Small tech turns on the big chill for overheated chips
HP, Intel and a handful of startups are among those working feverishly to keep ever-more-powerful server processors from becoming too hot to handle. While the problem is not new, time has become of the essence in solving it, as chips just one-eighth-inch square soon will emit as much heat as a 100-watt light bulb, HP says.
