Sugon Unveils Liquid-cooled Prototype at ISC’14

sugon

In this video from ISC’14, Shen Weidong from Sugon describes the company’s liquid-cooled “personal supercomputer” prototype designed to run in office environments. “The PHPC300 has 12 blades. Each blade is a sealed box with (3M Novec) liquid in it with a boiling point of about 50 degrees Celsius. So the liquid near the CPU will evaporate and then be circulated to a condenser where it is turned back into a liquid. We can use this technology in China to achieve a PUE of 1.05.”
