You guys might want to take a look at this EETimes article from three years ago, before taking this announcement. http://www.eetimes.com/electronics-news/4077160/IBM-GIT-demo-3D-die-with-microchannel-cooling

Indeed, another example of how duct tape remains the ultimate engineering tool. Comments about the need for more information to understand this are certainly understandable. The nitty gritty details remain sketchy at this point. Presumably we will find out at least a little bit more once IBM and 3M make the announcement (which the WSJ report indicates will happen this week).

Double-sided sticky tape to the rescue once again! ;)

Sure... need more info to understand this... if implemented what are advantages over 3D transistor implementation??

Certainly, from server blade experience, we need to flow air or other fluid in between chip planes because stagnant medium will warm up which is inadequate for heat sinking. So I had thought they were heading in some microfluidic direction.

Need more technical information to understand the concept.

Many electrical engineers seem to have not passed thermodynamics. Heat conduction requires a temperature gradient. No such helpful gradient between stacked chips (especially in the middle).

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
