Smarter AI Takes Liquid Cooling Mainstream: 6th Generation Lenovo Neptune Liquid Cooling

Lenovo Neptune™ has led the world in data center cooling technology for more than a decade, pioneering its proprietary method of using liquid to remove heat and enabling customers to realize up to a 40% reduction in power consumption compared to traditional air-cooled systems. The direct water-cooling solution recycles loops of warm water to cool data center systems and keep all the server components cool, reducing the need for power-hungry system fans in data center operation. 

With more than 40 industry-first patents, Lenovo is pushing the envelope on liquid cooling technology, with the 6th generation of Lenovo Neptune liquid cooling, extending its industry-leading Lenovo Neptune liquid cooling for mainstream use throughout its ThinkSystem V3 and V4 portfolios with new design innovations:

  • Expanded Neptune™ availability throughout the mainstream portfolio: Mainstream ThinkSystem V3 and V4 offerings include options for direct open-loop water cooling for CPUs.
  • New industry-unique cold plate designs: Optimized and patented cold plate designs for CPUs and accelerators maximize heat extraction for accelerators consuming ~700W now with future designs for more than 1000W.
  • New on-memory cooling technology for ThinkSystem platforms: Lenovo patented memory cooling for dense HPC systems will be integrated into select ThinkSystem Platforms with direct to DRAM liquid cooling, allowing customers to select from CPU and memory options to efficiently reduce heat and maximize performance where it is needed most
  • 6th Generation Neptune™ Warm-Water Cooling: New warm-water cooling designs will allow operation without the need for any specialized data center air conditioning. Neptune™ warm-water cooling turns waste heat into value by allowing hot-water reuse in the facility.
