Tachyum Has Disclosed 1U and 2U Server/HPC/AI Reference Designs

LAS VEGAS, March 5, 2024 – Tachyum® today announced that it is bringing 1U and 2U platform solutions to market behind a strategy that ensures customers and partners will be able to quickly and easily test, benchmark and deploy Prodigy® solutions across a broad range of supported applications and workloads.

Tachyum’s platform strategy includes offering evaluation platforms for early testing with OEMs and ODMs able to incorporate Prodigy into their own designs. The 2U evaluation platform, optimized to address the high-performance needs of HPC and Big AI, will be the first to sample in Q1 of 2025. The 1U platform, targeting applications such as AI inference and a wide range of cloud applications, follows in the second quarter.

Tachyum has chosen Chenbro as the chassis partner for the Prodigy evaluation platforms. Chenbro’s standard chassis products provide solutions for both 1U and 2U that address Prodigy’s high-performance requirements, allowing Tachyum to focus on the device and motherboard development. Both platforms will use the same 2-socket motherboard supporting 32 DDR5 DIMMs, as well as supporting storage integration for 16 E1.S SSDs. The evaluation platforms will initially launch as air-cooled infrastructures, allowing for fast, easy evaluations, with a 4-socket liquid-cooled platform arriving later.

Chenbro’s 1U and 2U chassis complement Tachyum’s Prodigy, ensuring seamless integration and unmatched performance. Prodigy promises unparalleled efficiency and scalability, reshaping computing landscapes. “We’re excited to partner with Tachyum,” says Eric Hui, President of Chenbro. “Our chassis solutions, coupled with Prodigy’s innovation, will drive new standards in AI and HPC.”

“Chenbro’s quality aligns with our mission to revolutionize computing. Together, we’re set to redefine computational boundaries,” said Dr. Radoslav Danilak, founder and CEO of Tachyum. “As we achieve success at the system level, it is imperative that we prepare to progress to conquering other elements of the data center. We are not just a chip company but an innovator in revolutionizing the entire data center for those seeking better performance in hyperscale, cloud and AI environments. We are well positioned to continue on this quest through the creation of advanced motherboard designs complete with all the critical components.”

As a Universal Processor offering industry-leading performance for all workloads, Prodigy-powered data center servers can seamlessly and dynamically switch between computational domains (such as AI/ML, HPC, and cloud) with a single homogeneous architecture. By eliminating the need for expensive dedicated AI hardware and dramatically increasing server utilization, Prodigy reduces CAPEX and OPEX significantly while delivering unprecedented data center performance, power, and economics. Prodigy integrates 192 high-performance custom-designed 64-bit compute cores, to deliver up to 4.5x the performance of the highest-performing x86 processors for cloud workloads, up to 3x that of the highest performing GPU for HPC, and 6x for AI applications.

Details of Tachyum’s data center strategy in delivering 1U and 2U platforms to market can be found in the company’s latest white paper, “Tachyum’s Prodigy Evolves to Next Level: 1U/2U Solutions for Data Centers”.

About Tachyum

Tachyum is transforming the economics of AI, HPC, public and private cloud workloads with Prodigy, the world’s first Universal Processor. Prodigy unifies the functionality of a CPU, a GPU, and a TPU in a single processor to deliver industry-leading performance, cost and power efficiency for both specialty and general-purpose computing. As global data center emissions continue to contribute to a changing climate, with projections of their consuming 10 percent of the world’s electricity by 2030, the ultra-low power Prodigy is positioned to help balance the world’s appetite for computing at a lower environmental cost. Tachyum recently received a major purchase order from a US company to build a large-scale system that can deliver more than 50 exaflops performance, which will exponentially exceed the computational capabilities of the fastest inference or generative AI supercomputers available anywhere in the world today. When complete in 2025, the Prodigy-powered system will deliver a 25x multiplier vs. the world’s fastest conventional supercomputer – built just this year – and will achieve AI capabilities 25,000x larger than models for ChatGPT4. Tachyum has offices in the United States and Slovakia. For more information, visit
