Samsung intros green PCs
Samsung Korea has unveiled it will soon begin shipping two ultra-low power desktop PCs, the MV100 Tower and the MZ100 Slim Tower. Both will use Intel's G43 chipset with support for Intel's Core 2 Duo, Quad and Celeron processors, though exactly which CPUs Samsung will ship the PCs with is unknown. The desktops' main selling point, however, should prove to be their low power consumption ratings of just 1W while in stand-by mode and 60W while operating in power saving mode.
Other specs include a GeForce 9600 GT video processor with 512MB of VRAM, or the 9500 GS chipset with an identical amount of dedicated memory. The G43 mainboard also supports HD audio and video, along with PCIe 2.0 ports, DDR3 RAM and eSATA.
There is no word on pricing information or release dates in the company's home market of Korea. [via Akihabara]
