ASUS Super Hybrid Engine - Save energy and reduce your carbon footprint

N82 Super Hybrid Engine power consumption

N82 with Super Hybrid Engine:
The N82 consumes less energy than stipulated in Energy Star 5.0 15.61 KWh, bettering requirements by 27.8%.
It is also consumes less than ErP 24.17KWh, exceeding requirements of the EU ErP directive (Energy Star 4.0) by 37.4%.
Test system: N82Jv, Intel Core i7 CPU M620 (2.67GHz), 1GB nVIDIA GeForce GT 335M, 4GB RAM, Windows 7, DELTA ADP-90CD CB A.
Test conditions: 230V/50Hz, standby (off mode): 0.487 watt, sleep w/WOL: 1.594 watt, Idle state: 13.862 watt, ETEC = (8760/1000) X (power off x 0.6 + power sleep x 0.1 + power idle x 0.3) = 40.39 KWh
Energy Star 5.0 requirements category B = 53kWh, discrete GPU > 64bit +3kWh. Total Energy Star 5.0 energy limit is 56KWh
56 – 40.39 = 15.61 kWh, 15.61/56 = 27.8%
N82 notebook energy consumption at 15.61 kWh, lower than required by Energy Star 5.0 (= reducing 9.93 kg CO2 emissions, or 0.83 tree).


15.61 kWh x 0.636 kg CO₂-e/ KWH (electricity-related emissions factor based on Taiwan Power Company announcement from 2008) =9.93 kg CO2-e
9.93kg CO2-e / 12 kg CO2-e absorption per tree per year (based on Plant a Billion Trees campaign, UNEP 2006) = 0.83
ErP working document tier 1 requirements: 8760/1000 X (1 X 0.6+1.7 X 0.1+22 X 0.3) = 64.56KWh
64.56-40.39 = 24.17 kWh, 24.17/64.56 = 37.4 %
N82 notebook energy consumption 24.17 kWh, lower than EU ErP directives (= reducing 15.37 kg CO2 emissions, or 1.05 trees).


24.17 kWh x 0.636 kg CO₂-e / kWh (electricity-related emissions factor based on Taiwan Power Company announcement from 2008) = 15.37kg CO2-e
15.37kg CO2-e / 12 kg CO2-e absorption per tree per year (based on Plant a Billion Trees campaign, UNEP 2006) = 1.28 trees
Energy Star 5.0 energy limit is 56KWh
56 – 40.39 = 15.61 kWh, 15.61/56 = 27.8%
N82 notebook energy consumption at 15.61 kWh, lower than required by Energy Star 5.0 (= reducing 9.93 kg CO2 emissions).
