nk497 writes "Intel unveiled a host of news at IDF today — a tie-up with Android, 22nm details — but the demo that turned the most heads was a CPU powered entirely by solar energy, a pair of desktop lamps in this case. CEO Paul Otellini said the demo was a lab experiment and wasn't likely to make its way into a product any time soon, but highlighted the progress made with alternative energy and lower power consumption in chips. "A Pentium-class processor running on solar, that was unheard of even six months ago,” he told IDF delegates." Link to Original Source
