    True. But so does the HXi and yet it's not sold as a "Digital PSU". I think it's misleading.

    Well, sure, it is all the same stuff, I don't think anybody here thinks otherwise.

    But…does the HXi come in 550W passive model? Or at least *any* 550watt model?

    Not right this minute.. but unless you develop a platform to accommodate 450~650W, you're not going to save any money if you sell a platform that also supports 750W+ as well because the total BOM cost really isn't that much less. But we've already had this discussion.

    IIRC, somewhere buried in this forum, SeasonicRep stated that their 520FL is based upon their Platinum 860/1000, differently from the smaller 400FL and 460FL.
    In case, according to you, are they loosing money on that unit (sold also by Silverstone and XFX)?

    Cost of PSU is not limited to cost of BOM. The 520FL shares the same topology as the higher wattage units, but it doesn't share the same PCB, layout, etc. It has it's own NRE costs that are not shared with the higher wattage PSUs. Since the 520FL does share the same platform as the 400 and 460FL, they can spread the NRE costs across those three wattages. If someone like Corsair decided to make an HX650i, it would have to share a platform with an HX550i and HX450i to justify the NRE costs. Since sales, for Corsair at least, of higher end (Gold and up) 450W, and often times 550W, PSUs is < 1000 pieces a month world-wide, it doesn't make financial sense to invest in the NRE costs for just one wattage.

    Different PCB, how's that? They are pretty much the same.

    "Pretty much the same" and "the same" are different? I'm not sure... are they actually the same? I could be wrong.

    Only difference I know about which affects PCB is that 660W+ models have two input caps in parallel.
