Gigabyte United, a leading producer of motherboards and various computer components, on Wednesday unveiled a range of its mainboards that feature Gigabyte Dynamic Energy Saver technology. The capability dynamically alters microprocessor’s clock-speed to save power when it is not needed, thus providing better energy efficiency and component life.

Gigabyte Technology’s fully owned subsidiary does not give a lot of details regarding its Dynamic Energy Saving, but what it is known is that it is based on Intersil power controller along with specially designed software. The software monitors the load of central processing unit (CPU) and shifts power phases according to requirements. Gigabyte’s Dynamic Energy Saver technology also delivers additional power savings with its dynamic CPU voltage control and dynamic frequency control (CPU throttling).

“With more than one year of intensive design and testing, Gigabyte’s Dynamic Energy Saver represents a truly amazing revolution in motherboard development. With one little click, users are able to take advantage of up to 70% CPU power savings without sacrificing computing performance. Imagine the potential for power savings on a global scale if every motherboard in the world was able to provide similar power savings,” said Johnson Lin, chief executive of Gigabyte United.

On Wednesday Gigabyte said that Dynamic Energy Saving technology is available on certain revisions of its mainboards based on Intel P35, Intel X38 and Intel X48 core-logic sets, but later on the feature may be expected on motherboards powered by different chipsets as well.

Energy efficient computing is a popular trend among enterprises as well as some consumers. Even though modern CPUs consume about 65W of power, which is hardly a lot, low power consumption also means less noise from cooling systems, something, which should be appreciated not only by energy-efficiency “enthusiasts”, but also by typical users.
