|Polywell is proud to annouce that it is part of the 80 plus program.
This program focuses on energy efficiency and allows for significant
Due to the energy crisis, energy saving becomes a major topic
of all government and big corporate businesses. Today, most PCs
use standard a power supply which has about 65% to 70% power efficiency,
which means if you are using 100 Watts power from your home or
office, your power supply only produces 65W to 75W of usable energy
to your PC. The remaining 30W to 35W of power is dissapated as
thermal energy (ie heat) and is wasted. Most high-end PCs todays
use 300W or more power, which means at they need to have about
500W power supply in order to be able to generate 300W of power.
If we are using a 80% efficiency power supply, then 400W is good
enough for a 80% efficiency power supply. With the lower heat
dissapation, systems will require less cooling fans meaning quieter
systems. For large scale servers, this will significantly reduce
the amount of heat dissapated from these more efficient systems
leading to savings in air conditioning as well.
There are not very many vendors in the market that understand
this and provide this solution yet. Polywell is one of the premier
vendors providing this solution with our systems and we are joining
this 80Plus Program which is supported by the government and utility
companies in the west coast.
