    There are generally two ways to provide the oomph to flush a toilet: gravity (the tank is higher than the bowl), or pressure assisted (the water pressure stores water in a bladder so it gets assisted by that pressure when you flush). There is another way, but it requires quite large water supply pipes - often used in commercial buildings. They rely on a really large volume of water being released in a very short time available from those large pipes (generally at least 1"). Toto uses gravity for all of its toilets except for a couple of the really high end ones that (I think) use a pump.

    Both G-Max and Power Gravity use a 3" flush valve and similar trapway.

    G-Max has a higher water level in the tank, and a quick closing Red flapper.
    Power gravity has a lower water level in the tank, and a slower Blue flapper.

    I've used with one with success.

    The Eco tanks use a Red flapper that is weighted down. That closes even quicker.

    I sell the above toilets in Cotton White too, but I don't have the screaming pricing on those.
