Intel promotes new chips with custom bike from Orange County Choppers

Intel is celebrating 30 years of delivering embedded computing products with an Intel-themed embedded technology-based motorcycle by Orange County Choppers.

The Intel motorcycle is more than just pretty metal and paint. According to the Intel site...

"The breakthrough performance and power efficiency that characterize the industry's first quad-core processors for embedded are as unmistakable as the raw power of the four cylinders of the Intel Chopper's quad engine," said Doug Davis, vice president and general manager of Intel's Embedded and Communications Group. "This 250-horsepower chopper – designed using quad-core Intel computers – is more than just a mechanical powerhouse; it's also a marvel of embedded technology with an ultra-mobile PC powering fingerprint recognition for security and a digital dashboard with ignition control, digital gauges, cameras that replace rear-view mirrors, integrated audio and video systems, GPS navigation and wireless connectivity."
