New AMD-based systems from Fujitsu Siemens Computers
reduce electricity consumption by up to 23 percent.
With energy prices continuing to soar, IT decision-makers
are becoming increasingly attracted to power-saving
PCs. Fujitsu Siemens Computers - the leading European
IT manufacturer - is now launching two unique energy-conscious
ESPRIMO professional PCs.
Based on the new Energy Efficient AMD Desktop Processors
for socket AM2, these systems enable up to 23 percent reduction
in electricity use. This marks another important step forward
for the company’s green PC strategy, which is based on the
use of environmentally conscious materials, resource-saving
production techniques and low power consumption.
The ESPRIMO E5615 small form factor PC and ESPRIMO P5615
microtower will be available as of mid of June 2006 for prices
starting at €599 (e.g. in Germany, incl. VAT).
Comparison tests with predecessor models with comparable
configuration have demonstrated that 100 users with ESPRIMO
E5615 with AMD processors can save up to an annual power savings
of €10,000. Customers who also use Fujitsu Siemens Computers
monitors with patented Switched Monitor Outlet - which controls
the electricity supply via the PC - achieve a further savings
of around €1,100 per year.
“Fujitsu Siemens Computers stands for exceptionally resource-friendly
production methods and environmentally-sustainable products”
- commented Peter Esser, Executive Vice President Volume Products
& Supply Operations at Fujitsu Siemens Computers. “In March
2001, we presented a Green PC with the first lead-free mainboard
and our professional PCs and notebooks have complied with
the RoHS guidelines restricting the use of hazardous substances
" The remarkably energy-conscious ESPRIMO models mark
the continuation of our strategy to go above and beyond the
environmental standards typical to the market or required
With the ESPRIMO P5615, Fujitsu Siemens Computers has also
introduced a new housing, which is based on the latest BTX
mainboard standard and incorporates a more efficient cooling
system and improved serviceability features. As a result,
components can be exchanged faster and the drives no longer
require an additional fan. The bottom line is that they consume
even less energy.
