IBM Watercools Successor of Record-breaking Power6 Supercomputer

San Francisco (CA) - IBM announced the replacement for its record-breaking Power 570 supercomputer. However, the Power 575 is a bit more more than just a successor, since IBM decided that it cannot rely on air-cooling anymore and adopted water-cooling instead: To cool every one of the 16 sockets in the system, IBM uses water-chilled copper plates positioned on top of the Power6 CPUs.

The story is too old to be commented.

Even so if you start with processor at 5 Ghz the aim should be to get it to 6 Ghz or higher. Its not the first processor to touch 5 Ghz we all know that. I am more surprised that it has 32 cores so much sooner than the others and can still run at 4-5+ Ghz.
