A Swiss team has created tiny, fluid-filled channels in microchips to spirit away heat and save energy
The cooling technology has the potential to become a key part of power converters ranging from small devices to electric cars. The converter Matioli's team created pushed out more than three times the power of a typical laptop charger but was the size of a USB stick. He compares it to the evolution of a computer that once filled a room and now fits into a pocket. “We could start imagining the same thing for power electronics in applications that go all the way from power supplies to electric vehicles to solar inverters for solar panels and anything related to energy,” Matioli says. “So that opens a lot of possibilities.”
I was reading this article, and I was wondering if someone more technical could tell me is this the future for gaming cpu/gpu? What do you think?
