San Jose, Costa Rica - Intel announced that it will join forces
with a Costa Rican coffee exporting company, Café Britt,
to produce a coffee-nanoprocessor hybrid, to increase productivity
engineers and other coffee addicts.
"We got the idea after we set up a processor manufacturing
plant in Costa Rica," explained Intel representative, Gerald
had to choose a country in which to build the plant, and when the
Costa Rican government offered management a year's supply of coffee
we couldn't refuse. We loved the coffee so much, we wanted to incorporate
it into our technology. However, our Coffee-Powered processors
didn't work too well, so we went the other way around and incorporated
technology into their coffee."
The idea behind Pentium Coffee is simple. Nanoprocessors are mixed
in with the coffee, and swallowed by the consumer. These microprocessors
enter the bloodstream, travel around the body, and linked to
the nervous system. These nanoprocessors aid the brain by performing
complex mathematical operations. The processor’s perfomance
is measured in CAFS (Complex Arithmetic Functions).
Production is expected to begin in late June, when the developers'
coffee-induced hyperactivity is expected to calm down. The coffee
will be sold in anti-static plastic bags, and will come in three
different flavors: Regular (100 Teracafs), MMX (200 Teracafs),
and Celeron (50 Teracafs).
ATI has also announced that it will pair up with Folgers to produce
Radeon-coffee hybrids to help with mental image processing.
