The MSI Wind Box scored between twenty and fifty percent of the performance of the desktop, but it did so using 30% of the power. This accomplishes two things. First, average energy consumption for all tasks is reduced by two-thirds. Second, by using less power to accomplish the same tasks the nettop platform operates at higher efficiency. This drives down manufacturing costs which results in a leaner chain of manufacturing and consumption. These kinds of solutions are needed to maintain the same expectations in quality of life while reducing the impact felt by future generations.
