My take on tea, technology, and our environment

Could More Efficient Processors Help Save Our Planet?

Posted by telecommatt on September 4, 2007

A friend of mine forwarded me an article looking at the power efficiency of Intel and AMD processors. The article is interesting in that it points out how correctly configuring your machine maximizes its efficiency. There’s an environmental side here too. More efficient machines use less energy. Data centers full of efficient machines could play a large role in a company’s role in protecting the environment. Less energy use = less carbon being spit into the air. In today’s data-driven world, this efficiency goes further than short-term cost savings. Maybe it’s time we hear more sales presentations based on environmental savings instead of dollar savings.

Thanks, Paul!
