    Acer Predator PowerGem, a new material intended to aid in the cooling of PC components.

    Apparently it's better than natural graphite and four times heat conduction of copper, and new TIM will allow for 77 percent higher wattage (or Acer indirectly saying Intel's next 14++++++++++++++++++++ nm power requirements)

    So according to Acer this is better than anything else. My take is Acer somehow found a way to extract "God's semen and use it as a thermal interface material". Thats why it's better than anything else. Since its made by God!!! They call it "Powergem"

    This is probably a diamond-based thermal paste, nothing really new. Acer will probably have higher diamond content than other paste like ICD, with smaller particle size to prevent scratches. Something like Coolermaster MasterGel Maker which also uses diamond particles but does not leave visible scratches.

    graphene is a possibility. Diamond paste isn't going to reach this type of conductivity but something like a foil is possible.
