Boyd Innovation Will Cool Next-Generation AI Processors

Boyd’s Liquid-Cooling Innovation Will Reduce High-Performance Data Center and Artificial Intelligence Energy Use, in Collaboration with the Department of Energy and NVIDIA

New York, New York – August 1st, 2023 — Boyd is innovating liquid-cooling technology so artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced data centers can be more energy- and resource-efficient. Boyd’s liquid technology will cool power-dense AI processors and high-performance data centers. Current extreme air-cooled technologies face challenges when sustainably cooling to AI power requirements. According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), current data center cooling accounts for 33-40% of data center energy use. Next-generation compute power compounds cooling-system energy demand. “AI chip and data center cooling is energy intensive,” said Boyd CTO Jerry Toth. “Cooling technology must stay ahead of next-generation processor design to enable innovation. We’re doing this with sustainability and carbon footprint reduction in mind.” Boyd is collaborating with NVIDIA and additional partners to research advanced, reliable liquid-cooling systems. The liquid-cooled technology will reduce the operational carbon footprint of future data centers and high-performance AI. The DOE’s groundbreaking COOLERCHIPS program targets to reduce data center cooling energy consumption to less than 5% of data center energy use.
