Intel Releases Energy Star Implementation Guidelines New paper developed in conjunction with the EPA designed to aid system integrators in developing more energy-efficient platforms SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 19, 2007 - Intel Corporation announced today that it has released a new implementation guide, developed in conjunction with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), that helps PC manufacturers and system integrators deliver ENERGY STAR*-qualified PCs based on Intel microprocessors and other system components. The new implementation guide provides large and small system integrators with key understandings on how to specify and test desktop PC, notebook PC, workstation computer and... Read more...
Intel Marks Energy-Efficient Milestone With 50-Watt, High-Performing Quad-Core Server Processors Processors Represent Nearly Ten-Fold Power Consumption Improvement in Less than 2 Years SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 12, 2007 - Further expanding its quad-core processor family line-up, Intel Corporation today announced two energy-efficient 50-watt server processors that represent a 35- to nearly 60-percent decrease in power from Intel's existing 80- and 120-watt quad-core server products. As companies increasingly focus on reducing electricity bills and cooling costs associated with their computing needs, these new processors, requiring just 12.5 watts of power for each of the four cores or processing...

Study Commissioned by AMD Reveals Scope of Annual U.S. Data Center Energy Consumption: 45 Billion kWh, at Cost of Nearly 3 Billion Dollars - AMD Calls for Increased Collaboration between Technology Industry and Government Officials to Track and Reduce Energy Consumption - NEW YORK - Feb. 15, 2007 - In a keynote address at the LinuxWorld OpenSolutions Summit in New York today, Randy Allen, corporate vice president, Server and Workstation Division, AMD (NYSE: AMD), revealed findings from a study that comprehensively calculated, for the first time, the energy consumed by national and global data centers annually. Addressing the need for thorough, credible estimates on data center power use, the... Read more...
Ultra Products Introduces New Line of Energy Efficient Power Supplies New X-Pro, X-Finity, and X3 series' will convert at least 80% of AC power into DC power, making for cooler, quieter performance across the board FLETCHER, OH - January 15th, 2006 - Ultra Products, has announced the launch of a new line of energy efficient (EE) power supplies that convert at least 80% of AC power into DC power, making for cooler, quieter performance across the board. Most power supplies on the market today only convert 70-80% of AC to DC. The new line of energy-efficient power supplies will include the 600W, 800W, and 1000W X-Pro EE series, the 600W, 800W, and 1000W X-Finity EE series, and the 600W, 800W,... Read more...
Michael Schuette from Lost Circuits has an article on-line detailing the power and performance characteristics of three energy efficient processors, the Core 2 Duo E6300 and the AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ and 4600+.  As usual, Lost Circuits does a great job with the technical analysis.  For another take on AMD's Energy Efficient processors, take a look at what we had to say right here.  "With the release of the Core2 Duo line of CPU, Intel has made a complete turn-around in their line-up, pushing the new party line of instructions per Watt. At first glance, primarily the lower speed grades are target for energy-efficiency claims... Read more...
The guys over at the Tech Report put AMD's new energy efficient X2 3800  up against Intel's Core 2 E6300. Both of these processors have low power draw, are cheap, and are at the bottom of their respective product lines. Those of you who are thinking about putting together a SFF or HTPC box should pay attention. "The Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Energy Efficient Small Form Factor, meanwhile, has a different mission in life. It's not bad on the desktop, with a WorldBench score better than a Pentium D 960 and decent performance in today's games. But the EE SFF can't keep up with the E6300 on the performance front, and it's not much of an overclocker, either. Instead, the EE SFF would... Read more...
Hello everyone. We've just taken a look at a pair of energy efficient Athlon 64 X2 processors, more specifically the A64 X2 4600+ and the X2 3800+. These two processors have max TDPs of 65w and 35w, respectively, and as such they sip power and radiate much less heat than their "full-powered" counterparts. Here's a snip from the article... "Both AMD and Intel have made great technological strides when it comes to power consumption in their current CPU architectures. Both the Athlon 64 X2 and Core 2 Duo processor cores have elaborate clock gating schemes to allow their cores to ramp down during periods of inactivity or light... Read more...
Energy efficiency and power consumption are major concerns for modern computing architectures, whether you're an Enthusiast, an IT Manager in a Data Center, or simply an ecologically minded individual.  Let's face it, the modern high end computer is like a small space heater for all intents and purposes, and where there's heat, there's power consumption -- typically a lot of power consumption. Both AMD and Intel have made great technological strides when it comes to power consumption in their current CPU architectures.  Both the Athlon 64 X2 and Core 2 Duo processor cores have elaborate clock gating schemes to allow their cores to ramp down during periods...

We've been hard at work in the labs again here at HotHardware, putting AMD's latest installment of CPUs for the AM2 platform, through the wringer.  This time the focus is on "Energy Efficient" processors, as AMD likes to call them.   Here we have a look at the 65W EE Athlon 64 4600  running flat out at 100% CPU utilization and its 1.14 voltage settings by default. We've also gotten our hands on a 35 Watt efficient 3800+ dual core CPU as well.  We'll have full details on the performance, heat, power and noise characteristics of these new chips, in the days ahead.  Don't touch that dial!...

Intel Boosts Energy Efficient Performance With First Dual-Core Low-Voltage Intel Xeon Processor HILLSBORO, Ore., March 14, 2006 – Intel Corporation is outfitting server, storage and telecommunications equipment makers with a new ingredient for squeezing more performance out of space– and power–constrained environments. It is the first low–voltage Intel(R) Xeon(R) processor to combine dual–core technology with Intel's innovative power management capabilities, helping to boost energy–efficient price/performance with up to two to four times the performance–per–watt of previous Intel Xeon processors and platforms.** The historical need for raw computing...
