Tachyum Processor to power 2021 AI/HPC Supercomputer

Today semiconductor company Tachyum announced today that its Prodigy Processor AI/HPC Reference Design will be used in a supercomputer at an unnamed customer site in 2021. According to the company, the Prodigy processor slated for 2021 delivery “handily outperforms the fastest processors while consuming one-tenth the electrical power, and it is one-third the cost and outperforms GPUs and TPUs on neural net training and inference workloads.”

New Tachyum Prodigy Chip has “More than 10x the Performance of Conventional Processors per Watt”

Today Silicon Valley startup Tachyum Inc. unveiled its new processor family – codenamed “Prodigy” – that combines the advantages of CPUs with GP-GPUs, and specialized AI chips in a single universal processor platform. According to Tachyum, the new chip has “ten times the processing power per watt” and is capable of running the world’s most complex compute tasks. “With its disruptive architecture, Prodigy will enable a super-computational system for real-time full capacity human brain neural network simulation by 2020.”
