Chinese chipmaker launches 14nm AI processor that's 90% cheaper than GPUs

>Aiming at the high-end hardware that dominates the AI market and has caused China-specific GPU bans by the US, Chinese manufacturer Intellifusion is introducing "DeepEyes" AI boxes with touted AI performance of 48 TOPS for 1000 yuan, or roughly $140. Using an older 14mn node and (most likely) an ASIC is another way for China to sidestep sanctions and remain competitive in the AI market.

>For your reference, to meet Microsoft's stated requirements of an "AI PC," modern PCs must have at least 40 TOPS of NPU performance. So, Intellifusion's immediate trajectory seems like it should soon be suitable for many AI workloads, especially considering most existing NPUs are only as fast as 16 TOPS. However, Snapdragon's X Elite chips are set to boast 40 TOPS alongside industry-leading iGPU performance later this year.

>As Dr. Chen Ning, chairman of Intellifusion, posted, "In the next three years, 80% of companies around the world will use large models. [...] The cost of training a large model is in the tens of millions, and the price of mainstream all-in-one training and pushing machines is generally one million yuan. Most companies cannot afford such costs."

      I think you can only pre-order for now.

        You can pre-order Chinese real-estate before it’s built as well.

          That would also be an indictment for the US though

            The US doesn’t pre-order real estate loony chang.
            The money is held in escrow until the project is finished, unlike chyna where the developer is free to run off with your money as soon as it’s suckered out of your hands.

              Yeah. Buying "in the plant" doesn't exist in the US. Also the global financial crisis just happened because someone typed the wrong numba in the computah. It had nothing to do with fictional assets.

            unlike Muskrat, chinamen actually released complete functional chips that are being used in Huawei phones, which was best selling in chinkland last year.

      14nm, ancient? No, that threatens our economic and military edge (free market lover btw, USA, USA, USA!). 28nm might be more suitable. It's not like 40nm tech is regularly used in noncivilian applications, anyway.
      Yes, I think even DUV is too much. Perhaps if we threaten the Netherlands again so they wisely see our logic, which is laid out with "lose out, or LOSE out" we will maintain that "competitive" edge. It's not like those copycats do innovation. They're just like the Soviets. Literally no innovation, just copyright and IP theft from our innovative market partners. The free market just never stops being a raging success.
      t. typed from my office because those damn seawalls aren't high enough and I can't go see the Cherry trees today because they're inundated. Thankfully, we can just build bigger seawalls as our ingenuity overcomes all nature throws at us.

      What would we do without the free market to fix these things? They just solve problems.

    NPUs are marketing wank, discrete NVIDIA GPUs or even fricking AMD/Intel ones are far faster than that.

      The point of NPUs is energy efficiency, not pure power, that's why only Lunar Lake will get the new NPU and Arrow Lake will keep the old one
