This Is What Intel Thinks GPUs Could Look Like in 2035

What will graphics cards look like in 2035? Intel’s graphics team pondered that very question during the company’s Odyssey event at Computex, where it showed off a variety of concepts drafted by artist and community member Cristiano Siqueira. Siqueira had presented some fan shroud designs before at the last Odyssey event in March, but he’s returned with a few new ideas.

“SIRIUS”

“ANDROMEDA” (Xbox?)

“GEMINI”

“OBLIVION”

“PROMETHEUS”

Legit Reviews says the majority of these were designed under the presumption that future GPUs would utilize ionic cooling rather than fans. “Ionic-cooling has been around for years an electric current across two electrodes to move air.  When a voltage is applied across the two electrodes, the ions flow from the emitter electrode to the collector. During this process air molecules across an area, so you could cool down a hot spot this way.”
