Microchannel Cooled CPUs?
EE Times reports that a new startup company, Cooligy, has been working on new active cooling systems for upcoming CPUs.
The system works by using active water cooling over hundreds of microchannels through which water is cycled. The cooling requirements of upcoming 90 and 65nm chips are said to be more challenging for traditional "passive" cooling systems.
Of note, Cooligy claims to have already developed prototype systems with Intel, AMD and even Apple. They expect first samples to be available "next quarter to makers of high-end systems like workstations and 1U servers."
