  • 20 July, 2009 13:40

<p>Taipei, Taiwan, 17 July 2009 - VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of power efficient x86 processor platforms, today announced the adoption of its VIA Eden processor in the latest FUTRO thin client series from Fujitsu. The 500MHz VIA Eden ULV processor, with its remarkably low TDP of only one watt, powers the Fujitsu FUTRO S100, an entirely fanless and silent thin client and virtual workplace solution.</p>
<p>With a dramatically lower TCO, a reduced environmental footprint and a radically improved security infrastructure, it’s no surprise to see thin client adoption continue to expand, particularly in enterprise and commercial corporate segments. Fujitsu’s new range of FUTRO thin client products bring these benefits into sharper focus, with the FUTRO S100 thin client consuming less than eleven watts for the complete system under full load.</p>
<p>“Our VIA Eden ULV processors allow the creation of a new class of fanless and silent devices that are today seeing significant growth in the enterprise," said Richard Brown, Vice President of Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. “The FUTRO thin client series from Fujitsu represents the leading edge of energy-efficient client computing, something we are proud to be a part of.”</p>
<p>“The Fujitsu FUTRO S100 offers business users extremely low energy consumption per seat, helping to minimize the environmental impact and expense of doing business in today’s competitive economic landscape,” said Rajat Kakar, Vice President Clients Group of Fujitsu Technology Solutions.</p>
<p>The “One Watt” 500MHz VIA Eden ULV Processor
The 500MHz VIA Eden ULV processor has been designed from the ground up to meet the low power requirements of a wide range of industrial, commercial and ultra mobile applications including the latest client and virtual workplace solutions.</p>
<p>Based on the VIA CoolStream Architecture, the 500MHz VIA Eden ULV processor is capable of speeds of up to 500MHz while maintaining a remarkably low power consumption of only 1 watt peak power and as low as 100mW (0.1 watt) idle power. Integrated into the processor is the VIA StepAhead Technology Suite, which boasts an extensive array of performance-enhancing features ensuring the processor's low power consumption doesn't come at the expense of performance.
