The day when the 1st smart maker will focuses on 300-500w 80+ Titanium PSU and the market by storm.

10-20% efficiency (30-50 / 60-100w) is what people load on their PC's 95% of the time.

Now that GPU's like the GTX 1080 with a TDP of 180 watts will only be designed for two way SLI and CPU's like the i7-6700k overclocked only use about 130+ watts its hard to see why you would ever need a PSU that has more than 800 watts of clean output :/ Which would still give you a 200 watt buffer with everything overclocked and running fans, drives, pump etc.

I ran a Corsair CX430 with a FX-8320 @4.5GHz with a HD 7950 @1250MHz GPU/1650MHz VRAM and two HDD's, 3x120mm fans. Its not the same CX430 you can buy now, it was a B grade high quality PSU rebadged for Corsair and used Jap capacitors. Had clean 25mw ripple at 430 watts output and could put out 460 watts within specs. I did that just to see what i could get away with lol, but it ran cool at full load and ran 24/7/365 as a gaming machine, work station, and a media/file server. But now i run a PC Power & Cooling Silencer MK III 850 that i picked up for $80 because OCZ bought them out and they dropped the price on the "PC Power & Cooling" brand. It was also open box, but a 7 year warranty covered by OCZ is fine with me.

1% to 5% efficiency would interest me, I need about 700-800 Watts for SLI but at idle the computer draws less than 30W on the Wall...

I don't agree, Seasonic already makes gold efficiency low wattage PSU's, no they aren't titanium, but they also don't sell very well either. Even the reviews say "this PSU is great but why would i buy a 450w psu when I can get a 600w for the same price", there comes a point of diminishing returns and wattage that low isn't worth building in that high quality. The less informed enthusiasts out there make up the bulk of the market and they aren't buying it.

I'm trying to wrap my head around the connections.

Assuming those 6 connectors with a single row of five pins each are for the SATA/Molex connectors, I'm guessing you can't plug in all 16 SATA and 12 Molex at the same time?

10 PCIe connectors is a configuration I am unfamiliar with. Is this for bitcoin mining? Is that still profitable with GPUs? Maybe it's for a massive Tesla rig.
