"We don't see a lot of benchmarks for the desktop," Realmuto adds. "Traditional desktop workloads are single-threaded, while we focus on the server space. The challenge is creating benchmarks that take advantage of multiple cores, and we have succeeded."
The report confirms "that Green Mark commercial buildings are indeed more energy efficient,” says Khaw Boon Wan, minister for national development. “This is reassuring, especially for building owners who see bottom-line benefits from participating in this program.”"
...power is now an affordable option for families, schools, businesses and utilities alike," said Adam Browning, executive director of Vote Solar. "The result is that solar and its many grid, economic and environmental benefits are shining in communities across the country."
