“Lord, keep my memory green.”
That’s a great quote from one of best novelists during the Victorian era. If Charles Dickens was writing today, he might be tempted to put a spin on current events by saying, “Lord, keep my products green.” As we look around the world today there is one subject that is almost universally discussed, dissected, and leads to arguments as heated as religion or politics. That subject is environmentalism. Put in the simplest terms, we simply say, “…going green…” to describe the current hot topic (pun intended).
Everywhere we look now, there is a story, guideline, or product available that we as a human race can utilize to improve our surroundings and reduce our footprint on this wonderful planet we call Earth. While this article could spin out of control quickly based on your beliefs on what is right or wrong with the environment, we simply want to provide our spin on the power requirements for the latest IGP platforms from AMD, NVIDIA, and Intel.

AnandTech is testing three chipsets with integrated graphics, the 780G, GF8200, and G35, to see which deserves to claim the title of greenest motherboard. You might assume that with nVIDIA’s usually power hungry chipsets they would not even be in the running against AMD and Intel, both of whom are pushing power consumption as a major factor in computing. The test results may surprise you.
