Read the full story at The Register:

"VIA has begun shipping what it claims is the first ever carbon-neutral computer processor. It's balancing the reduced carbon emissions resulting from the use of its C7-D chip with carbon removal efforts such as reforestation and energy conservation programmes, the company said today.

Running flat out at 1.8GHz, the C7-D consumes around 20W of power, VIA said, claiming the chip sets the "benchmark for performance-per-watt operation". That means lower energy consumption, resulting in reduced energy generation needs and this contribution - albeit a small one - to lower emissions of greenhouse gasses, carbon dioxide in particular."
