EVGA Announces the B5 Series 80 Plus Bronze Power Supplies

Introducing the EVGA B5 power supplies, the latest power supplies to carry on the EVGA tradition of reliability, performance, and affordability. Here are 5 Facts about the new flagship for EVGA 80 PLUS Certified Bronze power supplies. The B5 power supplies provide maximum flexibility for system builders with a fully modular design and a small chassis across all models. At 150 mm length, the B5 power supplies provide solid, affordable power for all manner of system builds and cases.

Next, the B5 power supplies feature one of the most important standards for reliability - Japanese capacitors. Featuring 100% Japanese capacitors on the 850 W and 750 W models, the B5 power supplies will provide a safe and reliable power for years to come. (650 W B5 and 550 W B5 models use a Japanese main capacitor.) The ultra-quiet 135 mm FDB fan becomes silent when coupled with EVGA ECO mode to turn off the fan in low to medium loads. The larger fan and carefully tuned profile creates a quieter experience than the B3 power supplies.
Featuring an LLC Resonant design + DC to DC converter, EVGA B5 power supplies are up to 89% efficient - well above 80 Plus Bronze requirements. Moreover, the B5 power supplies are designed with modern standards, including ATX V2.52, for performance and stability.

It feels to me like 80+ Bronze PSUs should have been phased out a while ago. That said, 70 amps on the 12v rail sure sounds nice.

IMHO
It only matters for large installations with high power consumption, and mainly because of excessive heat and noise, and electricity bills isn't main decision factor, but ability to use less energy to setup additional units. For a typical desktop/office pc/htpc with consumption under 100W all of them (80+ whatever) equally efficient, except titanium and maybe some platinum units). And if you need 1-2 relatively low power PCs for your home or small office it's more economical to choose bronze over higher priced units because of possible savings on bills. Only two factors for me against bronze units: build quality and false advertising (like saying 750W on the incapable devices).

Anything under 80+ Gold should be banned.

consumers buy more bronze units then gold, platinum, and titanium put together. Corsair has said the CX line is their best selling line (it's also the best selling unit on Amazon). In fact the first two units that pop up on Amazon search for PSU are both 80 plus white. Every web site, including TPU, has a bronze unit in the their $700-900 builds and all the digital boutiques use 80 plus white and bronze units.

I'm not saying people should not get a gold unit instead just saying most PCs (even gaming PCs) don't have one.
