Chip Pioneers to Battle it out in Modern RISC-V AI Chips

August 25, 2022

Some chip pioneers from the 1980s are raising the ante in modern chip design with new opportunities provided by artificial intelligence and the open-source RISC-V architecture. Untether AI, which was co-founded by an analog and mixed signal chip pioneer Martin Snelgrove, released a new AI inferencing chip called Boqueria, which has more than 1,400 optimized RISC-V processors. That chip will compete... Read more…

Groq Designs Chip that Hands Over Controls to Software

August 25, 2022

Groq has deconstructed the conventional CPU, and designed its chip in which software takes over control of the chip. The Groq Tensor Streaming Processor Architecture follows a growing trend of software controlling system functions, which has happened in autonomous cars, networking and other hardware. The architecture hands over hardware controls of the chip to the compiler. The chip has integrated... Read more…

End-to-End Support Toward Accelerating Discovery and Innovation with a Converged HPC and AI Supercomputer

A workload-driven system capable of running HPC/AI workloads is more important than ever. Organizations face many challenges when building a system capable of running HPC and AI workloads. There are also many complexities in system design and integration. Building a workload driven solution requires expertise and domain knowledge that organizational staff may not possess.

This paper describes how Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT), a long-time Intel® partner, developed the Taiwania 2 and Taiwania 3 supercomputers to meet the research needs of the Taiwan’s academic, industrial, and enterprise users. The Taiwan National Center for High-Performance Computing (NCHC) selected QCT for their expertise in building HPC/AI supercomputers and providing worldwide end-to-end support for solutions from system design, through integration, benchmarking and installation for end users and system integrators to ensure customer success.
