On-chip water cooling

Published on:

The Register reports that Apple, Intel and AMD are testing an on-chip water cooling technology capable of dissipating 1000W/cm2, four times more than the best passive system. For Apple, such a cooling technology -- solid-state, i.e. silent and without moving parts -- would allow fan-less G5-powered PowerBooks. Add fuel cells to that, and the future notebooks will continue to offer both a comfortable autonomy and impressive performances.
