Waytronx, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: WYNX), the leading provider of openly licensable advanced systems cooling solutions, announced two new reference designs to enable OEMs and ODMs to manage severe thermal issues in advanced processors. The WayCool(TM) U350GX Graphics Cooler reference design offers a noiseless thermal management solution to address extreme heat challenges from powerful graphics chips; while the WayCool(TM) U400NT reference design is the industry’s first single-slot 400-Watt integrated cooler that can manage multiple heat sources on the motherboard, including high-end graphics and video game cards.
Waytronx demonstrated these technologies to targeted press representatives and key market partners at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) last week in Las Vegas. The technologies were universally recognized by both the press representatives and potential partners as being unique in the industry. Special notice was given to the demonstration of U400NT, the first cooling solution able to address the thermal issues of not one, but two nVidia 8800 graphic cards with single slot, fanless systems.
The WayCool U350GX and WayCool U400NT are pre-defined, tested reference designs customized to address intense heat and improve performance for specific engineering combinations. The reference designs are developed from the breakthrough WayCool(TM) Thermal Management Architecture, a complete, advanced cooling platform comprised of the patented WayCool(TM) Carbon Technology for greater heat transfer capacity, WayCool Quiet Fans for a quiet cooling, and the patented WayCool Hybrid Mesh for advanced liquid cooling isothermicity. The demonstration at CES featured the WayCool U350GX reference design using the ATI R600 graphic card; and the plumbed version of WayCool U400NT design providing thermal management to a CPU and two market-leading graphic cards.
“System developers for advanced processors are saddled with cooling solutions that are noisy and bulky. Now Waytronx delivers an answer to their design challenges with the quiet and self-contained WayCool U350GX and WayCool U400NT reference designs,” said William Clough, chief executive officer of Waytronx. “These two technology prototypes represent significant progress towards the application of WayCool Architecture into key markets where intense heat is threatening and compromising system performance. They also further affirm WayCool technology’s flexible, scalable and customizable cooling architecture.”
The WayCool U400NT reference design is the industry’s first 400-Watt integrated CPU and peripherals cooler that allows the thermal management of advanced electronics in a single-slot configuration. The WayCool U400NT, which can be plumbed to alternative heat sources such as graphic cards, memory, or northbridge chipsets, allows one cooler to manage multiple heat sources on the motherboard without fans, multiple pumps or additional loss of real estate. WayCool U400NT design is a quiet solution that addresses severe thermal issues by pumping heat from the graphic chip back to a single high capacity cooler over the CPU for aerial disbursement. For system designers looking to build smaller and more powerful gaming PCs, workstations and portable devices, the U400NT design is a cost-effective, tested and efficient solutions that can significantly accelerate time-to-market.
The WayCool U350GX reference design is a standalone, 350-Watt graphic card cooling solution which can be universally adapted to cool the extreme heat generated from high performance graphic cards. The WayCool Carbon technology and WayCool hybrid mesh heat transport solution complement the U350GX, and silently address heat generated by high-profile graphic chips such as nVidia 8800 and ATI 3870XT in demonstrations. The WayCool U350GX, which can cool entire graphics subsystems, also offers OEM, ODM and system designers a flexible and quiet heat removal platform. Much like the U400NT, the U350GX’s unique hybrid solution allows it to also be plumbed to alternative heat sources such as memory or northbridge chipsets.
“Waytronx unique hybrid air-liquid thermal transport system, coupled with its patent pending carbon interface, allow these devices to approach thermal management in a systemic fashion addressing multiple heat sources on the same motherboard — there simply is no equivalent technology available in the market today,” said Michael Schuette, Ph.D., technical fellow at Waytronx and vice president of technology development at OCZ Technology.
WayCool U400NT and WayCool U350 GX reference designs each include bill of materials, engineering drawings, application notes, test results and samples, and are available through licensing agreements. In addition to WayCool U400NT and WayCool U350GX, Waytronx also licenses the WayCool U400DT reference design, which is incorporated into OCZ Technology’s 400-Watt HydroJet CPU Cooler.
