Hello. IS any difference between Seasonic Prime Ultra Platinum vs Seasonic Prime Ultra Titanium? I ask because in shop there isnt Titanium is not in stock.
Only Platinum is avaliable. So buy Seasonic Prime Ultra Platinum 850W?

Afaict the main difference between platinum and titanium is that titanium is defined at 10% load, while platinum is only defined at 20% load and higher. This matters, because many systems only consume a small fraction of their PSUs rating at idle.

While true, the counter-point to this is that when you're only using say 50w, a few percent of efficiency either way is really negligible overall. You do want to watch efficiency under load of course.

Titanium is more or less a waste of money for most people. The amount of power you will save versus the price difference, will take a very long time to recoup.
