  • 10 DP ExaFLOPS
  • 256 Compute Racks

Tachyum helps create state-of-the-art European Chip Ecosystem

Today, the EU is heavily dependent on non-EU chip suppliers, since it has only 10% of the global fabrication market. Global semiconductors shortages have affected a wide range of sectors from automotive to healthcare.

With Tachyum’s Prodigy family of Universal Processors, Europe can attain technology sovereignty.


IPCEI Important Projects of Common European Interest

Tachyum was selected by the Slovak Republic to participate in the latest submission for the IPCEI to develop Prodigy 2 for HPC/AI. Tachyum IPCEI Project Concept “Accelerating Prodigy 2, an EU Processor” addresses the most fundamental reason for the current IPCEI multi-national program: the dire need for a competitive EU Processor.

A Euro grant will accelerate the second-generation Tachyum Prodigy® processor for HPC/AI in a 3-nanometer fabrication process, which will enable a 1 AI Zettaflop/greater than 10 Double Precision Exaflops computer, to support brain-scale computing.

European Chips Act

European Chips Act

The European Commission has proposed a comprehensive set of measures to ensure the EU strengthens its semiconductor ecosystem, increases its resilience and ensures supply and reduces external dependencies. In total, more than €43 billion of policy-driven investment will support the Chips act until 2030.

Tachyum participated in the CEO Roundtable on Semiconductors organized by the European Commission, that was organized in preparation for the European Chips Act.



The European High Performance Computing Joint Undertaking is a joint initiative between the EU, European countries and private partners to develop a World Class Supercomputing Ecosystem in Europe. Faster and sustainable computation speed for AI is considered critical for advancements in all aspects of human life – from faster drug discovery and vaccine development, to climate change impact assessment, weather forecasting, personalized medicine and more. Solving the world’s problems requires the highest-performance processor available.

With Tachyum’s Prodigy Universal Processor, Slovakia will deliver a ground-breaking product which will have a profound impact on global concerns with an impact on the economy, global security, the environment and mankind’s future.

Strategic Sovereignty

Strategic Sovereignty

The EU consumes 30% of the world’s compute resources but operates only 6% of the global compute resources. As much as 84% of data is processed outside the EU. European AI today is in the hands of other countries, misaligned with EU interests. The EU needs to address this situation for the sake of progress as well as European security.

Tachyum dual-use commercial/government chips will help accomplish this and can put the EU in a leading position in supercomputing and data center markets.
