Asus P5E64 WS Evolution motherboard has 95% efficiency

Posted on Wednesday, Mar 12 2008 @ 00:20 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Asus published information on its website about a new motherboard for workstations: the P5E64 WS Evolution. This board is based on the Intel X48 chipset and offers four PCI Express x16 graphics slots, two PCI Express 2.0 slots are x16 and the other two x4.

Asus touts the energy efficiency of this motherboard, claiming it scores a 95% power efficiency in light load mode and 90%+ in heavy load mode.
With the whole new power design - HE 95, this motherboard is anle to achieve 95%+ power efficiency in light loading mode and 90%+ in full/heavy loading mode. No software or driver required, the hardware-based HE 95 automatically saves power for users.

ASUS EPU Enables the Most Energy Efficient Motherboard in the World
The ASUS EPU utilizes innovative technology to digitally monitor and finetune the CPU power supply with improved VR responses in heavy or light loadings. Working together with AI Gear 3, it automatically provides power for higher performance or improves efficiency by 50% when the PC is running low intensity applications - helping you attain the best possible power efficiency and energy savings of up to 80.23% to help save the environment.

Genuine 8-Phase Power Design Excels at Power Efficiency
The ASUS 8-Phase Power Design provides highly efficient operation to generate less heat (at least 15°C (27°F)) than other conventional power solutions. It reduces input ripple current and output ripple voltage, which keeps CPU and power module from suffering the risk of high power stress. It has the advantages of quick transient response and stability, especially beneficial when CPU requires more current immediately under heavy loading or overclocking mode.

- Intel® X48 chipset
- Extreme energy saving with new HE 95 power efficiency feature
- ASUS EPU (Energy Processing Unit)
- ASUS 3rd Generation 8-phase Power Design
- Support Intel next generation 45nm multi core CPU
- 4 x PCIe x 16 Graphic (dual PCIe 2.0 x 16)

I think it's not available yet, some webstores list the motherboard on their site but they all say it's not in stock.
