Rapidus Corporation, a company involved in the research, development, design, manufacture, and sales of advanced logic semiconductors, today announced an agreement with Tenstorrent Inc., a next-generation computing company building computers for AI, to jointly develop semiconductor IP (design assets) in the field of AI edge devices based on 2 nm logic semiconductors.

In addition to its AI processors and servers, Tenstorrent built and owns the world's most performant RISC-V CPU IP and licenses that technology to its customers around the world. Through this technological partnership with Rapidus, Tenstorrent will accelerate the development of cutting-edge devices to meet the needs of the ever-evolving digital society.




"I am very pleased to be working with Tenstorrent," said Atsuyoshi Koike, President and CEO of Rapidus Inc. "We are both unique startup companies, and I am confident that this collaboration will lead to major innovations based on AI."

"Japan is very important both to Tenstorrent and to me personally," said David Bennett, Chief Customer Officer of Tenstorrent. "We have tremendous momentum with our customers in the Asia Pacific region right now, and I am proud that we can start talking about all the things we are doing in Japan. We are excited about the bold and aggressive moves that Japan is making to take advantage of its legacy of excellence in semiconductor technology and its incredible engineering talent base."

In September of this year, Rapidus began construction of IIM (Innovative Integration for Manufacturing) in Chitose City, Hokkaido. This will be Japan's first facility for the production of state-of-the-art logic semiconductors at 2-nanometers (nm) and beyond. At the same time, Rapidus has been dispatching researchers to the Albany Nanotech Complex in New York, USA, one of the world's most advanced semiconductor research centers, to work with IBM to develop technologies for the production of 2nm logic semiconductors. The company is also planning to acquire EUV lithography technology, which is essential for the production of cutting-edge semiconductors, from imec. Utilizing these technologies, the company plans to start operation of a pilot production line at IIM-1in April 2025, and begin mass production in 2027.

Rapidus will contribute to the enhancement of Japan's industrial strength through the realization of a state-of-the-art LSI foundry, by building cooperative frameworks with domestic and overseas materials and equipment industries, and through international collaborations with IBM, imec, and other partners. In addition, we will actively promote collaboration in the field of intellectual property (IP).

Yeah, Why doesn't anyone made memes of him yet? The guy is practically omnipresent, he's everywhere, all the time working on a different product/problem.

Biography: Keller effortlessly and in his garage created Zen architecture to beat intel for good, and now he's saving the day elsewhere.

Keller is a impressive guy. The K8, X64 and K12.
Keller is a famous one but lot of engineers with serious chops for CPU design all trace back to the DEC Alpha team. They were amazing back then, and they are amazing now. Being talented with passion is timeless.

Apple acquired PA Semi, a startup of lots of engineers who also trace back to DEC Alpha teams.

The Alpha designs had 500MHz CPUs coming out when the latest Intel chips were 200MHz Pentium MMX. Every generation was a breakthrough that kept competitors in the dust. They cancelled the EV8 project because Compaq acquired DEC sometime ago and HP acquired Compaq some time ago, and HP and Intel were idiotically pushing the Itanium. EV8 was supposed to come out in 2004 using a 0.13u process. That's when Pentium 4 "Prescott" and Athlon64s were in the scene.

Few CPUs that would have needed to rival EV8: 65nm, late 2006 Core 2 Duo. 90nm late 2006, Itanium.

There were rumors that they would come out with a multi-core variant and clocking at 4GHz for a successor. Again would have decimated competitors.

Dude don't spout nonsense. There is a major difference in CISC and RISC processors. Don't put them into the same bag.

Way to NOT get the point.

Also, it's not nonsense. DEC Alphas were legendary.

You didn't get the idea why I replied to you. You somehow compare apples and oranges and excel ones clock speed, that is closely tied to the chosen architecture and basically mean nothing here to compare with each other as they have different IPC metrics.
