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.

I wonder if it's even possible to improve upon what's already available by any reasonable degree, pun not intended.Quote

RGB! didn't you know this adds performance to anything you add it on to? I put some on my washing machine and managed to overclock the spin cycle by an extra 100rpm
I think you're right though, gains may only be marginal but with both AMD and Intel moving away from monolithic dies there may be changes that could be made to the plate itself? or the directions that the heatpipes go in? IDK but I bet they have some ideas.Quote

Lets not start discussing RGB. I might lose respect for you :PQuote

There's no such thing as brown light, so Noctua couldn't possibly go RGB.Quote

So how do we see Brown then and.. Well wouldn't it just be 'B' lighting? All the hues of poop!
I wonder if it's a much larger contact area on the new heatsink(s) to work better with chiplet designs?

I'm very curious to see what the new 140's will be, especially if they release new versions of the Industrial series as well. Just had my first 140 Industrial fail on me. Stopped spinning and I tried hitting it with a full PWM signal since everything was running around 40% and the magic electrical smoke poofed out!Quote
