The 10 Coolest AI Chips Of 2021 (So Far)
Nvidia may hold the crown in the AI chip market right now, but there are many companies hoping to outgun the GPU juggernaut with new, unique processor architectures. CRN takes a look at the coolest AI chips this year so far, from vendors both small and large.
Ambarella recently announced an expansion of its AI vision system-on-chip portfolio with the new CV52S and CV5S chip families for 4K security cameras. The new SoCs are built using the company’s CVflow architecture and an advanced 5-nanometer manufacturing process, and they can support multiple streams of 4K encoding and advanced AI processing. This is all done in a single low-power design, which the company says “provides industry-leading edge AI SoC performance per watt.” The company is positioning the CV52S for single-sensor security cameras with advanced AI performance that can provide better accuracy in identifying objects and individuals. The CV5S, on the other hand, is meant to security cameras with multiple sensors that provide 360-degree coverage.
