Intel New Chips Lack Potent GPU

Intel New Chips Lack Potent GPU

Intel along with every other tech company on the planet is gearing up their chip development in the quest for artificial intelligence. The company is betting heavily that the new chip technology will have mass appeal and world wide applications. On Thursday Intel announced that they will be developing new chips that can handle A.I. level workloads with the end game being A.I. however for the time being the chips will be released as specialized co-processors or primary chips in computers which will be completely separate from the major product lines. The thinking is that over time Intel will be able to further adapt and integrate these chips with A.I. features into everything from mainstream servers to PC chips and IoT. Due to the weakening PC market, Intel is aggressively pursuing other sectors in order to diversify.

Intel plans to offer non-GPU chips to accelerate their entry into the A.I market due to their own late entry into the mobile market but since A.I. computing is dominated by GPUs Intel is at a severe disadvantage due to their lack of a potent GPU to accommodate the A.I. demands. The company believes it does not need a GPU to compete and hopes the alternative chips like the monster A.I. chip codenamed Knights Mill will accomplish that. Targeted at deep learning and estimated to be four times faster in deep-learning tasks than the current Xeon Phi chips, Intel is confident they are well-positioned to tackle the challenges ahead in the A.I. market.
