It seems that going Green is the latest fad amongst motherboard manufacturers. With ASUS launching their motherboards with their EPU and [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]GIGABYTE[/COLOR][/COLOR] revamping their entire line of P35 motherboards with their Dynamic Energy Saver (DES) technology. Whilst ASUS' method is more traditional, adjusting the processor clockspeed and voltage to save energy, GIGABYTE has decided to take things one step further. In addition to the usual voltage and clockspeed adjustments, DES helps to save power further by shutting down power regulation phases when they are not required. However, both technologies are not that different as they both employ the PWM controller chip to go green. With ASUS, it's a customized controller from Analog Devices and with GIGABYTE, their engineers teamed up with Intersil to provide a software/ hardware solution.
