    "Running at up to 94 per cent efficiency bodes well for lower electricity bills"

    Not with a 1000W power supply....

    Actually, more so if you're using the best part of 1000W. 80% efficiency on a low- to mid-range PC will mean ~25-50W extra draw, whereas on a high end machine it could mean >200W. 94% efficiency could bring that down to ~ 50W instead - a huge saving on electricity

    Sure, you'd need dual SB-E Xeons and a couple of GTX590s to hit those levels of power draw, but if that's the type of system you're using a 94% efficienct kW PSU is exactly what you need

    That price wouldn't be bad too considering the price of Platinum units ATM.
