Small Computers: Less Power, Less Waste, Less Money

{mosimage}

This week at the cialis once daily Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, AMD announced a new, open standard for small PCs. This is try it viagra uk still in development, and the specifications will not be finalized until later this year. But there are several features in this new specification that ecogeeks should love. The DTX is designed for a processor of up to 35 watts, encouraging and tramadol fedex no prescription supporting low power processors for computers. The benefits of the small form factor include:
  • Electricity cost savings
  • Take up less space for both practical and aesthetic purposes
  • Enables systems that are quiet
  • Do not generate excessive heat

The new DTX standard also allows four motherboards to be made on a standard manufacturing panel (versus two ATX motherboards from the same panel), so fewer resources are consumed (and fewer effluents produced) and the cost can also be reduced. The Mini-DTX fits six motherboards on the same panel for even greater production benefit.

The DTX standard is also backward compatible with existing ATX standard, so that older expansion hardware can still be used. This keeps old hardware from becoming obsolete and allows more recycled use of equipment rather than requiring it to be scrapped.

That doesn't make sense
written by Jon, January 30, 2007
It seems to me that smaller computers would generate MORE heat - everything is packed together more tightly, less room for natural ventilation, etc. Certainly if the spec calls for low power processors, that's good, but I don't think that necessarily has anything to www.y-e-n.net do with the case form factor.

However, it sounds like we're moving in the right direction towards more environmentally-friendly computers, which is definitely a good thing.

"It seems to me that smaller computers would generate MORE heat"

Now THAT is an unreasonable assumption. Heat is heat, if you put a smaller container around the heat, how in the world could there be MORE heat? That's idiotic.

mac mini 65w

The Apple mac mini is 65w, virtually silent & generates an unoticeable amount of heat. We have 6 200w-300w machines at our work, the impact of dropping to 6 65w machines would be incredible.

Even better, barry, if you could use six of viagra tablets these DTX machines for less than the viagra online best electricity that just one of your current machines uses!

Could this be the future ? or is it like the cars, there's always somebody who wants something bigger faster etc ?
