This week at the Hot Chips conference, Tachyum CEO Dr. Radoslav Danilak described how the company’s its Prodigy Universal Processor Chip combines the best attributes of CPU, GPU and TPU architectures to overcome HPC challenges.

A CPU is easy to program but is costly and power hungry,” said Danilak. “A GPU is much faster but is very hard to program. A TPU is faster yet but also more limited in application than GPU. Prodigy outperforms all of these to allow for the utilization of idle servers with significantly lower power requirements needed to meet the massive processing requirements of a project like simulating real-time human brain capabilities. I look forward to sharing with attendees at HOT CHIPS how a new approach is needed to overcome the challenges faced by all those in the hyperscale datacenter, HPC and AI markets.”

Tachyum has achieved unprecedented compute performance and power efficiency for Data Center and AI applications to enable a new generation of Supercomputers with the introduction of its Prodigy Universal Processor Chip. Prodigy is the smallest and fastest general purpose, 64-bit processor, requiring 10x less power and reducing server cost by 3x. New proprietary software has made many parts of the hardware found in a typical processor redundant. Shorter wires, due to a smaller core, translates into much greater speed for the processor. The ultra-low power Prodigy processor, will allow system integrators to build a 32 Exaflops AI supercomputer.
