In September last year, Intel acquired the California company Movidius, which since 2005 has been developing specialized processors for deep machine learning and computer vision. At that time, engineers Movidius developed the Myriad 2 processor, which was installed in drones, security systems and other devices for tracking and recognition of objects. Having acquired the company, Intel got an impressive package of patents and technologies in its hands. And the new processor
The Myriad X processor for the first time includes a "neural computing engine" (Neural Compute Engine). From the name it becomes immediately clear that the chip is based on the technology of deep machine learning. In the event that Intel succeeds in bringing its processor to the market, many companies will begin installing it in drones, smart cameras and robots. In other words, in those devices that are supposed to be trained in real time in the process of observing the surrounding world.
The size of the processor is impressive – it is not bigger than a small coin. This will allow you to install it even in very compact gadgets. In terms of power Myriad X is also very good: it is able to perform more than 4 trillion operations per second (4 TOPS). The previous processor model was only capable of 1-1,5 TOPS. According to Intel, Myriad X also provides 10 times more performance for simultaneous learning of several neural networks.
