Submission + - Intel experimental processor runs on solar power (hothardware.com)

An anonymous reader writes: With all the talk about being green and energy efficient, I always thought the sun's power was wasted since very few humans will try to harvest them, and in small quantities may not be very usable. For the IDF keynote, Intel showed an experimental processor, running Windows (either XP or 2000, not sure) that is powered by solar power (incandescent light shining on solar panel). The whole computer itself still runs on regular power, only the processor itself is solar powered — where it operates near the voltage threshold for transistor switching.
