Was reading here and they're both SeaSonic...only listed differences are the Japanese caps and the unit name (S12 vs unknown).
Also noticed that the V2, not the V1, is on the list of recommended PSUs.
They're priced closely, but not the same ($90 vs $100 before rebate).

Indeed the V2 is enormously better. FYI you can usually get it for cheaper by getting the XFX 650W Core Edition. Same internals. The old TX650 is alright but I wouldn't but it for that price when the new one costs about the same.

How would the V2 (or the XFX Core) compare to XFX's 650 XXX Edition?
Might as well open it up to others - I'm looking to replace the PSU in my sig. Modular is a big plus. Will be powering the sig rig, but will replace the GeForce with an HD 6870.

The TX650 was first Seasonic (S12 Energy+), then Channel Well PSHII (TX650-C), and with the TX650 V2 it's back to Seasonic. But as mentioned, the XFX Core platform is kind of identical. Corsair may have made their own modifications as they often do though, fwiw.

Whatever changes Corsair made probably got fed back in SeaSonic's production line, so all units based on that platform should have the same changes, regardless of what brand it's eventually sold under.

I'd be shocked if SeaSonic's OEM agreement with their customers didn't allow them to take at least inspiration from any changes their customers ordered. It will be down to each agreement how quickly any improvements from say Corsair, make it into other brands, like XFX. I'd expect SeaSonic would be allowed to put the best upgrades into their own branded units pretty much immediately however.

Plus of course, individual model performance varies, depending on the quality and specs of the parts each OEM chooses for their own models.
