Tachyum’s First CPUs Are Late, However It Plans 20 ExaFLOPS Supercomputer With Subsequent-Gen CPUs Anyway

Posted on

For 3 years, Tachyum has touted its Prodigy common processor with guarantees that it might be higher than CPUs and GPUs from the likes of AMD, Intel, and Nvidia. Nonetheless, the chip continues to be not in manufacturing regardless that it was initially projected to be in full quantity manufacturing again in 2021. Now it seems like the corporate is wanting forward and touting its Prodigy 2-based supercomputer design that guarantees 20 ExaFLOPS efficiency in 2025 ~ 2026.

Tachyum’s supercomputer design is supposed to ship 20 FP64 vector ExaFLOPS and 10 AI (INT8 or FP8) ZetaFLOPS efficiency inside an influence goal of 60MW in a footprint of 6,000 sq. toes in 2025, the corporate mentioned. The machine will use 64 Prodigy 2-based cupboards and 16 storage racks, however Tachyum did what number of Prodigy 2 processors it might have to ship this a lot efficiency. 

Tachyum additionally mentioned it might construct a supercomputer providing 24.9 FP64 vector ExaFLOPS and 13.27 AI ZettaFLOPS consuming 73.8MW. To place the quantity into context, the upcoming El Capitan supercomputer powered by AMD’s Intuition MI300 datacenter APUs is about to ship round 2 FP64 ExaFLOPS

Final 12 months the U.S. Division of Power expressed curiosity in procuring a 20 ExaFLOPS supercomputer with energy consumption of 20MW-60MW by 2025. Tachyum mentioned it had submitted a proposal to assemble such a system by 2025 however didn’t elaborate on the small print. Because the firm’s unique Prodigy didn’t meet Tachyum’s efficiency objectives (which is why it sued Cadence), it was affordable to imagine the corporate would use its 2nd-Gen Prodigy (which the corporate had talked about earlier than) for the machine.
