Google makes major leap forward with new Tensor Processing Unit

Accelerator will move Moore’s Law forward by seven years On Wednesday at Google’s annual I/O developer conference in Mountain View, California, the company went forward and announced a revolutionary new processing accelerator unit for machine learning that is now expected to move a recently-slowing Moore’s Law forward by at least three chip generations, or seven years. Image credit: VentureBeat.com Google says its new Tensor Processing Unit, or TPU, is capable of delivering an order of magnitude higher performance-per-watt “than all commercially available GPUs and FPGAs.” The new accelerator unit is specifically built and custom designed for machine learning tasks. In fact, Google engineer Norm Jouppi says in a company blog post that the TPU accelerators have been running in company datacenters for more than a year, with at least one…
