Samsung and Microsoft announced plans to collaborate on efficient energy usage in computers.
Microsoft and Samsung aim to encourage PC users to purchase more environmentally friendly PC systems.
Samsung expects substantial energy savings when Microsoft's Windows 7 operating system and Samsung's 40nm class DDR3 DRAM are used together.
At the beginning of September, Samsung initiated its own global marketing campaign centered around 'Less Energy, More Speed', initially focused on its energy-efficient, 40nm-class, 2Gb DDR3 DRAM.
The Samsung "Green DDR3" 40nm class DDR3 is one of the most environmentally friendly mass-produced memory for PCs and servers worldwide according to Samsung.
Providing up to 60% power savings over 60nm-class DDR2 in PCs, Samsung’s Green DDR3 is available in densities from 1GB to 4GB and is designed to work efficiently with all leading operating systems, particularly Windows 7.

Samsung also announced that it will be migrating all of its corporate PCs worldwide to the new operating system beginning in 2010. This is good news for Microsoft as apparently consumers for instance are still prefering XP netbooks and not adopting Windows 7 as much as one would think.
