LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tachyum™ launched a German-language version of its website to improve accessibility for customers and partners seeking information about the Tachyum Prodigy® Universal Processor and its ability to dramatically improve the performance of hyperscale, HPC and AI workloads. Tachyum, a semiconductor company with roots in Europe, is essential for EU digital and technological sovereignty.
Today, the European Union is heavily dependent on non-European chip suppliers as it only has 10% of the global manufacturing market. Global semiconductor shortages have affected a wide range of sectors, from automotive to healthcare. Tachyum’s Prodigy, the world’s first universal processor, will help EU achieve a leading position in technology, supercomputing and data center markets.
With organizations like the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, which contributes strongly to the European semiconductor research strategy, Germany plays an important role in the technological sovereignty of the EU. Other German-speaking regions of Europe are home to major supercomputing centers, such as the Jülich Supercomputing Center (which recently signed a memorandum of understanding with Tachyum), the Swiss National Center for Supercomputing (CSCS), the Leibniz Supercomputing Center (Leibniz-Rechenzentrum) and the Max-Planck Computing and Data Facility (MPCDF), and the High-Performance Computing Center Stuttgart (HLRS – Höchstleistungsrechenzentrum Stuttgart) or Karlsruher Institut of Technology (KIT).
Germany is also a leader in the automotive industry, and a recently approved law on autonomous driving gives automakers in the country the chance to start designing self-driving cars in earnest. These vehicles need powerful AI systems, which Tachyum can activate. Using Prodigy in autonomous vehicles gives the EU the chance to challenge other global industry leaders, such as Tesla.
“At the heart of our business philosophy has always been the concept of thinking globally, acting locally,” said Dr. Radoslav Danilak, Founder and CEO of Tachyum. “By launching another regionalized version of our website, we are staying true to this concept by ensuring that our messaging reaches people in ways that promote greater understanding while also targeting localized markets that can benefit from the energy and performance capabilities of Prodigy.”
Prodigy has the potential to create unparalleled computing speed and vast power-saving capabilities for large-scale, OEM, telecommunications, private cloud, and government markets. Prodigy’s 10x lower CPU core power consumption will significantly reduce carbon emissions associated with data center usage. 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.
Tachyum’s Prodigy processor can run HPC, convolutional AI, explainable AI, general AI, bio AI, and edge neural network applications, as well as normal data center workloads, on a single homogeneous processor platform, using existing standard programming models. Without Prodigy, hyperscale data centers must use a disparate mix of CPU, GPU, and TPU hardware for these different workloads, creating inefficiency, expense, and the complexity of separate provisioning and maintenance infrastructures. Using specific hardware dedicated to each type of workload (e.g. data center, AI, HPC) results in underutilization of hardware resources and more difficult programming, support, and maintenance. Prodigy’s ability to switch seamlessly between these different workloads is dramatically changing the competitive landscape and data center economics.
The German version of the Tachyum website is hosted on the company’s own software emulation system for the Prodigy universal processor and is now available at https://www.tachyum.com/de/.
Tachyum is transforming the AI, HPC, and public and private cloud data center markets with Prodigy, the world’s first universal processor that delivers industry-leading performance, cost, and power efficiency for purpose and purpose computing general. When Prodigy processors are delivered in a large-scale data center, they enable all AI, HPC, and general-purpose applications to run on hardware infrastructure, saving businesses billions of dollars. dollars per year. A fully functional Prodigy emulation system is currently available to select customers and partners for early testing and software development. With data centers currently consuming more than 3% of the planet’s electricity, up from 10% by 2025, the ultra-low-power Prodigy Universal Processor is essential if we are to continue doubling global data center capacity every four years. Tachyum, co-founded by Dr. Radoslav Danilak with its flagship product Prodigy, is heading for tape release and chip sampling in 2022, with software emulations and an FPGA-based emulator running native Linux available for early adopters . The company is building the world’s fastest 64 exaflops AI supercomputer in 2022 in the EU with Prodigy chips. Tachyum has offices in the United States and Slovakia.
