More efficient windows AC unit?

Are there consumer windows AC that uses the condensate to pre cool incoming air before dripping them outside?

Just about all the current window A/C's use the condensate water to cool the condenser.
If it's extremely humid there could be some dripping due to an overflow.

In the pictures below are two window unit condenser fans. The ring on the fan is called a slinger.
It spins in the water and slings it up onto the condenser coil and helps cool it.

That's simpler than I thought.
Thanks.
