Japanese tech giants to take on Intel

Posted on Sunday, September 06 2009 @ 19:28:48 CEST by

Engadget reports seven Japanese tech firms have teamed up to develop a new energy-efficient processor. The alliance consists of NEC, Renesas, Hitachi, Toshiba, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Canon.
The goal is to create a commercial processor that runs on solar cells, moderates power use according to the amount of data being processed (a current prototype runs on 30% the power of a standard CPU), remains on even when mains power is cut, and, of course, upsets the apple cart over at Intel. Once a standard is adopted and the chip is used in a wide range of electronics, firms will be able to realize massive savings on software development. The new format is expected to to be in place by the end of 2012.
