Intel plans to invest more than US$700 million ($1004 million) in a major R&D lab for data centre technologies including heating, cooling and water usage.

Construction will begin this year at the Oregon site, and the lab is expected to open in late 2023.

It will also qualify, test and enable Intel data centre products including Xeon, Optane, network interfaces and switch gear, Agilex FPGAs, Xe architecture, Habana accelerators and future products under development.

The lab will also include an advanced technology showcase for customers and partners to observe and test Intel products in a variety of data centre environments.

In related news, Intel introduced an immersion liquid cooling solution and reference design, which it says is the first example of open intellectual property (open IP) in the technology industry.

According to Intel, the design is easy to deploy and easily scalable, and will allow partners to introduce immersion liquid cooled Intel-based systems that help increase data centre power density and thus enhance operational efficiency.

Intel cited research showing immersion cooling with energy reuse could reduce carbon emissions by 45% compared with traditional approaches data centre cooling.

Taiwanese manufacturers will be first to benefit before the project is scaled globally.

"Intel's dedication to its global partnerships is evident with these announcements today. The future of the data centre and data centre design is based on innovative and sustainable technologies and practices, and I'm proud of the work we're doing every day to help make a sustainable future a reality," said Intel executive vice president and datacenter and ai group general manager Sandra Rivera.
