Intel and Google Kick Off Initiative to Save Climate
With regards to global climate change, your computer and anyone’s computer — anywhere in the world — are more likely to be part of the problem than part of the solution. At a press event held at Google’s Mountain View headquarters June 12th, Google co-founder Larry Page, along with executives from Intel, including Pat Gelsinger, other tech companies, and even the World Wildlife Fund, announced an initiative aiming to change that by setting aggressive new industry standards for energy-efficient computing. The Climate Savers Computing Initiative aims to increase overall computer power efficiency by 50 percent in the next three years, and to make power supplies 90 percent efficient in that timeframe.
