Intel is powering the fastest car in the world

Wing Commander Andy Green unveils the final shape of the car that will aim to break the 1000mph barrier on land. The car was also designed using supercomputers based on Intel Xeon processors.

 

Bloodhound, the 1000mph supersonic car, is to use Intel technology in its bid to improve the world land speed record. The chip maker’s Atom processors – similar to versions used in laptop computers – will be part of the engine and in-car control systems and will manage the calculations behind the car’s “hybrid” propulsion systems. The car will be powered by the largest hybrid rocket ever designed in Europe - including a jet engine from Typhoon fighter aircraft.
