There are two designs: Sabre Lite and Sabre AI.

Sabre Lite uses a number of DC/DC converters to power a CPU, while Sabre for AI uses a PMIC to give all voltages. Can anybody explain what pros and cons provides each of the approaches? As TI always provides reference designs based on PMIC's I never asked such questions. Now I see two options and begin to doubt.
