We’ve seen a recent rise in popularity of dual GPUs, Quad CPUs, even hex-core processors. While manufacturers are working on power efficiency for their products, the general trend has been higher energy consumption. Systems now feature more graphics cards, generally to increase the FPS in games or even possibly due to their excellent mining abilities (in the case of AMD cards). With an abundance of models in various wattages, there is a wider selection of choices available to consumers, and the once-lowly power supply has become a more critical component in modern systems.
Today we’re looking at a unit from Lepa, specifically the G Series 850W power supply, which comes with a partly modular design, flat cables, and 80Plus Gold certification. With a solid feature set and the ability to run a couple of high-end graphics cards, the Lepa G Series 850W looks like a promising power supply. Lepa is the sister company to Enermax, a company which is known to make some of the best power supplies on the market, though interestingly they are not the OEM on this particular unit.
So, can this non-Enermax Lepa unit measure up? Let’s take a closer look and find out.
