PSUs to get 90% efficiency in 3-5 years

These days most power supply makers are trying to get all their power supplies 80Plus certified and according to Yancey Hai, CEO of Delta Electronics, we can expect the industry will adopt the 90Plus standard within the next 3-5 years.

The higher the efficiency of your power supply the less power you waste, resulting in less heat, less fan noise and a lower electricity bill.
Although the 80Plus now serves as a common standard for the power supply industry, there is room for further improvement, driving the initiation of the 90Plus standard, remarked Hai during a presentation delivered at Digitimes' 10th year anniversary industry event.

A total of 13 power supplies manufactured by Delta have received 80Plus certification, and the company will continue to work on products that will comply with the 90Plus standard, Hai stated.

In addition, Delta also supports the CSCI (Climate Savers Computing Initiative) program initiated by the international leading IT companies, including Intel and Google, Hai added, noting that the CSCI aims to reduce the power consumption of desktops, notebooks and workstations 50% by 2010.
