TweakTown writes Foxconn has released a GREEN motherboard with the Intel G45 chipset. This mATX motherboard promises to use up to 68 percent less power than typical motherboards.
Becoming green is the new trend for motherboard manufacturers. Along with the likes of GIGABYTE, ASUS and MSI, Foxconn are also focusing on making their boards much more energy efficient using their proprietory 3G technologies which can apparently reduce power consumption by around 68% during general Windows tasks. Thus, the mass manufacturer has put together a new lineup simply dubbed the "GREEN" series.
The new G45MG is an mATX motherboard with Intels integrated X4500HD graphics core, support for DDR3 and Core 2 Quad/Duo processors. Foxconn's arsenal of power saving technologies are of course incorporated into the boards design and it could be a very fitting choice for a HTPC build.
