Pure-AI processing is here

To meet the ever-increasing demand for
AI workloads, the industry needs a new kind
of processing.
Legacy CPU and converted-GPU
architectures are not delivering the
required performance.
Introducing the first purpose-built AI
processing, ready for production today.

One processor doesn't fit all

To optimize efficiency, Habana offers separate processors for training and inference workloads.
The inference processor supports models trained
by any processor (GPU, TPU, CPU,
and Habana Gaudi).

TrainingHL-2000 will be sampling in Q2-2019
Training performance linearly scalable to thousands
of devices
2 Terabit/second interconnect bandwidth per device
Seamless integration
with software frameworks

Habana’s seamless integration with popular
frameworks and ONNX exchange format allows
developers
to quickly use complex AI resources
without having to be experts.

For power users looking for further
customization
and optimization, Habana offers rich
Software Development Tools and a Neural
Network Profiler.
