INTRODUCING HABANA® GRECO®
2nd-GENERATION INFERENCE PROCESSOR.

COMING SOON

BUILDING ON HABANA’S FIRST-GENERATION INFERENCE ACCELERATOR TECHNOLOGY, GRECO INCREASES PERFORMANCE AND EFFICIENCY WITH A VARIETY OF ADVANCES.

icon-storage

Memory: With 16GB LPDDR5 memories, Greco offers a 5x boost in memory bandwidth relative to Habana’s first-generation inference processor, previously known as Goya, and an increase in on-chip SRAM from 50 to 128 MBs, helping to boost inference performance on all model types.

Compute

Compute: To enable greater inference speed and efficiency targeting computer vision deployments, Greco integrates an independent media engine for managing compressed media natively, supporting media formats HEVC, H.264, JPEG and P-JPEG. In addition, Greco will support new data types, Bfloat 16, FP16, INT8/UINT8, INT4/UINT4, giving customers more alternatives and flexibility in balancing inference speed and accuracy.

Greco comparison

Form factor: Greco form factor is reduced from our first-generation inference processor’s dual-slot PCIe card to single-slot, half-height, half-length (HHHL) PCIe Gen 4 x 8, packing the performance of the full PCIe card format into the compact HHHL to deliver improved compute density and system design efficiency and flexibility.

icon-lower-power

Lower power: Greco significantly reduces power from 200W TDP Goya to 75W TDP, enabling lower cost of operations for inference deployments.

icon-developing

Developing on Greco: Greco is paired with the Habana SynapseAI Software Suite, the Habana Developer Site and Habana GitHub, and features integration of TensorFlow and PyTorch frameworks.
