Possible Fanless Intel Motherboard

Since purchasing my M1 to replace an Intel MSI laptop I don’t know if I can stand going back to having a fan in my laptop.

I am curious if there is a chance of a fanless Intel motherboard in the future for a Framework laptop.

The all aluminum chassis could work just like my M1 to dissipate the heat.

Is this even a remote possibility with Intel or would it have to be an ARM based CPU?

There are already existing fanless Intel laptops and tablets. No reason it couldn’t be done with a variant of the FL, with a redesign of the heatsink. They may need to use the lower power Tiger Lake UP4 series, which seems to only support LPDDR4x memory.
