Through a lot of work ASUS has helped design an effective 10 mm heatpipe that provides superior thermal transfer as compared to 8 mm pipes.

ARM works very closely with the EDA (Electronic Design and Automation) software producers, like Cadence and Synopsys, to improve time to market and develop more efficient chips for the licensees.

In The News From around the web

And that means much more fierce competition, and though that would suck for both companies (Game Theory), for us consumers, nothing could be better.
These guys have never failed us in the past so I owe it to them to not label it as a rumor.
The Project Sky-Bridge will feature the new family of APUs and SOCs based on the low-power 20nm Cortex A57 cores with AMD’s GCN core architecture.
The ARM K12 Cores would be targeted towards server, embedded and semi-custom markets so its clear that AMD is once again looking for the dense market to make an approach for the new APUs/SOCs..

ARM Introduces the Mali-T700 GPU Family: ARM Refreshes Too!

by Josh Walrath |
The ARMv7 and ARMv8 architectures are very power efficient, yet provide enough performance to handle the vast majority of tasks utilized on smartphones and tablets (as well as a handful of laptops).
These are obviously not ready for prime time, but ARM is working with the foundries and software design people to prepare the road for their licensees.
It cools very well, it overclocks to a nice degree, and it again is not all that much more expensive than a reference GTX 780.
The problem with large heatpipes is that they are a bit harder to produce, and designs larger than 8 mm had some real structural issues not to mention slightly less efficient at transferring heat.
