      Are You Ready to Lay Your Hands on the World’s First Universal Processor?

      The wait is almost over and Tachyum has formally launched Prodigy, which is described as “the world’s first universal processor.” The underlying idea is that people are currently using different types of processors to perform different types of tasks — central processing units (CPUs) for general-purpose processing, graphics processing units (GPUs) for graphics and hardware acceleration of algorithms that process large blocks of data in parallel, and AI accelerators for artificial intelligence (AI) applications. What Prodigy does is to unify the functionality of a CPU, GPU, and TPU into a single architecture that’s implemented on a single monolithic device.
