Intel makes water cooler to do 5Ghz chips

Some editing hardware related news.

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/2006/03...liquid_cooler/

They claim to have witnessed it overclock a 3.8Ghz extreme processor to 5.01Ghz, with ram and FSB overclocked. The price is around $50. A effort to increase thermal management to allow for hotter processors was announced by Intel a few years back.

Now, we know what Steve Jobs must have been thinking for a future, Mac, I wonder if it will do multi-core at 5Ghz.

Interesting to note that IBM's next power PC is going to be 5Ghz plus to, so not much gain in going Intel on speed, with all the delays.

If IBM shares their tech improvements with AMD (as they have done under agreements in the past) AMD might not be left out, but they have a upcoming Dual core equivalent to a one core 5Ghz.

Intel is relying on marketing hype these days. That chip would cook bacon. Fujitsu, NEC, Toshiba and TMTA will be making the ultra-cool running chips of 2007.

I think that is the idea, it thermally moves the water around (even boiling would work) in a sealed system the water is goign nowhere, there is even water vapor on the surface of he sun.

Great designs can make many times a difference in performance compared to me too designs (though I think in this case it might be limited to a few times or a large fraction). We await to see what the true results are, but in this day and age of cineform, and h264, I think it is promising news.

I believe Steve Jobs' biggest beef with the G5 Power PC is that they could never get it to run cool enough to put in a laptop and he didn't like being stuck with G4 laptop performance while the rest of the Mac line was using G5 (64 bit).

But I'm sure that we are going to be seeing more and more systems run with liquid cooling as time progresses.

Yes, but I think the other beef was that the Power chips were lagging behind on Ghz for years (which is also a marketable asset) on higher end CPU versions (apart from the advantage of being able to draw directly from the PC chipset/parts base).

I think the point is mute now, that IBM have announced there own 5Ghz+ designs (I don't remember wherever they are low powered designs, but I think that is what the process was aiming at).
