AMD Stuffs a Computer Inside a Heatsink
CES 2012 is winding down, but not before this little gem from the show is revealed. What you see below may appear to be just an ordinary Cooler Master V6 heatsink, but if you look a little closer, you will see that AMD crammed a computer inside the heatsink. That's right, there is a computer inside of this heatsink that functions just like any other computer. AMD put a nano-ITX board on one side of the heatsink with an E-350 APU running the show, while the other side of the heatsink has a fan to cool everything down. On the bottom of the heatsink are the rear I/O connectors for the motherboard, and if you have this installed in your case, you will have some wires running inside of it. This may seem like a crazy idea, but it would serve pretty well as a media server since the main computer would not have to be turned on - just the E-350 system.
