Asus P5E3 Premium WiFi-AP @n green motherboard features Energy Processing Unit

Many companies went green last year, and Asus is being more innovative on their Green initiative. Asus’s new P5E3 Premium motherboard uses a new solution to make it more energy efficient - this solution is called ASUS EPU (Energy Processing Unit).

By throttling processor power consumption, the EPU saves over 80 percent of power usage. The P5E3 Premium also features Asus Express Gate mini OS, which allows users to access the Internet almost instantly without having to boot into the full operating system installed on the computer.

The board is based on Intel X48 chipset and comes with 802.11n draft wireless. It supports DDR3 2000Mhz and dual PCI Express 2.0 x16 lanes. Asus priced the P5E3 Premium at $369 and should be available at the end of February this year.
