CeBIT 2008 - Previewing The Trends

Asus - Improving The EPU Technology

ASUS will be presenting a new version of its EPU (Energy Processing Unit) which is already in use on some of its motherboards. The EPU allows the CPU to regulate the power supply circuitry on the motherboard, enabling energy savings of up to 80% on ASUS boards when the processor is idle. A bundled tool called AI Gear3 monitors the CPU's current power consumption and calculates the C=2 savings resulting from the EPU technology. ASUS claims the new version of EPU will work at an efficiency of 50%. The following new boards which will be on display at CeBIT are equipped with the new and improved version of the EPU - P5K/EPU , P5K SE/EPU, Rampage Formula and P5E3 Premium/WiFi@n.
