Saw that much.

Anyone else find it ironic that, other than bronze, titanium is by far the least expensive and most common metal of the bunch?

considering gold is currently going for higher prices than platinum, and has been for the better part of a year, market value or rarity doesn't mean as much as historical public perception

that being said, something like "diamond" might have been better, although maybe they're saving that

granted, since Titanium seems to be 90+% across the board, as I said before, why not just go with a new "90 PLUS" spec since even 80 PLUS Platinum is almost always at or above 90%.

Because you're used to 80+. If someone came out w/ a new 90+ PSU, would you buy it? No, bc you don't yet know if that company is a fiasco.

SuperFlower advertised an 80PLUS Titanium PSU at Computex this year. I saw the PCB, it's extremely innovative.
