Go Green with Kingston - Save the PCB, Save the World

  • 25 August, 2008 16:10

<strong>Sydney , Australia</strong> –<strong> August 25,
2008</strong> –“Less is better” has
become a common sense of the global citizens. Some of them are practicing LOHAS
life style and some are going green by reducing the consumption of carbon dioxide.
The green consciousness has been raised these days, due to the changes in the
environment. Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader
in memory products, today announced the launch of the low profile modules for
the commitment to the society.<br/>
“The new low profile modules are more efficient than their predecessors.
Smaller modules use fewer materials, which is better for the environment.” said
Vaughan Nankivell, Regional Manager - Australia and New Zealand for Kingston
Technology. “The disposal of PCB can cause environmental hazard. Kingston
is proud to introduce the new modules to the market and hopes this small step
could help to make our world better,” added Nankivell. <br/>
Advances in technology
have resulted in smaller chips and smaller computer systems. Kingston was motivated
to stay ahead of technology by developing smaller modules. The new low profile
modules function exactly the same way, which is absolutely great news for the
end users who can benefit from smaller systems and lower heat diffusivity.
These modules follow JEDEC standard with less consumption of PCB board, about
40% less in height compared to the modules we see today.<br/>
Kingston begins phasing
in new Very Low Profile (VLP) DIMMs for unbuffered DDR2 Desktop memory SKUs
for ValueRAM and eventually the System Specific memory. Some of the best selling
modules, such as ValueRAM DDR2-800 and DDR2-667, have adapted to the new VLP
standard. The VLP stands 0.72" (18.3mm) high compared
to the standard PCB height of 1.18" (30mm). The two designs are functionally
equivalent and have the same electrical characteristic and interface. Kingston
is committed to reducing industrial waste and providing greeners more eco-friendly
products for the environment. <br/>

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
