The 10 Coolest AI Chips Of 2021
A look at the 10 coolest AI chips of 2021, which includes processors from semiconductor giants, cloud service providers and chip startups.
Amazon Web Services said it will deliver the “most cost-effective training in the cloud” with Trainium, its new custom-designed AI chip that was made available in new instances in November. The cloud service provider said its new Trainium-powered Trn1 instances provide up to 40 percent lower cost to train deep learning models in comparison to its P4d instances that are powered by Nvidia’s A100 GPUs. The Trn1 instances also provide 800 Gbps in EFA networking bandwidth, double that of GPU-based EC2 instances. In addition, Trn1 instances can be scaled to more than 10,000 Trainium accelerators with petabit-scale networking to provide supercomputer-class performance for uber-fast training of large and complex models.
