May 24th 2010, Computex Taipei, Taiwan –Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) continues its annual theme “Green Touch, Good Life” to showcase her Deep Green Technology and a whole series of power-efficiency motherboards at Computex Taipei @TWTC Nangang Exhibition Hall L631a from June 1st to June 5th, 2010, to demonstrates its commitment and achievement on technology innovation and Earth protection.
Confronting with the increasingly serious problem of global warming caused by higher level of CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions which impact negatively on the Earth and lead to natural disasters and greater risks for human health, ECS R&D team has been taking actions to implement the power-efficiency Deep Green Technology into the whole production process of motherboards to ensure power consumption down to 0.001W when systems are in soft-off mode. That is better than EuP’s standard of 0.25W by 20131. Deep Green Technology implementation enables each motherboard to reduce 1.161 kilogram carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per year which helps mitigate climate changes and keeps the Earth sustainable. ECS plans to implement Deep Green Technology into the whole process of production for all products including ECS' latest 6, 5 and 5 series Chipset by Intel®, as well as the latest 8 series Chipset by AMD™. It is equivalent to planting 2,902,500 trees, based on the calculation of 30 million pcs of motherboard sales per year2.
Starting from the theme “Green Touch, Good Life”, ECS has been implementing Green concepts in the process of product design, purchasing, production, sales, services, and recycling with all manufacturing processes. ECS leads the industry to announce “Deep Green Technology” for people to experience this state-of-the-art and lowest power consumption technology and fulfills the goal of sustainable development for the Earth.
1. EuP’s standard is 0.5W of PC power consumption and 0.25W of motherboard power consumption among PC’s when systems are in soft-off mode by 2013.
2. According to Bureau of Energy, Ministry of Economic Affairs’ statement on July 7, 2007, the power consumption per one degree electricity creates 0.636 kg CO2. One degree electricity stands for 1 w *hours/1000. A tree can absorb in average 12 Kg of carbon dioxide per year according to Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC).
