Fri­day Huawei un­veils range of AI chips

China Daily (USA) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

Huawei Tech­nolo­gies Co Ltd, China’s largest tele­com equip­ment maker and smart­phone ven­dor, un­veiled a range of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence chips in its big­gest-ever push to ex­pand its pres­ence in the semi­con­duc­tor sec­tor and to com­pete with US com­pa­nies such as Nvidia Corp.

The move is also part of Huawei’s broader ef­fort in AI. The com­pany is work­ing to of­fer a full-stack tech­no­log­i­cal port­fo­lio to sup­port all AI ap­pli­ca­tion sce­nar­ios.

Huawei said one of the new pro­ces­sors, known as the As­cend 910, boasts the great­est com­put­ing den­sity in a sin­gle chip in the world, whose per­for­mance can beat its ri­val prod­uct Nvidia V100. As­cend 910 is sched­uled to hit the mar­ket in the sec­ond quar­ter of 2019. And it will be de­ployed on Huawei’s cloud so­lu­tions to drive data cen­ters.
