It's about time.

I understand that one of the requirements will be for PSUs to maintain at least 80% efficiency across their entire operating range.

Most people don't know this, but lightly loaded PSUs tend to operate less efficiently than heavily loaded ones. Some PSUs with efficiency ratings in the low 90s at full load can drop to as low as 50% when under a light load.
