Taipei, Taiwan; June 15, 2009- ASUS, the leading manufacturer of innovative motherboards, today achieved another industry first by enabling PC system builders to meet Energy Star 5.0 compliance with its energy-efficient motherboards.
Industry’s First Energy Star 5.0 Compliance through Innovations in Motherboard Efficiency ASUS enables PC system builders to comply with Energy Star 5.0 standards with its leading motherboard designs. ASUS motherboards optimize savings from energy-efficient operations and contribute to global energy conservation. Initiated in 1992 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy, Energy Star labeling identifies energy-efficient products and promotes the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Energy Star 5.0 takes effect on July 1, 2009.
ASUS Motherboards’ Design Endeavor in Support of Sustainable Environmental Practices ASUS motherboard designs are a result of the company’s active support of green technology and its belief in maintaining an eco-friendly environment for future generations. ASUS motherboards exceed Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) standards for the reduction of harmful materials in its products and in the environment. Additionally, ASUS motherboards’ cutting-edge innovations, such as its Energy Processing Unit (EPU), simultaneously control power profiles to motherboard components for minimized power consumption.
