Intel talks about laminar jet cooling for notebooks

Posted on Saturday, October 25 2008 @ 00:18:27 CEST by

Intel unveiled a new cooling technology for notebooks at the Intel Developer Forum in Taiwan this week. The chip giant demonstrated a system that uses laminar jet technology to cool a laptop's skin to prevent that a notebook becomes uncomfortable hot on your lap:
Eden showed an animation of a jet engine to prove his point. The inside of a jet engine can get as hot as 1,000 degrees centigrade. But the jet engine's wall must be kept cool because it is connected to the wing where the fuel is. To keep the engine heat away from the wing, laminar air flow cooling is used.

A laminar flow occurs when a fluid--or air in this case--flows in parallel layers.

Intel demonstrated a system using the same laminar air flow technology to move the heat off a laptop's skin. "We are licensing it to our customers so they can keep making thinner and thinner laptops," Eden said.
More info at CNET. Intel also confirmed the next-generation Calpella notebook platform will be launched in the second half of 2009. Calpella will feature the first mobile Nehalem-based processor from Intel with integrated graphics.
