ASUS launches Eee Box, most cost effective desktop PC
ASUS in association with Intel today announced the launch of world’s greenest, quietest and the most cost effective desktop PC in India. The Eee Box which measures only 1L in size consumes 90% less power than normal desktop PCs and is one of the quietest desktop PC with only 26 decibels sound emission. This revolutionary product is targeted at the Small and Medium Enterprise (SMEs) and the Home Users segments in India.
Speaking on the occasion Mr. Benson Lin, Corporate Vice President, ASUS, said, “With the ever increasing concern over global warming and the looming threat to the environment, ASUS has taken multiple initiatives in manufacturing green, eco-friendly products. These initiatives are part of our social and environmental responsibilities as well as part of ASUS’ strategic goal to tap the potential that ‘Green Industry’ has in future. We have made substantial investment in the R&D for green technology and will roll out products manufactured from environment-friendly materials, consuming much less power and conforming to stringent RoHS and WEEE standards.”
Mr. Stanley Wu, Product Manager – Notebooks and Eee PC, ASUS (India), said, “Eee Box is yet another revolutionary product from ASUS in the ‘Eee’ product range. The product will help boost the sales in the overall desktop market in India because of the advantages it provides in terms of size and power saving.”
Added Mr. Gopal Swaminathan, General Manager, OEM Business, Intel South Asia, “The Eee Box uses the Intel Atom N270 (1.6 GHz) processor, based on an entirely new architecture designed from the ground up specifically for low power and performance in an ultra-small package. The Intel Atom processor packs more than 47million transistors into a single piece of silicon measuring less than 25mm², and has a thermal design power specification in the 0.6-2.5 watt range. This is our smallest processor built with the world’s smallest transistors and a fundamental shift in design, small yet powerful enough to enable a big internet experience on devices such as the Eee Box.”
