A new beast has been released in the hardware jungle, the LEPA G1600-MA power supply. With the growing trend of more people running dual and Tri high-end graphic cards alongside of their six and eight core processors, the LEPA G1600 should be warmly embraced the high-end performance crowd, after all we’re talking about a 1600 watt unit that peaks out at 1700 watts.
Lepa probably isn’t the best known name on the power supply market, and there’s a good chance you haven’t heard of them. And while we don’t normally advocate using power supplies from virtual unknowns, Lepa is a bit different. Ecomaster is the distributor of not only Lepa units, but Enermax as well. And Enermax is probably one of the most respected names in the industry. And true enough, when we saw this Lepa G1600-MA power supply up close and personal, it looked very much like an Enermax unit. And then when we opened it up, surprise, it looked just like an Enermax unit. So essentially while Lepa may not be well known, Enermax is, and the reality is you are getting an Enermax unit at a more affordable price.
Question is: does this Lepa power supply perform like an Enermax unit? Let’s find out.
