ZutaCore has unveiled a waterless, direct-to-chip liquid cooling system specifically designed for NVIDIA’s GB200 Grace Blackwell Superchip. At next week’s Dell Technologies World, ZutaCore will showcase the first dielectric coldplates to support NVIDIA’s superchip. This announcement marks a significant advancement in sustainable and cost-effective AI computing by offering a unique solution that can handle extreme processing power without conventional cooling drawbacks.

ZutaCore direct-to-chip liquid cooling solution

The ZutaCore HyperCool technology introduces a monolithic cold plate capable of cooling up to 2,800 watts, a notable achievement given the powerful specifications of the Grace Blackwell superchip. This superchip integrates over 400 billion transistors, featuring two NVIDIA Blackwell GPUs, an NVIDIA Grace CPU, and two I/O chips, demanding substantial cooling capacity to operate efficiently. ZutaCore’s solution is poised to address these needs with a dielectric cold plate that sits directly atop the superchip, optimizing space and enhancing cooling performance.

ZutaCore plans to demonstrate how its technology supports the NVIDIA GB200 platform, which includes capabilities to cool an impressive 120kW of rack power with minimal modifications required for existing installations. This approach simplifies the integration process and improves reliability by reducing potential points of failure through its streamlined design, which incorporates only one input and output. Additionally, the system is equipped with OCP-compliant blind mate connectors, supporting up to 5,600kW.

The advantages of ZutaCore’s waterless cooling technology extend beyond mere hardware integration. It represents a shift towards more sustainable data center operations by eliminating the leakage risks associated with traditional water-based systems. This is crucial for AI data centers, where the operational demand for computing power is high, and the risk of downtime due to equipment failure can be costly. ZutaCore’s technology ensures that AI workloads can be handled more reliably, with improved energy efficiency and reduced total cost of ownership.

Moreover, ZutaCore’s HyperCool technology is part of a growing ecosystem that includes partnerships with industry giants such as Dell Technologies, ASUS, Pegatron, and SuperMicro. The company has also expanded its impact within the NVIDIA ecosystem by supporting previous generations of GPUs and securing strategic OEM agreements to provide AI servers optimized for HyperCool technology. In addition, its partnership with UNICOM Engineering aims to deliver warrantied, HyperCooled AI servers, reinforcing ZutaCore’s commitment to enhancing AI compute capabilities sustainably and efficiently.

The ZutaCore waterless, direct-to-chip cooling technology for NVIDIA’s high-performance GPUs illustrates the shift toward advanced liquid cooling solutions in high-end systems. We recently delved into CoolIT’s solution in our lab, addressing similar thermal management challenges in high-end computing components. To learn more about ZutaCore, we have a podcast about their technology and how it works.
