IBM details next-gen POWER 9, will take the fight to Intel’s data center strongholds

IBM details next-gen POWER 9, will take the fight to Intel’s data center strongholds Today, IBM wants to reverse that trend — and it thinks POWER 9 is the chip to do it.Some of the variants will also support IBM’s Centaur memory buffer technology to improve performance and implement an L4 cache.

IBM’s new AI-friendly server adopts Nvidia’s NVLink for faster memory

IBM’s new AI-friendly server adopts Nvidia’s NVLink for faster memory So IBM is also using Nvidia’s proprietary NVLink interconnect technology to address that problem.The S822LC is slated to deliver 21 teraflops of half-precision operations; machine learning typically doesn’t need full or double precision for training neural networks, for example.

New carbon nanotube breakthrough moves them one step closer to mass production

New carbon nanotube breakthrough moves them one step closer to mass production One of the critical problems facing carbon nanotubes is the difficulty of putting them precisely where they’re needed.46 G0, which is seven times higher than previous state-of-the-art CNT array FETs made by other methods.

How neuromorphic ‘brain chips’ will begin the next era in computing

How neuromorphic ‘brain chips’ will begin the next era in computing Part of the reason a digital computer is more efficient than a human being is its transistors can fire with incredible speed — but so can our neurons.Similarly, we will eventually look back at the attempt to do learning operations with digital chips, including GPUs, as inherently unwise or even silly.

IBM, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon form enormous AI partnership

IBM, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon form enormous AI partnership IBM, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Amazon have all signed on as marquis members, though the group hopes to expand even further over time.The goal is to create a body that can provide a platform for discussions among stakeholders and work out best practices for the artificial intelligence industry.

Specialized processors might reignite performance scaling, but they’ll also change the nature of computing forever

Specialized processors might reignite performance scaling, but they’ll also change the nature of computing forever Modern CPU scaling has largely flatlined, thanks to a combination of scaling challenges, intrinsic limits to silicon performance, and a general shift in the market towards lower power devices.To demonstrate, here’s a graph of Apple iPhone single-core CPU performance in Geekbench 2 and Geekbench 3.

Google puts Intel on notice, ‘looks forward’ to using non-Intel chips within its cloud

Google puts Intel on notice, ‘looks forward’ to using non-Intel chips within its cloud Other vendors, like IBM or ARM, have an even smaller market share than AMD.That could change in the next few years, however, and Google has flung its support behind a new interconnect standard, OpenCAPI, and IBM’s POWER9 CPU architecture.

New crowdfunding project promises an ATX motherboard for IBM’s Power8

New crowdfunding project promises an ATX motherboard for IBM’s Power8 A new crowdfunding project seeks to change that, with plans to build a completely open motherboard based around Power8.The hardware itself will support multiple Linux distros, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, CentOS, Debian, and Ubuntu.

IBM claims moving to Mac drastically reduced support calls, operating costs

IBM claims moving to Mac drastically reduced support calls, operating costs “The goal was to deliver a great employee choice program and strive to achieve the best Mac program,” Previn said.The $273 to $543 savings is the expected amount over four years compared with a conventional Windows PC deployment.

Nintendo patent filings suggest the Switch could be hiding some significant features

Nintendo patent filings suggest the Switch could be hiding some significant features Polygon has written an in-depth description of the capabilities of Nintendo’s Switch as described in various patent filings.Patent filings don’t necessarily guarantee certain capabilities will come to the Switch.

IBM, Nvidia release new PowerAI software suite for deep learning projects

IBM, Nvidia release new PowerAI software suite for deep learning projects At some point this year the big buzzword appears to have shifted away from “the cloud” to “deep learning.In similar fashion, everybody who’s anybody is setting machine learning loose on problems — especially the much-beloved process of deep learning.

IBM’s MD steps down from NZTech board, Unitec and Oracle step in

IBM’s MD steps down from NZTech board, Unitec and Oracle step in IBM’s managing director Rob Lee ha steeped down from NZTech board, it was revealed today.Taking up the vacant seats on the board are Oracle New Zealand account executive Eva Sherwood and general manager for Unitec’s industry workforce development Tom Chignell.
