Apple could possibly take advantage of a new processor-cooling technique announced yesterday by Cooligy, a Stanford University spin-off company. In fact, the company said it has already prototyped the system with Apple, Intel and AMD. “Cooligy’s approach — called Active Micro-Channel Cooling (AMC) — involves scoring hundreds of tiny channels into a silicon layer placed on the upper surface of the chip package, reports The Register. “Water — or any other fluid, for that matter — circulates through the channels drawing heat away from the core… The Apple connection is interesting since Cooligy’s could play a major role in allowing the company to ship G5-based PowerBooks. The 64-bit CPU requires a major computer-controlled cooling system in its desktop incarnation, rendering it effectively useless for mobile applications.”
