Nvidia Unveils New Chips For AI
Nvidia, best known for its graphics chips, has launched new processors in a bid to embed its products in the growing market for artificial-intelligence.
The chipmaker, which dominates in video gaming, has rolled out graphics chips for running software for everything from phones to cars to Internet search engines.
The company said its new Tesla P4 chip is for servers used in massive datacentres. Based on its Pascal design, the P4 is claimed to be more than three times as efficient at processing images than its predecessor and 40 times more efficient than Intel server chips, according to Nvidia.
Another new chip, called the P40, is designed for more-powerful single computers, such as supercomputers.
