Digital giants such as Facebook, Google and Apple are creating vast amounts of data they need to process ” and they need to process fast,” – “Why? Because we users expect our computers, phones and tablets to be way faster than the year before.” So far, the semiconductor industry has met those expectations, but Gordon Moore’s prediction that chip memory would double every 24 months, with prices cut in half, is hitting the wall, she said. To cope with consumer expectations, chip makers have come up with all sorts of new approaches to solving the problems of the increased heat that comes with increased power and energy waste. At least one company, NVIDIA, has come up with a “super-server” that has the power of 300 servers in one box. “Believe me, it’s fast, but that comes at a price because half the energy it uses goes to waste,” . NVIDIA has created a complicated system to cool the processor. IBM also created a low-pressure system to cool their high-performance chips. Based on technology from CERN, Incooling has developed an on-chip technology on the way to an in-chip cooling solution that stacks chips with cooling in between, tech that uses high-pressure (700 bars) CO2 pumped through nano-tubes the width of a hair. That allows increased clock speed as heat capture increases thermal stability by 10 times.
