As hardware performance increases in ever smaller laptop cases, there grows a greater need to help keep all those higher performance components as cool as possible. Liquid cooling in laptops in not a new process and has been around since 2002.
However Asetek have unveiled a demonstration of a new liquid cooled system they have fitted to an Alienware M18x Prototype. With initial tests indicating that performance of the laptop increase around 18-23 percent.
The Asetek system combines both the cooling for the GPU and CPU together using a cold plate system providing the highest cooling performance available from the system.
“Hi, Zack from Asetek here and today I’ll be showing you an Alienware gaming laptop that demonstrates the advantages of liquid cooling in an overclocked notebook.
The thermal benefits that enable overclocking in the “slim form factor” of our laptop also enable the increased performance and cost savings of using desktop processors in All-In-Ones as well as quiet operation from maximum performance parts in mobile workstations.”
