Two UK PC manufacturers have announced "carbon conscious" computers using VIA Technologies' recently launched low-power C7-D chip.
The C7-D has a maximum power consumption of 20W and claims to set new standards for performance-per-watt operation. Tranquil describes its PCs as " carbon neutral".
At the launch of the chip last month, Via promised to compensate for the carbon dioxide that is produced to power the chip by funding energy conservation, reforestation and alternative energy projects.
The VIA C7-D processor is based on the low profile NanoBGA2 package that measures just 21mm x 21mm and is scalable from 1.5GHz to 1.8GHz.
