Asetek unveils technology of liquid cooling for laptops

A liquid cooling system is under process in an Asetek’s workshop, which seems to have the potential to become the next generation cooling system

It has earlier been proved that liquids are much better when it comes to cooling with respect to air. They can easily transfer the heat from one place to another. We can say now it seems like our future laptops will be cooled with the help of the liquids and might even prove to be a better option in case of the busy CPUs and the GPUs.

The liquids in your system will allow having a more compact design for cooling rather than attaching more of bigger fans. Asetek seems to have prototyped a liquid cooling system for an Alienware M18x gaming laptop. In general the heavy duty gaming laptops are equipped with a lot of specific parts which lead them to get overheated.

The Alienware M18x includes the Intel Core i7 processor which runs at 3.5 GHz, along with a Dual AMD Radeon HD 6990M graphics card. Thus seriously needs a heavy-duty cooling system for the device. Most of them are even equipped with 2 or 3 cooling systems.

The liquid cooling system which will be placed instead of these air cooling systems will circulate the liquid through every part of the laptop that needs cooling. It may prove to be a more space efficient as well as an effective mode of cooling the laptops. Benchmarking of this new liquid cooling system also reported an increase in performance ranging from 18% to 23% across the board.

This whole new concept is still in prototype stage and Asetek is yet to comment anything about this whole matter. So with all these we are left with a hope of better cooling systems in the future portable devices.
