Foxconn has today taken the covers off its newest motherboard and it comes under their new Green Series of products.

It will be a rather affordable motherboard based on Intel's G31 Express chipset with onboard GMA 3100 graphics and support for the latest Core2 Quad and Core2 Duo processors up to 95W power rating and FSB rating of 1333MHz.

The new motherboard includes FOXCONN's proprietary 3G technologies which are designed to reduce power consumption, typically by around 68%*.

3G technologies comprise of GPS (Green Power Saving), GoD (Green on Demand) and GSM (Green System Mode).

GPS reduces power consumption in standby or 'power off' mode by around 95% by combining with a special GREEN Series power supply which reduces the power draw from the computer.

GoD technology intelligently manages the multi-phase power distribution on the motherboard, reducing the number of power phases in operation during low-loading periods, and increasing the number of phases when the computer is under heavy loading. This technique improves energy efficiency when the computer is operational, especially during light usage, where energy savings from single-phase power distribution are significant.

Finally GSM (Green System Mode) combines a number of BIOS and system settings to further enhance energy efficiency in all usage states.
