Becoming green is the new trend for motherboard manufacturers. Along with the likes of GIGABYTE, ASUS and MSI, Foxconn are also focusing on making their boards much more energy efficient using their proprietory 3G technologies which can apparently reduce power consumption by around 68% during general Windows tasks. Thus, the mass manufacturer has put together a new lineup simply dubbed the "GREEN" series.
The first GREEN series motherboard from Foxconn was launched at the end of May, the Intel G31 chipset based G31MG-S. Today brings the arrival of the second GREEN board, based on Intel's new G45 chipset.
The new G45MG is an mATX motherboard with Intels integrated X4500HD graphics core, support for DDR3 and Core 2 Quad/Duo processors. Foxconn's arsenal of power saving technologies are of course incorporated into the boards design and it could be a very fitting choice for a HTPC build.

Yantai, China, Oct 08 2008 - FOXCONN today launched the second motherboard in its expanding GREEN Series, with the G45MG based on the Intel® G45 chipset.
First demonstrated at CeBIT 2008, the new GREEN Series range affords system builders, resellers and end users the capability to configure highly energy efficient computing solutions for business and home use. Innovative power management technologies combine to reward users with a significantly lower TCO (total cost of ownership) without adversely affecting system performance.
