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 [...]

Low-Power GPU for IoT

The Mali Graphical Processing Units or GPUs from ARM are popular because of their cost efficiency. ARM has optimized them to provide energy efficient, high performance graphics in the smallest possible area of silicon. As a result, not only low- to mid-range smartphones, but also tablets and DTVs are also using Mali cost efficient GPUs as ARM offers a diverse selection of scalable solutions involving both graphics-only and graphics plus GPU Compute technology.

ARM offers the Mali-400MP, which Read more [...]
