This week Intel rolled out its new VPU (Vision Processing Unit), Movidius Myriad X, improving end-to-end portfolio of Intel for AI (artificial intelligence) solutions. This will give more independent abilities all over a huge range of product segments, including robotics, drones, virtual reality, and smart cameras.
Intel claims that Myriad X is the first SoC (system on chip) of the world shipping with a devoted Neural Compute Engine for pacing profound learning deductions at the edge. The Neural Compute Engine is a block of hardware present on the chip specially developed to operate profound neural networks at low power and high speed without negotiating accuracy, allowing devices to understand, see, and respond to their situations in real time.
“With the help of Myriad X, we are re-describing what a VPU signifies when it comes to giving as much vision compute and AI power possible, all inside the unique thermal and energy constraints of current untethered gadgets,” General Manager and Vice President of Movidius at Intel New Technology Group, Remi El-Ouazzane, claimed to the media in a statement. With the roll out of the Neural Compute Engine, the new architecture is competent of 1 Trillion operations per second (TOPS) on profound neural network inferences of compute performance.
In addition to this, the company also rolled out its Intel Core 8th Gen processors for a variety of processors for mobile. They are developed for light as well as thin Notebooks and 2-in-1s. The first slot of Intel Core 8th Gen processor-fueled gadgets sporting i7/i5 processors will be seen in market at the start of September. Made for virtual reality (VR) experience and smooth streaming of 4K video, the 8th Gen family will guarantee immersive entertainment, outstanding performance, and simple convenience.
“The new family of mobile sets the bar for exceptional performance, comprising an increase of almost 40% as compared to previous Gen processors,” claimed Gregory Bryant to the media in an interview. Bryant is a General Manager and Senior Vice President of the Client Computing Group at Intel Corporation. In an editorial, Bryant claimed, “This is all thanks to the fresh power-efficient, quad-core configuration, advanced process technology, micro-architecture, and a huge variety of silicon optimizations.”
