The paper deals with problems of design of promising reconfigurable computer systems with liquid cooling for Xilinx Virtex UltraScale FPGAs. Architecture, placement and comparative technical parameters of systems with immersion liquid cooling are considered. Results of design, prototyping and experimental testing of the principal technical solutions of the designed computational module of the next generation are discussed. The computational module is intended for the creation of high-performance computer systems with liquid cooling with performance of 1 PFlops in a standard 47U computer rack with power of 150 kWatt. The reconfigurable computer system with liquid cooling provides considerable advantage in such technical and economical parameters as the real performance and the specific performance, power efficiency, mass and dimension parameters, etc. in comparison with similar systems.

Keywords: reconfigurable computer systems, FPGAs, liquid cooling, computational module, high-performance computer systems, real and specific performance, power efficiency.
