BMW gets Intel sponsorship (ironically)The BMW F1 team today anounced that they have signed chip giant Intel as their title sponsor. There had been rumours that Intel was in discussions with several teams about a big-money sponsorship deal for some time. Bitter rival AMD have sponsored Ferrari for a few years now and it seemed about time such a large company as Intel would get involved. What makes this news ironic? Well... BMW is of course the new name for the Sauber Formula 1 team and with some fanfare they anounced in December 2004 that it had invested in a super-computer to run CFD (Computation Fluid Dynamics) simulations. The computer, named Albert (for Albert Einstein) is powered by, you guess it, AMD chips. 530 Opterons to be precise. There is no news as yet on whether this machine will be replaced by Intel hardware at the earliest opportunity.
