    The one in the second link seems like more the one featured in SG-1. But it's been a long time since I've seen any Stargate, so maybe someone else could give you a more accurate information on this.

    Well, it was not clearly stated in SG-1 that there are two different supergates. We talked about with plumber in my MW fan fiction thread too.

    https://forum.gateworld.net/threads/...galaxy-in-2020

    1. "Beachhead" type supergate = the parts were capable of going through a normal stargate's wormhole while Vala's cargo ship (tel'tac) could fit into a space as the energy shields keep them away anyway.

    2. "Camelot" type supergate = this one is much larger. You can see the scale difference when Carter is beamed next to it and she walks on one to open a panel for the controll chrystals in 9x20.

    They were also not talking about it how could a black hole charge up a supergate. They said something before that a black hole can provide infinite energy, but if we have got a black hole on both side then they should interfere with the dialing, shouldn't they? But anyway that is techno blabla, so we have to accept this explanation.
    "I was hoping for another day. Looks like we just got a whole lot more than that. Let's not waste it."

    "Never underestimate your audience. They're generally sensitive, intelligent people who respond positively to quality entertainment."

    "Individual science fiction stories may seem as trivial as ever to the blinder critics and philosophers of today, but the core of science fiction, its essence, has become crucial to our salvation, if we are to be saved at all."

    Actually question is more about space between segments and inner diameter. In episodes this information is not quite corect, so basically question is about which one you like more.

    One part of the black holes is that they still have the same mass as the planets that were collapsed to form them, so gravity and time dilation won't really have that much of an effect. At the same time, they weren't really true black holes, but merely "micro-singularities", which is why they weren't visible. And in essence black holes can be similar to wormholes, so I believe by artificially collapsing planets to form singularities allows the Ori to create their own "connection" between the two gates. It's implied that the two supergates only connect to one another, with the "Pegasus project" being a hack to bypass that. It's possible that when activated, the gates use the singularities not only to power them, but also to form the wormhole itself.
