Intel collaborates with manufacturers to reduce PC industry carbon emissions

Intel said in the latest blog post that Intel recently announced its vision to drive net-zero greenhouse gas emissions, setting new goals to promote the technology industry to reduce its carbon footprint. To support this vision, the Desktop, Workstation, and Gaming (DWG) segment will continue to improve the performance and efficiency of products and platforms, helping partners and customers reduce the overall system carbon footprint.

Intel said that in terms of product design, Intel works with OEM and ODM partners to improve product efficiency, promote product innovation, and mainly focus on motherboard decarbonization and optimization.

To drive general improvements in desktop energy efficiency, Intel is refining the PC industry's standards for power supply and efficient desktop system design. In 2021, Intel first released the ATX12VO power supply specification, which aims to provide higher platform power efficiency in a smaller form factor. Importantly, ATX12VO compatible power supplies can exclusively use a single 12V rail to improve efficiency in low power scenarios. These new power supply specifications developed by Intel have already been implemented in the market. MSI recently announced the first ATX12VO-based desktop system.

Intel said that it is continuing to improve the ATX12VO and will release updated power specifications in the near future, which can provide the PC industry with an up-to-date blueprint for power supply unit (PSU) and motherboard design, thereby reducing no-load power consumption and helping customers reduce PC power consumption. power demand.

Intel desktops based on "Project Athena" require "Modern Standby" technology and a single-rail PSU, which will create a smaller, more efficient form factor to help OEMs meet " Energy Star and EPEAT Environmental and Social Responsibility Standards.
