Microfluidics: DARPA is betting embedded water droplets could cool next-gen chips

Ivy Bridge die... on fire!
DARPA and Lockheed Martin have a plan to build microfluidic cooling into modern microprocessors. This could dramatically improve CPU cooling and break the bottleneck on clock speed scaling — at least, for a little while.
