The new Thermal Sheets made from densely packed silicon have a thermal resistance rating of 0.4-0.2K·cm2/W, and were showcased at the Techno-Frontier 2012 event in Tokyo, where two processors where put side by side, to compare results.
The EX20000C Thermal Sheets created by Sony are just 0.3mm in thickness can can be produced without any imperfections. Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
