When it comes to high performance computer power supply units, Seasonic is one of the most reputable manufacturers. The company serves as the OEM of many other well-known brands, such as Corsair and NZXT, but they also have their own retail branch. A couple of month ago, we reviewed one of their most advanced and powerful products, the Platinum 1000W; an exceptional power supply by all means, which however is meant for hardcore enthusiasts and highly demanding professional users alone.
Today we will be taking a look at another highly advanced product from Seasonic, yet one meant for the bulk of advanced users and gamers, the G-series 550W power supply. As the series name suggests, the G-series products come with an 80Plus Gold certification. The current pricing of the specific model we are going to examine $89.99 shipped. For an 80Plus Gold certified and modular 550W power supply, this is not a bad deal at all nowadays. Will however the G-series 550W power supply perform anywhere near as well as the monstrous Platinum 1000W did? We will find out in this review.
