The digitally controlled AX860i and AX760i PSUs are made by Flextronics, but their counterparts that miss the "i" are made by Seasonic. They use a conventional design to achieve the best possible performance; that is, if you can call such a high-end platform conventional. The price margin between the AXi and AX units is definitely noticeable, but is not crazily high, so it is up to the user to decide whether spending a couple extra bucks to get the shiny new platform with the monitor/control software as a cherry on the pie is worth it, or whether picking the already proven Seasonic platform that may lack all the digital gismos, while fully exploiting the conventional control ICs to achieve record breaking performance, would be a better choice. This is indeed a hard dilemma, but we are pretty sure that things will be crystal clear with solid test data results being available by the end of this review.
