CHIPMAKER Intel has named its solar powered processor 'Claremont', and showed it off at IDF running Linux and Quake.
We saw the experimental system on the first day of the Intel Developer Forum where a postage stamp sized solar panel was powering a chip capable of running Windows. The chip is actually an old Pentium processor and is operating with a five times improvement in energy efficiency.
The CPU can run fast when needed and as you can see in the video was running a demo of Quake. However, it is capable of consuming less than 10mW of power.
Intel CTO Justin Rattner said, "We've seen really, I think, an outstanding example of the work towards increasing the energy efficiency on the processing side." µ
