Seems like possibly something in the VRMs has some digital IC involved? It still has a traditional APFC controller, LLC resonant controller, and even a normal PWM controller used in the DC-DC.

I am pretty sure i read somewhere its digtal or part digtal but i really cant recall where i read that
I could havde mixed it up with that new Thermaltake series thats digtal
This from techpower up
PSU maker High Power unveiled the Astro PT line of premium PSUs, which as the name might suggest, are 80 Plus Platinum certified. Astro PT is a "smart" PSU, which comes in 600W and 700W capacities, features a single +12V rail design, and a few impressive innovations, such as a WiFi-based connection to your PC, using which it interfaces with a monitoring and fan-control software.
Why WiFi and why not USB, you ask? Because WiFi allows overclockers to use an external device, such as a notebook, to monitor the PSU, so the bench machine the PSU is powering isn't affected by monitoring software. This software lets you monitor the various power domains, and tinker with the unit's fan-curve. The Astro PT also features an in-built power load meter that works like Kill-a-Watt, and measures power consumption at the AC receptacle. The Astro PT also features a digital VRM design, partially modular cabling with flat modular cables, and a 135 mm fan. The PSU supports low-power C-states of the new Core "Haswell" processors.
That could be what they mean by digtal
And sure hope this is not another Corsair Link epic fail
