FSP has their own double forward + DC-DC midrange unit now it seems. Too bad it falls behind Seasonic's AT platform, especially in ripple suppresion. Also, 2x PCI-E on 750W unit? AYFKM?

I doubt this is FSP, looks to be InWin themselves as the soldering is too good.
Like wise, that's not FSP's standard affair when it comes to capacitor choice or fan.

I do agree though, this unit should come with at least 4 PCIe connectors.

It is not made by FSP, but it's a FSP design

I don't know what's the deal exactly, if you trace the UL number you'll find the name Brite Plus Electronics, someone said it's in fact InWin's own manufacturing arm and that wouldn't be a stretch since they are indeed one of the larger Case OEMs as well, they also sell Aurum units in Asia which again aren't manufactured by FSP, so I think they work with FSP in the sense that they license preexisting designs or employ FSP's R&D to design specifically for them.

InWin probably hire FSP (their R&D dept.) for a custom design, then manufacture it themselves...

I wouldn't be surprised if they were using another companies (especially one the size of FSP) for R&D purposes on power supplies.
Though; given the fan, caps, & soldering; I'd easily chuck this guy up to being made by InWin.

Though, none of the tech in this unit is new to InWin, as they've done a bronze 600w unit with a DC-DC converter (on 3.3v, but group-reg 12v/5v) before.

Admittedly, such design isn't really bringing that much, maybe a little bump in efficiency on +3.3V, but crossload behavior stays the same. I wonder, how do production costs of such units stack up vs standard indy +3.3V.

It might be a minor cost saving maneuver, because parts wise; it can be cheaper. I doubt, though, that they are saving more than 20 cents per unit.
