    At the moment it is the most powerful passive unit with some digital thingy on top of that.
    Nope, there are even more powerful fanless units!
    Unless you're precisely talking about units that are both fanless and digital - in which case it's true, because so far it's the only unit like this.

    Yep, both. Exactly as Enermax claims

    Next to ATX, in energetic industry there are loads of quite small while many-kilowatt passive units for exaple into switch-boards.

    I can recall the KRPW-FL600W/92+ off the top of my head, quest for silence: http://www.gdm.or.jp/review/2013/1128/50297/3 - it's an ATNG APED P v1.3 made fanless. Talk about beefy heatsinks!

    Is it sort of fanless Fractal Newton / Rosewill Fortress (just to have a guess about the relevant performances)?

    Well... not really. This unit does not use an MCU in place of either the PWM or supervisor IC, so it's not really digital. Unless you just mean "digital reporting".

    Well, that is also true, but I did not want to be nitpicking and mostly stayed with Enermaxes definition. I should be nice on them at least from time to time, after the TriAthlor 300 W passed with -0.5 %

    I heard the Enermax is…well, that is classified anyway…

    It does allow you to toggle single/multiple rails and change their OCP settings, which for me is already a big step above simple monitoring.

    Yes, sorta.
