massive amounts of data or training AI models liquid-cooled graphics cards.
The company announced at Computex that it’s introducing a liquid-cooled version
its A100 compute card, and says that it consumes 30 percent less power than the air-cooled version.
Nvidia’s also pledging that this isn’t just a one-off, it’s already got more liquid-cooled
server cards on its roadmap, and hints at bringing the tech to other applications like in-car
systems that need to keep cool in enclosed spaces. Of course, Tesla’s recent recall for
overheating chips shows how tricky that can be, even with liquid cooling.
According to Nvidia, reducing the energy needed to perform complex computations could make a big impact
the company says data centers use over one percent of the world’s electricity, and 40 percent of that is down to cooling.
