Cochin, India - February 21, 2013:
Wipro Infotech, the India and Middle East IT Business unit of Wipro Ltd (NYSE: WIT)today announced the launch of The Power PC under its Super Genius range of desktops, a world class desktop with an integrated power backup solution. This product will be first available for customers in Kerala. A unique product in the desktop category, Super Genius Power has the ability to provide an integrated power backup of upto 120 minutes. Coupled with a 50% reduction in power consumption, the Power PC is an excellent addition to Wipro's range of environment friendly green products.
The power PC comes packed with superior features like a universal voltage range of 100V - 300V which gives it a wider capability of withstanding power fluctuations and the Cold Start option, wherein the user can restart the computer using the integrated power backup even when there is no external power.
Built on a smaller foot-print, the Wipro Super Genius Power PC is engineered to meet the burgeoning computing needs of all set of users, be it individuals, small enterprises or large corporates and has a value proposition for all the segments.
Today the need for providing uninterrupted computing is critical for all customers & applications and this PC has a built-in power management facility thus eliminating the need to invest in UPSs, Stabilizer's, spike busters etc.
In a traditional desktop the monitor is connected to the AC mains. Thus the overall power consumed would be more than 230 watts at full load. In the Wipro Power PC the unique monitor draws power from the PC unit itself, thus limiting the overall power consumption to a maximum of 85 watts at full load.
S Raghavendra Prakash, General Manager and Business Head, Wipro Systems and Technology said, "The power situation in the country today calls for the judicious use of power and the need for backup is crucial to the consumer. Wipro Super Genius Power addresses this need as it provides power back-up and also saves power. Also, this latest offering from us is in alignment with our green initiatives as the desktops consume 50% less power. Given the growing IT penetration in India and increased need for uninterrupted computing this product is expected to see a vibrant market ahead", Mr. Prakash added.
