New fan system from Intel: 2x as effective

    Along with a better layout of components inside the MacBook Pro (currently almost the same for 7 years), a case better designed for heat dissipation, better thermal paste (currently poorly applied and far from the most effective), this new fan, if used in the new MacBook Pros, could conceivably increase the quality of cooling of the notebook hugely.

    One of the reasons the MacBook Pro lags so far behind it's PC competitors in terms of graphics is because Apple insists it's high end notebook line must be 1" thick, making using anything but a low-mid-range GPU impossible due to heat issues.

    Perhaps this could change that?

    Is this tech too early for the new MBPs? Would Apple have had the ability to adopt earlier so as to be ready for manufacture?

    The Intel guy hopes it will be ready to go two years from now. Maybe for the mobile Westmere...........or perhaps the Larabee stock cooler (desktop video cards use similar coolers to laptops, although they are usually bigger)

    Not going in the Montevina MBP.

    BTW, you still haven't explained why it is you need a Mac OS X notebook with a high-end GPU. Does the Mac Pro or iMac seriously not work for you? PC laptop not an option?
