VIA chips "are the greenest" - Green Summit starts in California

by Guy J Kewney | posted on 12 March 2007

All the headlines about "low power PCs" went to the Crusoe chip set - for several years - at a time when an indignant VIA Technologies was able to claim even better power management technology. Revenge will be sought this week at the Green California Summit and Exposition taking place in Sacramento, California from 13-14 March 2007, booth 1030.

The choice of location - Sacramento is the capital of the State of California - will mean that attendance will be down in terms of high-tech companies, compared with what you'd expect in San Jose or San Francisco, in Silicon Valley. But it should attract Government delegates.
Key products by VIA partners at the Green California event include compact thin clients from HP, Wyse and DevonIT, slimline ultra mobile devices from a range of leading vendors including Samsung, OQO and TabletKiosk, plus the Everex StepNote NC1500 notebook and the mass storage Petabox from Capricorn Technologies. Also on show will be the VIA Carbon Free PC reference design, an advanced approach to clean computing.

Via produced this quote from one partner: "Environmental sustainability is a key element of global citizenship at HP, and we are dedicated to reducing our environmental impact, as well as that of our customers, partners, and suppliers by providing a variety of energy-efficient desk-based solutions for business customers," said Jeff Groudan, worldwide vice president of marketing, Business PCs, HP.

Groudan added: "As part of our participation in the Green California event, HP will be showing our thin client systems featuring VIA power-efficient silicon platforms, which are the most energy efficient desktop computing solutions on the market from HP today."
