For the systems that run many big PCIe accelerators, multiple processors, and also power a small heating system, EVGA is producing the power supply for you. Coming in at 2000W, only the largest cases need apply.
This unit is rated for 80-Plus Gold even at the harder-to-achieve European 230V setting, and is built on a single-rail 12V design good for 166.6 A. For connectors, a total of 10 VGA cables will be in play, although we were not told how many of those would be 6-pin or 6+2-pin. There will be plenty to go around, for sure.
The unit is heavy, and EVGA told us that the G+ unit sits somewhere between their G1 and G2 series of power supplies. The unit does adhere to ATX 2.1 specifications we are told, and EVGA is aiming for a Q4 release.

Gasaraki88 - Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - linkWhat? So does this need a 20A power socket? The standard home 15A socket can't do 2000W.
Gasaraki88 - Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - linkOK, I see it now. It's a 220-240V only power supply.
DanNeely - Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - linkInteresting that they marked it 230V only on the label, because the pictures show a connector with horizontal blades instead of vertical ones that's typically paired with a 20A wall plug in the US.
lioncat55 - Tuesday, June 5, 2018 - linkThe plug on the power supply is a C19 connector and is used for a few things.
zodiacfml - Wednesday, June 6, 2018 - linkEVGA is already popular with miners. This PSU is obviously for these guys.
UnNameless - Friday, June 8, 2018 - linkI agree. I have both the EVGA 1600 T2 and the Corsair 1500 AXi and can attest that both are solid with me, personally, favoring the EVGA a bit for it's use of same facing cable retaining clips vs Corsair's opposed and the cables that come with EVGA are better suited for mining (tube sleeved vs flat variant of Corsair).
However one big gripe with EVGA is that their cables are 8pin + 6 pin and thus if you have 8+8 cards you have to order other cables. It's a pitty they don't offer 8 with 6+2 cables.
