Hitachi Liquid-Cooling System Headed To HP Workstation

The high-end workstation is designed for use in digital content creation, scientific research, manufacturing, and the oil and gas industry.

Hewlett-Packard plans to offer Hitachi's newly developed liquid-cooling system in HP's high-end workstation used in manufacturing, research, and the entertainment industry.

HP is the first workstation manufacturer in the United States to agree to use the Hitachi system, which uses a liquid to cool processors instead of traditional fans. HP plans to offer the new technology in its xw9400 workstation, which is powered by Advanced Micro Devices' 64-bit Opteron chip, company officials said Tuesday.

Heat dissipation is a growing problem as increasingly powerful computer components, such as CPUs and graphic chips, run hotter. The Hitachi system provides more efficient and better cooling, and is less noisy than traditional fans, according to the companies.

The HP xw9400 is a high-end workstation used in digital content creation, scientific research, manufacturing, and the oil and gas industry. HP didn't say when the machine would be available with the Hitachi system, or release pricing. Current models start at $5,350.

Hitachi, based in Tokyo, expects the demand for cooler machines to drive sales for liquid-cooling technology in workstations and computer servers, and eventually create new markets in consumer products and industrial fields.
