Asus – Worlds first motherboard maker to deliver New IEEE Standard on Motherboards

Asus today became the first motherboard maker to announce the introduction of the IEEE 802.3az Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) standard on a number of new motherboards. This helps increase energy savings up to 81.3% by reducing power delivery during periods of low network activity. Operating a Gigabit Ethernet LAN now requires only 89.1mW of power instead of 476.8mW during periods of lower Ethernet utilization. Asus recently incorporated IEEE 802.3az EEE into the new ASUS M4A89 Series motherboards.
