Deep Learning Chip Upstart Takes GPUs to Task

August 8, 2016 Nicole Hemsoth Bringing a new chip to market is no simple or cheap task, but as a new wave of specialized processors for targeted workloads brings fresh startup tales to bear, we are reminded again how risky such a business can be. Of course, with high risk comes potential for great reward, that is, if a company is producing a chip that far outpaces general purpose processors for workloads that are high enough in number to validate the cost of design and production. The stand-by figure there is usually stated at around $50 million, but that is assuming a chip requires validation, testing, and configuration rounds to prove its ready to be plugged into a diverse array of systems. Of course, if one chooses to create and…
