AXP (known as Xion in the US) have been releasing many high performance products lately, trying to appeal to the widest possible user base of PC enthusiast. A while ago we had a look at one of AXP’s PSUs, the Supernova 800W which we found gave great performance for the price. Today we test another AXP PSU, the 1000W model of the Supernova series.
