These insane cooling solutions just don't deal with the larger issues that come with having too high clockspeeds on a mobile device. I've never understood the obsession with having periodic boosts to 5Ghz on mobile. Infact, I don't think a mobile chip should ever go above 4Ghz. Laptop users rarely use that power let alone care for it. Ice Lake is a step in the right direction. I think this cooling solution is worthless, because that heat is still going *Somewhere*, and on a laptop, that somewhere is usually not the air surrounding the device but instead a blanket or an individuals legs/hands.
