Exclamation Intel making new "Warp Core" CPU for Star Trek?

I've heard this rumor quite a bit and finally found the picture after being sent a link. I'll upload it. Tell me what you think? Fake? or Real?

PLEASE BE REAL!

yeah the site would be good support of a core, but I doubt it's real... But that would be SWEET!

The image is REALLY amature, but could refer to Intel sticking an unreasonable amount of processing cores into their new CPUs.

btw, the above link didn't work for me, but this one should work for you -
https://boldlygo.intel.com/default.aspx

For those that still can't load the site, don't worry, there isn't much there. It reads as a recruitment page for worker-bees to help assemble "Starfleet's newest Constitution-class starship, The USS Enterprise."

Curiously, it informs that our employment will start "This November." The movie was, at one point, scheduled to come out in December of 2008 before the Paramount-suits wisened up, giving Abrams the time he needs to make a good film.

The only other thing there is a 1,943 x 2,880 poster of the Kirk/Spock/Uhura/Bad Guy image.

Not sure I want a computer that is powered by antimatter. Seems a little dangerous. Maybe it comes complete with a Scottish engineer.

She canna take much more of this. I dinna think the RAM will hold it. If I push it any harder, the whole thing'll blow!

yeah, its a rather weak site, and generic too - it could be for practically any movie once you remove the text and pics...

you know, I just watched the teaser for "Blood and Fire" a fan show, and it is going to be really hard to accept another crew for the classics.

I Agree. I Wish That Dude That Plays Kirk Would Shut His Mouth About Obtaining The Role Of Captain Kirk.
