This does sound on the edge of too-good-to-be-true (and you know what your mother said about things that sounded too good to be true) so I am going to follow up in 6 months -- if the numbers are true this will have made a big splash by then -- it not, their web page will remain static. I will also try to determine whether they are using this annoucement to bring in investors.

A quote from the test company's research director that conducted the test isn't enough for you? Why would you need to see such test documentation? Reading both the companies web site, this article, and the other posted on their news page (which it looks like you failed to do) would indicate that they have all ready "put up". Who are you to say what a company need to put on their web site? I didn't know there was an Internet Police, perhaps you have a badge number? So, Mr. Broccoli, where is your fuel saving device, patents and independent test result? I see you failed to post them.

If this company claims to have independent test performed that confirm their claims of 30% fuel savings with no loss of horsepower, they need to publish those tests on their website (those tests docments are conspicuously absent on the company's website.) In other words, it's time to put up or shut up.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
