don't believe the par data at all. because if it's 120 at 60cm, at 12 inches it'll be 480. doesn't seem realistic to me.

My interpretation of the PAR data from the spec is as follows.
Given the fixture being mounted 55 cm from the substrate, the PAR would be 120 for an approx circular area of ~5 cm radius at the centre point of the light fixture.
Radiating out the PAR diminishes to ~65 at the corners of a tank of depth 50 cm.

Is this how you would interpret the PAR data as well?

This youtube is a test apparently for the original RGB A (based on the amazon link provided). It appears that WRGB2 is a 30% increase in wattage and supposedly new technology from the RGB A so hopefully one would expect a 30% increase from these values?

It's a good starting point but I don't think the 30% increase in wattage translates into 30% increase in par data otherwise you'd be able to work out the par data from the data they've given for their other light units.

It's likely, due to the peaks in the red and blue output from the combination RGB chips, that the PAR output per watt is higher than the older white LED's.

thanks for the help guys!
it appears that the par is quite promising, and close to highlight.

I have exactly that fixture and also a par-meter; maybe tonight I can do some measurements. (please allow me to reach the week end alive...)
I've been using that light on an ADA 45P. All I can say is that the output is very very high: I'm running it at 50-60% power for 8 hours with (I remember) more than 100 micromoles at the substrate . When I increased the power I had algae issues/nutrient concentrations falling.
