Not only it is going to be the fastest processor ever, but the maximum power consumption of the chip is 310W, which is much lower than (350W). The company also announced that they are going to continue investing in AI processors to deliver entirely sufficient, affordable, and powerful computing that provides incredible performance on-vehicle computing, edge computing for autonomous driving and training, etc.

Across all devices and platforms, it provides excellent performance and co-operation. Moreover, its “AI Algorithm As Code” design concept helps the developers in creating smart applications more quickly with easy training. As per the business benefits, it provides 50 percent more efficient than the leading frameworks on the market.

MindSpore will go open source in the first quarter of 2020. We want to drive broader AI adoption and help developers do what they do best.“: said Xu towards Huawei’s commitment.
