The company has announced a pair of new seagulls – one air cooled, the other liquid. Tachyum announces that according to current measurements, the Prodigy chip is even more powerful than originally expected. The company has announced a pair of new seagulls – one conventionally cooled by air, the other using liquid. It also wants to offer these solutions to Slovakia for its upcoming supercomputer. Thanks to significantly higher performance compared to consumption and price, this machine has to significantly surpass the current and upcoming world leaders. Samples of the final chips will be available at the end of the year, with mass production currently expected in the first half of 2023. The Slovak-American company Tachyum reports in a press release that its Prodigy chip exceeded its original conservative targets and The company also announced two rack reference designs – the weaker relies on standard air cooling, the more powerful it is liquid cooled. Both announced rack solutions are expected to offer significant Total Cost of Ownership savings in the cloud, Artificial Intelligence and supercomputers, Tachyum said in a press release. It is said to be many times more powerful. The conventional model carries 24 quad-processor 2U servers, so there are a total of 96 unspecified Prodigy chips. The company only states that these are “middle class” processors. However, the company added several numbers compared to the competition. This solution is said to offer up to 6.5 times higher performance for High Performance Computing (HPC) applications and 12.6 times higher performance for AI applications with up to 16 times higher performance / TCO than an NVIDIA H100 DGX POD rack comprising four H100 DGX and 32 SMX H100 blocks of the latest Hopper architecture. Comparison of Tachyum seagulls with a competitive solution from Nvidia. Source: Tachyum The Prodigy liquid-cooled rack carries 36 quad-processor 1U servers, ie 144 top-class Prodigy chips. In this case, performance for HPC applications should jump up to 13.5- and 27-fold for AI applications compared to the Nvidia system. Compared to the H100 SMX, it further delivers up to 13 times more power at more than 10 times lower TCO. They claim that they want to overcome the world’s top Tachyum is bidding for the possibility of supplying their chips to the upcoming Slovak supercomputer Perún. In his eventually, the company originally designed AI performance at the level of 64 exaflops. However, the current press release already mentions a double number: “An updated system with 128 exaflops of computing power for artificial intelligence will provide double AI performance for the same amount (70 million euros), which will double AI training and inference at no additional cost,” it says. statement. Read also We could get much more than 70 million for a supercomputer, there are … The future Slovak supercomputer built on the Prodigy platform is to offer the following parameters: 128 exaflops AI power, 500 petaflops HPC double-precision power, power consumption 9 megawatts, more than 1.6 petabytes of DRAM, 100 petabytes of disk space. If an air-cooled solution were used in this case, 107 computer node racks would be needed. In the case of a liquid-cooled platform, Tachyum counts on 48 seagulls. In both cases, the company also talks about 10 racks for storage. The upcoming Slovak supercomputer built on Prodigy chips should be up to seven times more powerful in the field of artificial intelligence than the Nvidia Eos supercomputer with the expected AI performance of 18.4 exaflop, announced in March. Currently, the most powerful Japanese supercomputer Fugaku is to be surpassed by the Slovak 25 times. They offer the state an upgrade for 55 million The company also talks about the possibility of an upgrade worth an additional 55 million euros. This improved system is to extend to one exaflop in Double Precision calculations and 256 exaflops in AI. So Tachyum claims that for 125 million euros, Slovakia can build a supercomputer that will beat any other supercomputer in the world – including those that cost many hundreds of millions. For example, the development of the currently most powerful computer (Japanese Fugaku) ​​cost just over a billion dollars. The American supercomputers Aurora or El Capitan, one of which should win the title of the most powerful supercomputer this year, respectively, are to cost around $ 500 to 600 million. Not together, every single one. Read also The Slovak-American company Tachyum has finally presented the details of the Prodigy chip, … Extreme numbers But the possibilities of the Prodigy architecture do not end there. “The future deployment of a modular supercomputer on the first-generation Tachyum Prodigy platform is scalable up to four DP exaflops and one AI zetaflop. All this at a consumption of less than 70 megawatts and at a cost of 500 million euros, “the press release said. Recall, however, that the final version of the Prodigy chip is still not mass produced. Tachyum announces the first samples at the end of this year, while it is currently planning to start mass production in the first half of 2023. The figures presented in the materials are currently based on simulations and tests performed on FPGA prototypes. So far, these are just words. Despite very ambitious statements, there are no independent measurements or reports yet to support Tachyum’s claims. As the chip is not yet finalized, all performance and other data are only derived from simulations – whether purely software or using FPGA prototypes, which the company has been testing gradually since the middle of last year.
