Climate change

Postby Hennen Dirk on Wed Nov 07, 2007 9:29 am

Now, everybody is talking about climate change and with the rising energy
prices, I like to build a less power consuming desktop computer.
In order to build a desktop computer consuming less than 100 watts of energy, I have to make some calculations. I want to use the new AMD BE2350 dual core desktop prosessor ( consuming only 45 watts max ! )
But ! This new AMD prosessor works the best together with a ATI/AMD690G
chipset mainboard ! I have 2 questions.
1. Works linux well together with dual core prosessors ?
2. Will the new linux kernel 2.6.22 ( used in ubuntu 7.10 gutsy gibon and linux mint 4.0 ??) support the ATI/AMD690G chipset full, also the inbuild graphical chip ?
Greetings to all mint lovers, pleased to be with you ! :lol:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

No problems with dual core
The 690 "should" work but better with earlier kernels and probably w/o 3D
Not sure about this, pretty little useful info out there
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Thank you, Husse. No 3D with the 690.
I think I will use a nvidia chipset mainboard.
I know it will have full linux support, but, it will consuming 10 watts more !!
The 690 is the most energy saving.
Greetings to all. :D
