Asetek showcased a new technology that allows such cooling systems to be used inside gaming notebooks, workstation-grade laptops and AIOs.
The liquid cooling system was demonstrated inside an Alienware M18x notebook and it comprises three compact radiators, three waterblocks and a water pump.
The latter is placed right under the palm rest area, while the three waterblocks are used to cool the two Radeon HD 6990M GPUs installed inside the M18x and the notebook’s Core i7-2920XM CPU.
To showcase the power of its liquid cooling system, Asetek overclocked both the CPU and the GPUs installed in the notebook.
In the case of the Core i7 processor, this had its frequency increased from 3.5Ghz to 4.4GHz, while the Radeon HD 7990M graphics cards had their operating clocks raised from 680MHz to 800MHz.
According to Asetek, this enabled the M18x to reach a 23 percent higher 3D Mark Vantage score, while also reducing the noise output of the stock air-cooled laptop.
