NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) CEO Jensen Huang says the upcoming Volta GPU will have higher performance than the latest Google TPU.
Graphics chip maker Nvidia on Wednesday responded to a threat from Alphabet’s latest efforts to use its own chip for artificial intelligence workloads. That effort could eventually blunt Nvidia’s growth, which is being driven by companies using Nvidia’s chips for AI processing.
NVIDIA Corporation(NASDAQ:NVDA) stock fell last week after Google declared the second-generation TPU, its most competitive processor, but it has since rebounded.
In a blog post Wednesday, NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ:NVDA) CEO Jensen Huang emphasized that his company has an ongoing collaboration with Google, while also indirectly belittling part of Google’s tensor processing unit initiative. Additionally, Nvidia announced plans to release certain AI software under an open-source license.
“We want to see the fastest possible adoption of AI everywhere. No one else needs to invest in building an inferencing TPU [what Google is doing]. We have one for free — designed by some of the best chip designers in the world.”
Google unveiled its first-generation TPU last year, although it was only meant for inference, a word describing the second phase of deep learning. The second version announced last week can handle training, the first phase, as well as inference, making its TPUs more of a threat to Nvidia’s GPUs. Source: CNBC
