Semiconductor Company Tachyum Inc. will be participating as a Community Member in the Open Compute Project (OCP), an open consortium aiming to design and enable the delivery of efficient server, storage, and data center hardware for scalable computing.
By joining OCP, Tachyum is able to contribute its expertise to helping redesign existing technology to efficiently support the growing demands of the modern data center.
“Consortiums like OCP are an ideal venue for pursuing common-ground technical guidelines that ensure interoperability and the advancement of IT infrastructure components,” said Dr. Radoslav Danilak, Tachyum founder and CEO. “By joining the OCP Community, we have the opportunity to ensure that Tachyum’s hardware and software solutions are best able to overcome the limitations of traditional IT infrastructures that have hampered organizations’ abilities in regard to performance, power efficiency and cost.”
Tachyum’s Prodigy Universal Processor Chip is the smallest and fastest general purpose, 64-core processor developed to date, requiring 10x less processor power, and reducing processor cost by 3x.
Prodigy will directly enable a 32-Tensor Exaflop supercomputer and allow the building of machines more powerful than the human brain by 2021, years ahead of industry expectations.
Prodigy reduces data center annual TCO (total cost of ownership) by 4x, through its disruptive processor architecture and a smart compiler that has made many parts of the hardware found in typical processors redundant. Fewer transistors, fewer and shorter wires, due to a smaller, simpler core, translates into much greater speed and power efficiency for the Prodigy processor.
