They're CWT DSGs. Take a look at the Corsair TX950 or Glacialtech GP-AX950AA to see how they'll perform. Also, double-forward conversion is a "special" feature now?

No, hardly. Double-forward conversion is a standard and extremely common topology in modern PSUs. The majority of efficient PSUs nowadays use it, with a handful of platforms using other designs, like LLC resonant or phase-shifted ZVS full bridge.
