[Dailytech] An Incredible Discovery: Graphene Transistors Self-Cool

post #1 of 77

What they found was that the resistive heating ("waste heat") effect in graphene was weaker than its thermo-electric cooling effect at times. This is certainly not the case in silicon or other semiconductors where resistive heating far surpasses cooling effects.

What this means is that graphene circuits may not get hot like traditional silicon-based ones. This could open the door to dense 3D chips and more.

Interesting...I'd still water cool it though.

Edit: I should have put this in the Science news section, if a mod would move it that would be great.

yeah well by the sound of it, your water cooling could actually heat it up instead.

Now, how much voltage can we pump into this before it stops holding true? Looking forward to the massive OC's we'll (hopefully) be able to do with graphene cpu's sometime in the future.

Isn't that the point?

So it will dissipate heat better than it can create it... good things to come people...

Random thought: I hope, that when I'm old and have grandkids, I'll be able to say "When I was a kid, we used silicon transistors, and a 5GHz overclock was considered an amazing achievement."

3d chips would be huge. It would change microprocessors and the limits of microprocessor designs immensely. Like the transition from vaccuum tubes to silicon transitors, that big.

Sounds like instead of keeping it cool, you have to keep it warm to prevent condensation. Cool! Now you can have a graphite processor for summer and a silicon processor for winter!
