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.

Understand basic insurance terms and coverage options before looking for
an insurance policy. While each state has different requirements, the
insurance basics are mainly the same. You should check quotes online and
learn the terminology prior to speaking to a carrier. This will help
you better understand your options so you will be sure to pick the best
one for you. Thoroughly check your vehicle's insurance policy for
possible errors. Inaccurate information on your policy can result in
claim denials or delays in payment of your claim.



Thankfully, it seems that, unless you are a frequent road trip traveler,
the pros definitely outweigh the cons when it comes to buying an
electric car. With the added benefits of no tailpipe emissions, almost
zero car maintenance (oil changes and emissions checks are obsolete in
electric cars) and an extremely fast zero-to-60 acceleration time, the
electric car does seem to be worth the money. Unfortunately, the only
major problem is that they can be difficult to find, so if you do happen
upon a dealership that sells electric cars, jump on it right away! More
importantly, be sure to look for the best car insurance when looking to
buy an efficient car like the electric car.



Oil consumption in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries has been abundantly pushed by automobile growth; the 1985-2003 oil glut even fuelled the sales of low economy vehicles in OECD countries. The BRIC countries might also kick in, as China briefly was the first automobile market in December 2009.


Wow I never thought that Intel would be used on Cars.
