    For those wondering the difference between this and the XC (as I was and just spent the time looking so you don't have to):
     
    It appears to be the same as XC version plus a "Smart Thermal Protection" feature on the 12VHPWR connector at the PSU side and it allows a little bit more of a total power excursion (235% vs. 200%, GPU excursion is the same).
     
    Edit: as an aside, I don't see any extra pins or anything for their 12VHPWR cable and they specifically say "on the PSU side", so I'm assuming they have a thermistor in the PSU and it won't detect an over-temperature situation on the GPU side at all. This is, as said, an assumption though, so I'd be interested to see if that's wrong and they've come up with something very clever.

    Unless things changed, the thermistor is only on the PSU-side.  Wires get hot eventually on both sides, and that's where the main feature comes in to play.  Otherwise, there could be limitations on what cables you could use with this feature, and leaving it on the PSU side means you can use your third party cables (although "not officially supported") without losing the feature.
     
    I would say that the FTW and XC are more than just slightly different power supplies.  I think these will review well when review sites get their hands on one.

    They may be, but to clarify, I was only referencing the stated specifications/features. Those are the only stated differences. The performance on things like voltage spikes, noise suppression, etc. may be different. I wouldn't pass any good/bad judgement for any power supply without a review.

    The thermal protection circuit has been added to the 12VHPWR PCIe
    connector on the PSU side. If the 12VHPWR cable is not correctly
    connected to the PSU 12VHPWR PCIe connector, the circuit will activate
    protection when temperature anomalies are detected. Additionally, the
    rating wattage of 12VHPWR is 600W. If the Graphic card draws
    overcurrent during heavy load, the circuit will also activate
    protection when temperature anomalies are detected by 12VHPWR PCIe
    connector on PSU.

    One of the other benefits of the FTW series PSU is the transformer, LLC/PFC/SR
    MOSFETs and main capacitors are optimized and higher-graded than XC.

    Thanks for the details, Alex. That ^ would explain the 23% increase in total power excursion rating.

    frankly said 3Y warranty is ridiculous even for gold units, when other vendors offer more than 3x as much.
     
    at least 5-7 years would be expected for a gold rated PSU.
     
    a bit sad since ...

    ... looks good and close to Platinum efficiency should be Platinum in Europe with 230V.

    I guess many just won't buy due to the lack of LT warranty, too much honesty harms.

    Honestly I have never really needed a 10 year warranty on a PSU since I normally have changed the PSU by then. Probably 5 years is about my replacement window for a PSU honestly.

    Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

    The 3 year warranty reinforces the mindset out there that EVGA is on the verge of collapse. If it were a lower classed unit like the XC it wouldn't make many waves but a premium unit like the FTW? That's cause for instant concern when comparing past high end units (with 10yr warranties).

    3 year warranty gives you a good idea how long EVGA might be around for.

    If they go under before then they'll have a 3rd party company take care of warranty for them which is an industry standard practice.  Personally I'm not comfortable buying anything else from them.

    Here's to hoping that if an ATX 3.0 Titanium model comes out, we'll see similar warranties as before. I'll probably skip this one for now

    I'm hoping that won't be the case. I wish I knew my original forum details, but EVGA has been with me since some of my first builds as a kid, and I'd hate to see the company die; it really has been one of the only, if not the only, respectable PC-DIY vendors.
     
    But I'd also be surprised if it really did go that way. The death of Nvidia GPUs does not need to be the death of EVGA; I will/would've continued to buy EVGA powersupplies, motherboards, etc. And I feel like, at the very least, surely the brand-name alone is worth enough for someone to buy it up [though that'd be worrying in and of itself].

    That said, if the warranty changes are indicative of quality changes or lack of faith in their ability to continue operating N years from now, I'd prefer to see EVGA die in style and simply end things early rather than slowly degrade into yet another Asus, Gigabyte, or whatever else living on life support & draining the consumer of every penny possible.

    Even on something like the XC, it's strange to me. I have several EVGA powersupplies that have been recycled throughout our household that were far less expensive and still had 10+ year warranties; my brother's PC is still using an old EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650G, the one with the silly metal "handlebar" or whatever, that I bought for, like, ~$70ish, give or take, in 2012, and its warranty finally only expired this year.

    For something in the $200+ range, though, it's somewhere between worrying for the future of the company and somewhat unacceptable; Be Quiet, Superflow, Seasonic, and FSP all offer similarly specced, likely similar quality 80+ gold-titanium PSUs in the same price bracket with 10+ year warranties. I'd still rather deal with EVGA than any of the aforementioned companies, of course, but that said, it's a bad look, IMO -- again, it gives off worrisome vibes.

    I've been fortunate enough to not need any warranty on a PSU, except a DOA Corsair ages ago; luckily none of mine have ever died or taken anything out with them. But PSUs are one of those items I don't really skimp on usually, and so I've been able to re-use them across several generations or builds for friends/family; the Seasonic 1000W Platinum I bought for my X79 build in 2011 is still working well, the SuperNOVA NEX 650G from 2012 is still in use, etc.

    For me, it's just the peace of mind that, even though it's an overbuilt, high-end PSU that will likely last a couple of decades as long as it isn't abused, I don't want to have to treat a perfectly fine PSU as some sort of nuclear e-waste 3-years down the line in fear that if it blows up and destroys some new system, the manufacturer will tell me to get f---ed and deal with it myself.

    They have officially stated this before.

    @EVGATech_AlexH can we please get any info on the 14th gen refresh bios updates for 14900K and the other new chips? I received multiple cut and paste responses from EVGA tech support that provide no answer to whether or not the bios update is going to happen. If it's not going to happen, please just be blunt about that and tell us so we can move on with our lives, if EVGA is going to continue supporting current products please make that announcement so we can get an idea of a timeline. This is need to know information for current customers that have purchased products with extended warranty. It would be good for EVGA to provide some clarity on this issue if they want to retain current customers for the future.

    Is there anywhere I can go to get the pinout for the 1000W FTW unit?
