Intel halts development of Cryo Cooling technology

A few years ago, Intel started developing a sub-zero CPU cooling technology for 10th Gen desktop processors named Cryo Cooling. This technology, used on a few products like the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360 Sub-Zero, was supported up to the 13th Gen processors, but that's where it stops. As of now, Intel Cryo Cooling development has been shut down.

The Cryo Cooling Technology page on Intel's website was updated to confirm that no further support is planned, as spotted by @momomo_us. Although the development of the technology was halted on July 1st, the company will support it until the end of this year.

The technology was introduced for the 10th-generation Comet Lake processors and was used on the subsequent 13th-generation Raptor Lake processors to cool CPUs below 0 degrees Celsius to improve performance. However, despite its innovative approach, the technology was not widely accepted in the tech industry. The cancellation of the Cryo Cooling Technology comes just before the release of the 14th Generation Raptor Lake Refresh, which unfortunately will not support this cooling method.

Interestingly, the Cryo Cooling approach was used in some third-party devices, including the Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360 Sub-Zero waterblocks and the EKWB EK-QuantumX Delta TEC waterblocks.

Intel didn't share an official reason for halting the development of this cooling technology.
