Chip and PC platform maker VIA Technologies will unveil a range of highly power efficient enterprise products at the Green California Summit and Exposition in Sacramento.
The environmentally friendly PCs, thin clients, storage and ultra mobile products are designed to enable organisations to minimise their carbon footprint and save money on electricity.
Customers can expect 50 per cent more energy-efficient desktop computing platforms, 50 per cent increased battery life in ultra mobile devices, and dramatic 90 per cent energy savings by substituting desktop products with thin clients, according to VIA.
"Addressing environmental issues has become a necessity which requires the development of computing technologies that consume far less power as well as working with key partners to enable new product opportunities," said Epan Wu, deputy director of CPU product marketing at VIA.
"VIA's focus on power efficiency across the whole platform over the past few years is now paying off, with our technologies enabling the design of truly responsible computing products for enterprise and individuals alike."
Products using VIA's new platforms include compact thin clients from HP, Wyse and DevonIT, and slim-line ultra mobile devices from vendors such as Samsung, and TabletKiosk.
"Environmental sustainability is a key element of global citizenship at HP, and we are dedicated to reducing our environmental impact, as well as that of our customers, partners and suppliers, by providing a variety of energy-efficient desk-based solutions for business customers," said Jeff Groudan, worldwide vice president of marketing for HP Business PCs.
"As part of our participation in the Green California event, HP will be showing our thin client systems featuring VIA power-efficient silicon platforms, which are the most energy efficient desktop computing solutions on the market from HP today."
Also on show will be the VIA Carbon Free PC reference design, which the firm describes as an advanced approach to clean computing.
