Rejoice, 750W and 850W versions - you guys planning to review? These are 80 Plus Platinum certified.

Is it the same as the SuperFlower one we've had (The 1200W model)? I don't see a huge point if it's basically the same PSU :P

It doesn't say. Probably 50% is my guess.

 

Edit: Yes, that is correct.

Not too bad. Any ideas why they couldn't make it a constant Wattage rather than as a percentage for load-fan?

My best guess are the electronic components used. Usually, the higher rated components will dissipate relatively less heat at the same load (It's a lower percentage wise) in the context of safety margins. I've never designed a PSU before, but that is probably what it is.
