A really interesting bit of tech should it ever get momentum and a more solid funding base. I love my smartphone and the idea of a thin netbook or smartphone running off a small solar array on my desk/cafe table is rather attractive.
Sounds like Manga to me, but I like it
I've got a computer that runs off solar: A programmable calculator. Unfortunately, if its too different and doesn't get good sales it might never get software written for it which will rather limit its market to that which the consortium can write software for.
It is not really going to matter unless they have an x86 license...
What if it was ARM based? It wouldn't matter to Intel or AMD.. but it'd matter to plenty of other companies.
It would be nice to see and well overall I wish more companies would start focusing on lowering power consumption but maintaing performance eg the graphics card market >< I dnt want to run 1200+ watt power supplies for my gaming rigs lol.
So now every case will have a window in it?
well I think its more a long the lines that its so low powered it could run off a single solar cell not that it will be built on the cpu itself, I could be wrong but thats what Im getting from it
well we will all have to wait and see what come out the other side and if its worth getting if its for the desktop pc's!!!! over-clockable???? would it burn it out if you was to up the voltage on it???? considering that it might even not be for desktops what other use would there be other than netbooks???? low power, great performance, there is somin not realy right on that! would realy like more info on this one! bit-tech we need another review in time to come!!!
Wouldn't help, some of us(not me specifically) are basement junkies.
sun and computers don't mix... imagine sitting in the sun with your computer playing some L4D with that bright sun reflected in your screen, yum yum...
