Tachyum Presents Prodigy Universal Processor Value Proposition at ISC 2021


LAS VEGAS – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) –Tachyum today announced its return to the ISC High Performance conference with an in-depth review of the progress in the development of its Prodigy universal processor as part of the company’s digital exhibition at the event from June 24 to July 2 .

Dr Radoslav Danilak, Founder and CEO of Tachyum, gave detailed information on the architecture, performance and benchmark design of the first universal processor at ISC’s inaugural online event last year. At ISC 2021 Digital, Tachyum will host presentations highlighting key accomplishments achieved over the past year – including improvements achieved through the successful transition to a 5nm feature size and delivery of a Fully functional FPGA emulation server system – along with Prodigy’s unique value proposition within the HPC and AI industries, such as performance, total cost of ownership and software composability.

Prodigy has the potential to create unmatched compute speed and enormous power saving capabilities for hyperscale, OEM, telco, private cloud and government markets. Prodigy’s 10 times lower CPU core power consumption will dramatically reduce the carbon emissions associated with data center use. Prodigy’s 3X lower cost (at equivalent performance) will also translate into billions of dollars in annual savings for hyperscalers like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Alibaba. An HPC cluster using Prodigy is being deployed within the EU as part of the NSCC Slovakia supercomputer project with a baseline design expected in the first half of 2022 before becoming fully operational later in the year.

Tachyum’s Prodigy processor can run HPC applications, convolutional AI, explainable AI, general AI, bio AI, and spiked neural networks, as well as normal data center workloads, on a single platform – homogeneous processor shape, using existing standard programming models. Without Prodigy, hyperscale data centers must use a combination of CPU, GPU, TPU hardware for these different workloads, creating inefficiency, expense and complexity of separate procurement and maintenance infrastructures. Using specific hardware dedicated to each type of workload (eg, data center, AI, HPC) results in underutilization of hardware resources and more difficult programming, support, and maintenance. Prodigy’s ability to seamlessly switch between these different workloads dramatically changes the competitive landscape and the economics of data centers.

“I look forward to returning to the ISC High Performance conference to share with attendees the tremendous progress we have made in our continued development of the Prodigy universal processor chip,” Danilak said. “With the growth of the HPC and AI markets and the issues and challenges these segments face around the world, there is an increased need for a solution that dramatically improves data center performance, density and power consumption. . Prodigy is that solution and delivers cascading benefits for the critical workloads of tomorrow.

ISC High Performance 2021 brings together a community dedicated to the continuous improvement of technologies and products that will help drive the future. Through HPC, these people will create applications that promise not only to push the boundaries of scientific knowledge, but also to help solve some of society’s most pressing problems.

About Tachyum

Tachyum is disrupting the data center, HPC and AI markets by delivering the world’s first universal processor, with industry-leading performance, cost and power, across all three compute domains, while enabling data centers to data to exceed the capacity of the human brain. Tachyum, co-founded by Dr Radoslav Danilak, and its flagship Prodigy, begin high-throughput production in 2021, with software emulations and an FPGA-based emulator available to early adopters. He is targeting a $ 50 billion market, growing at 20% per year. With data centers currently consuming more than 3% of the planet’s electricity, and expected to reach 10% by 2025, the ultra-low power Prodigy universal processor is essential if we are to continue to double the power. global data center capacity every four years. Tachyum is one of the founding members of I4DI (Innovations for Digital Infrastructure), which will build the world’s fastest AI supercomputer in Slovakia, starring Prodigy. Tachyum has offices in USA and Slovakia, EU. For more information visit https://www.tachyum.com/.
