About what I expected.

Guess their all the same platform.

Not really a surprise though.

It's a good power supply. Too close in price to the G2 though.

I agree. The way I interpret this offering by EVGA is to be a semi-modular version of the G2/GS platform in order to offer a wider range of budget options to the consumer. But the pricing just isn't right. Once the new-ness of it wears off, I'm sure it'll fall more in line price-wise.

3 diffrent manufacturers though.

GS-Seasonic

G2-Super Flower

GQ-FSP

to offer a wider range of budget options to the consumer. But the pricing just isn't right.

I'm pretty confused about this unit.

There's already the B2 which appeals to the more budget oriented people.

My wording was pretty poor. I didn't mean the actual electronic platform, I just meant the "evga power supply" as platform. Thanks for clearing up that difference though, it's nice to see it in a simple form.

While the B2 is a great budget option, many people don't consider it because it's "only bronze-rated" and always opt for the gold-rated supplies, even if they aren't as reliable (usually via other manufacturers or the G1 series), because they think a gold-rated supply means a better one. It's an unfortunate commonality in the marketplace because not all consumers research.

Some research will go a long way with power supplies.

this is a different platform from the GQ 850 and 1000. this looks aurum based.

I heard someone else say that too.

Appears it's upgraded. Doesn't perform like the G1.

How many lines of modular gold units does EVGA actually need? Maybe they're just addicted to making good PSUs.

well, if the market leading corsair is a proper example, this strategy is a winning one. than again there is rosewill and thermaltake who aren't "winning" like this.... ah well, EVGA know what they wanna do.
