About Corintis

Corintis has developed a range of novel microfluidic cooling technologies for use in current and next-generation data centers & HPC applications. These are used to improve compute sustainability and enable the next generation of AI workloads powering applications from generative AI systems to climate modeling and drug discovery.

Current cooling systems are not only limited but also wasteful; cooling data centers consume more power than London and New York combined. At Corintis, we remove these limitations by integrating cooling directly inside the chip. We enable the sustainable computing of the future to address the biggest global challenges.
