This Computer manufacturer is taking the environment seriously and has built a low power system using none other than the AMD BE-2300.
AMD is a wise choice for such a PC....AMD is leading the way!

Intel has ground to make up I believe

Green is in, that's for sure, with electronics manufacturers queuing up to tout their environmentally friendly credentials

The processor is an AMD Athlon X2 BE-2300 dual-core chip running at 1.9GHz; Very PC tells us that free upgrades to the faster 2.1GHz chip are also available. The 'BE' is a codename for AMD's line of energy-efficient Brisbane processors, which draw only 45W of power compared to the 90-110W used by greedier chips

It comes with 1GB of DDR2 memory, which is sufficient to run the supplied Windows Vista Home Premium


Quote:
when idle, power consumption sat just below 50W, only rising to around 60-70W when put under strain

50 watt idle, 60-70 under load? About the same power consumption as my P4 HTPC rig. I guess I'm saving the planet too.
January 12, 2008 7:30:41 PM

45W?!? Damn!!! Doesn't AMD have any Low Wattage Chips???

How about a Chip using 2.5w idle and only 27w under load.
Oh, and magnitudes faster.

Or Perhaps You want Intels Cheaper 35w TDP lower end chips that come in cheaper than the BE.

Thanks for the amusing article.

IF AMD is saving the planet, them in going to revert over to intel, just for the shear spite that i am using that bit more energy and contributing to "global warming".

I hate environmentalists, there like the modern day hippie....Im sure they would all be happy if we lived in wood houses and drank boiled water as food. :fou: 
January 12, 2008 8:59:08 PM

AMD's killing the world if anything. Howz that green?
January 12, 2008 11:06:56 PM

global warming is a religion not a science

when you factor in how slow the cpu's are the 50w = 200 intel watts

70w intel cpu = 200watt amd cpu
January 12, 2008 11:10:08 PM

First of all, I would simply question this article's validity. The author confused TDP with power consumption. They are not the same.


Secondly, this is getting old. Grow up.

Enough said.
January 12, 2008 11:18:46 PM

Global warming is no religion. It will always happen, no matter what. After global warming comes the Ice Age. The true question is, do we humans speed global warming up?

The best thing I can do is go off topic and get this thread locked.

Ahhhh good ol thunderman. Always doing something useless.

I could point out that Intel could release the tera-scale CPU and have that in full use that uses barely 62watts but does the job of 130 regualr CPUs. Yea its a bit more but when you factore in the work it does it cuts its watts used down a lot where as anything from AMD can still only act as one CPU.

I think it would be interesting to see the tera-scale setup as a hom CPU or even just in the server arena for now. Maybe AMD should try for a tera chip.

This desktop consumes only 60w-70w when on full load, with a below 50w idle consumption....very good by anyones standards. I made a thread sometime ago with proof that AMD is still the better choice for Idle dual core consumption. To have lower consumption...you'd need an AMD Turion Laptop. There was a reason why this manufacturer used AMD for their desktop and for a good reason. This manufacturer has good business sense and I can predict many sales.

These low power AMD X2 processors are impressive and offer decent performance to. AMD innovation!

It is, but certainly not good enough for E2160.

50W peak at load, for the entire computer.

Unfortunately, Turion loses out to Centrino in terms of power consumption, and performance. With the debut of 45nm mobile Core 2, the gap is only getting bigger.

I admire your inability of calling a spade a spade. AMD had their moments, but they currently are not the winner here.

OOOOOOOOh yes

AMD have given us a low powered processor

Nothing new there then :) 

and if it relates to energy consumption they won that too
because no one wants to use one anyway

and im off to B&Q to get a 99p bucket to throw up after Thundermans replies

The Pentium Dual core series is the lowest power consumption DC processors Intel currently offer....their chipsets are power hungry. An AMD chipset motherboard is not only cheaper, also lower in power consumption. Intel motherboards are expensive and the cheap ones suck....it would of destroyed the whole concept of this being a cheap low priced PC. The manufacturer would have have weighed up the pro's and cons of using Intel or AMD...then decided AMD was the better logical choice and what their customers want.

Glad that you could take the time to respond to anyone questioning your other posts

I'm surprised you didn't start another thread with this paragraph, actually I guess it's because you haven't caused enough of a poostorm already in this thread.

I had to take points off for reusing the exact same strategy over and over again but why change something that works for you?
