XMG has unveiled what the company claims to be the world’s first portable liquid laptop cooling solution.
Developed as an optional add-on for the company’s upcoming XMG NEO 15 (E22) laptop, the XMG Neo is an external laptop cooling solution that comprises a small enclosure housing a 120 mm radiator with fan, pump, and liquid reservoir. Setup partially involves filling the unit with cooling liquid via a funnel and connecting the device using self-locking, quick-release connectors.
“The current prototype of the external liquid cooling was operated on the pre-production model of an XMG NEO 15 (E22) with Core i7-12700H and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti in the overboost performance profile,” XMG noted in its press release before teasing its potential cooling performance.
“The result: By using the XMG OASIS, the temperatures of the processor and graphics card drop by around 20°C, while at the same time the laptop’s fans only operate at up to 50 percent of their maximum speed. Even under very demanding gaming or rendering loads, the laptop’s operating noise level does not exceed 38 dB(A) (own measurement from a distance of 25 centimetres).”
XMG says that the OASIS and NEO 15 (E22) should be available to purchase by the end of the month from its partner shop, bestware.com. The first deliveries are set for mid-February.
