Optical Chip is Faster than GPU

Although a typical GPU setup can solve the Ising problem with ease, now a silicon photonics accelerator can also do the same, but at a speed a hundred times faster. The optical computing startup Lightelligence has demonstrated this feat. The photonic arithmetic computing engine from Lightelligence is an integrated optical computing system, and it is known as Pace. It consists of about twelve thousand photonic devices that run at 1 GHz each. Compared to Comet, the earlier 100-device prototype Read more [...]
