The EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G6 is a good PSU, but it has some strong competition.
With super-compact dimensions for an 850W unit and high build quality, the EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G6 definitely looks like an upgraded version of the corresponding FSP-made G5 model. It also achieves high enough overall performance to back up those first impressions, which puts it close to the competition from Corsair (RM850x), XPG (Core Reactor 850), Cooler Master (V850 Gold V2), and Seasonic (GX-850). Nonetheless, the older 850 G3 unit achieves notably higher performance, taking the lead from all aforementioned products. It is a shame that that EVGA stopped its cooperation with Super Flower.
The new EVGA G6 line consists of Seasonic-made models with capacities ranging from 750W to 1000W. We have already evaluated the flagship G6 unit, and its performance was amazing. We are eager to see if the middle member of the line, with 850W max power, will achieve the same high-performance levels and earn a place in our best PSUs article.
