Tossing out a thought but has any company attempted using GaN based technology in a Flex ATX PSU? I'm wondering how beneficial it would be?

For instance, we know the Achilles heel for the form factor is noise, so would using higher quality GaN components reduce the need for a loud fan?

Any thoughts?

Is this a thing? GaN PSUs? This should be a thing.

I've only seen mention in larger PSUs like corsair ax1600

Yeah, that PSU was the one that made me think about GaN's use. If they can make a 1600W ATX PSU, I'm wondering if they could use it to make a Flex unit that might be more refined and quiet. Their might even be more room for modular cable ports.
