Intends to Take With New Cloud AI on Nvidia, Intel 100 Processor

Qualcomm on Tuesday introduced a new chip for speeding brains function up, aiming to increase beyond its stronghold into cell phone chips and right into a market.

Qualcomm's new processor is made for exactly what artificial intelligence researchers predict"inference" - the practice of employing an AI algorithm which was"trained" with enormous amounts of information to be able to, by way of instance, translate sound to text-based requests.

Analysts consider for speeding up inference chips is going to be the aspect of their AI chip marketplace.

Nvidia has introduced particular processors for the job and Intel is functioning with Facebook on a single that'll be published later this season.

That action means Qualcomm is currently entering a field behind its rivals.

However, Cristiano Amon, Qualcomm's president and the leader of its processor division, said the San Diego firm is taking another approach by aiming to function as smaller, easier data centers which are proliferating across the globe so that customers may gain from quicker response times due to their internet-connected programs.

To be able to serve those smaller"advantage" data websites, Qualcomm is focusing on AI chips that have small quantities of power and create small heat - a speciality it designed when creating chips for cellular phones, which operate on batteries and reside in pockets.

Rivals like Nvidia and Intel create chips which predominate in data centers that require systems that are elaborate and suck up power.

"That is our wager - performance per watt direction."

Qualcomm attempted before to parlay its chip experience by promoting CPU chips based phone chip technologies into information center sales, as it aimed to compete with Intel's core business. That campaign has been wound down as a step.

"I feel this is a fantastic beginning for Qualcomm, however they've a lot to show at the greater performance accelerator area," said Patrick Moorhead, creator of Moor Insights & Strategy.
