IBM has unveiled a new supercomputer called Hydro-Cluster that uses water to cool down the device and reduce overall energy consumption.
With this new technology, data centers using Hydro-Cluster supercomputers can reduce their energy consumption by 40% and use 80% fewer air conditioners.
Hydro-Cluster uses water-chilled copper plates above each of its microprocessors that continuously remove heat from the electronics. IBM researchers say they are also working on computers that would allow water to go directly inside the chip. Once inside, the water can be routed out of the computer and pumped into the heating system for re-use. Hydro-Cluster is expected to be available beginning May 6th. See a video explaining the IBM Hydro-Cluster below.

About the Geek Mind
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
