SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tachyum Inc. has been named one of the “50 Innovative Companies to Watch 2019” by The Silicon Review, the world’s most trusted online and print community for business and technology professionals.
The Silicon Review’s 50 Innovative Companies to Watch honor is awarded to companies that provide the most groundbreaking technologies contributing to the competitive global IT platform at large. Tachyum was selected by the Silicon Review team for inclusion based on the expectation that the company will unlock unprecedented performance, power efficiency, and cost advantages to solve the most complex problems in Big Data analytics, deep learning, mobile and large-scale computing.
The company will achieve this goal behind its Prodigy Universal Processor Chip, the smallest and fastest general purpose, 64-core processor developed to date, requiring 10x less processor power, and reducing processor cost by 3x. Prodigy will directly enable a 32-Tensor Exaflop supercomputer and allow the building of machines more powerful than the human brain by 2021, years ahead of industry expectations. Prodigy reduces data center TCO (annual total cost of ownership) by 4x, through its disruptive processor architecture and a smart compiler that has made many parts of the hardware found in typical processors redundant. Fewer transistors, fewer and shorter wires, due to a smaller, simpler core, translates into much greater speed and power efficiency for the Prodigy processor.
“We are pleased to have earned the recognition of being recognized among the most innovative companies to watch by The Silicon Review,” said Dr. Radoslav Danilak, CEO of Tachyum. “Our entire team has worked diligently to develop a disruptive processor architecture that will deliver ultra-high performance and ultra-low power operation across all disciplines of computing, including public and private cloud data center, AI, HPC, 5G enabled workloads, smart cities, autonomous systems and edge computing workloads. By addressing the major global challenges of improving processor performance, which has remained constant for nearly a decade, and decreasing data center power consumption, we are proving to be an innovative force in the industry for years to come.”

Named for the Greek prefix “tachy,” meaning speed, combined with the suffix “-um,” indicating an element (e.g. lithium), Tachyum is meant to evoke the notion of “an element of speed”. Tachyum emerged from stealth mode in 2017 to engineer disruptive intelligent information processing products. Tachyum’s founders have a track record of solving problems caused by device physics in semiconductors, to deliver transformational products to global markets, and are backed by IPM Growth, the Central & Eastern European venture capital platform, as Tachyum’s lead investor.
