Why Hardware Acceleration Is The Next Battleground In Processor Design

In this special guest feature, Theodore Omtzigt from Stillwater Supercomputing writes that as workloads specialize due to scale, hardware accelerated solutions will continue to be cheaper than approaches that utilize general purpose components. “If you’re a CIO who manages integrations of third-party hardware and software, be aware of new hardware acceleration technologies that can reduce the cost of service delivery by orders of magnitude.”

Radio Free HPC Looks at the coming wave of 40+ Different AI Chips

In this podcast, the Radio Free HPC Team asks, “What are we going to do with 40+ AI chips?” One such chip, Graphcore, is touted as “the most complex processor” ever at some 20 billion transistors. The VC-backed company out of Bristol, UK is also valued on paper at $1.7b, gaining it the coveted “unicorn” status, apparently the “only western semi-conductor unicorn.”
