Noctua plans to release an NH-D15 successor in 2021 alongside new 140mm fans

For many years, Noctua has been known as one of the world’s premier CPU heatsink manufacturers, offering customers stellar performance levels with the company’s signature brown and beige fans. 

In recent years, Noctua has expanded to offer its users all-black Chromax series editions of their premiere cooler designs, but behind the scenes, Noctua has been working in its next-generation flagship heatsink, a replacement for their world-class NH-D15.   

In mid-late 2021, Noctua plans to launch its next-generation NH-D series heatsink, seemingly coinciding with the release of the company’s “next-generation 140mm fan” launch. This seemingly simultaneous makes sense, as a next-generation heatsink design is best paired with new fan designs. Altering both aspects of their next-generation cooler gives Noctua a real opportunity to deliver a significant performance leap over their already top-tier offerings. 

Given the pre-release nature of Noctua’s hardware roadmap, it is possible that Noctua’s future products could be delayed. This means that Noctua’s NHD-15 successor could be delayed into 2022, though this seems unlikely.

As a brand, Noctua has a stellar reputation, making the prospect of a new flagship heatsink design incredibly exciting. As CPU core counts and TDPs continue to rise, Noctua is preparing a new top-class heatsink to meet the needs of future PC builders. We look forward to seeing this hypothetical NH-D16 cooler and hearing about the design innovations that will make its increased cooling performance possible.
