Liquid cooling 'super charges' IT performance

Research from the University of Leeds and Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Centre (PSNC) has revealed that Icetope’s data centre liquid cooling technology offers a significant performance advantages.

The research findings of the technology, produced by the British-based sustainable IT cooling provider, found:

The possibility of full-time ‘turbo mode’ IT in almost any climate (up to a 56% boost in the case of some Intel processors)

  • Massive 40.8 per cent improvement in IT performance/power improvements (as compared to state-of-the-art air cooled servers of the same specification)
  • Partial Power Usage Effectiveness figures of 1.02

“The new study speaks for itself,” said Peter Hopton, Iceotope founder and Chief Visionary Officer. “Iceotope’s cooling technology has the capacity to increase IT performance considerably through full-time processor turbo modes at densities and temperatures that wouldn’t normally support turbo.

“It’s like paying for a standard model Volkswagen Golf but getting the performance of a turbocharged V6 and the efficiency of an eco-engine. In the UK for instance, a 1 megawatt Iceotope data centre would deliver the same computing services for £300k less a year, with a third off the electricity bill –not to mention the fact that the operator would need to buy less servers.”
