ review @ TomsHardware.

 

Alternatively, list your full system specs, and budget so we can assist in choosing the suitable power supply.
