Sometimes, the laws of physics can be so annoying, and AI is a case in point. There is a theoretical, experimentally verified upper limit on how many computations can be processed per kilowatt-hour. It’s called Landauer’s Principle: more processing generates more heat. Thus, compute-intensive AI is a veritable furnace within the data center, and there’s only so much that ... Full article

Chiplet-based designs, so called because they combine multiple components into a single package, are increasingly seen as addressing the inability of general-purpose CPUs to handle skyrocketing performance requirements. Lower-cost chiplets have helped address the need for workload-specific accelerators, proponents note. Those workload requirements prompted the Open Compute Project (OCP) to launch a chiplet design project in March 2019 aimed ... Full article
