AMD is hot with cooling system
Roy Rubenstein Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) has demonstrated a PC running at 1GHz using an innovative cooling system. The prototype PC, called the Super-G, uses AMD’s forthcoming K7 microprocessor cooled by a system from KryoTech. Cooling the microprocessor allows engineers to increase the clock speed without worrying about overheating the chip. “The Super-G is derived from two years of technical co-operation between Kryo-Tech and AMD,” said Al Quick, chairman and CEO of KryoTech. The Super-G cooling system uses a vapour phase refrigeration technology similar to that used in refrigerators. KryoTech said it will ship Super-G PCs later this year and will release pricing information at a future date. AMD competitor Intel has also demonstrated a 1GHz PC but it is believed to have used liquid nitrogen rather than a commercial system to cool the processor.
