Tachyum Receives Prodigy FPGA DDR-IO Motherboard to Create Full System Emulation

Tachyum Inc. today announced that it has taken delivery of an IO motherboard for its Prodigy Universal Processor hardware emulator from manufacturing. This provides the company with a complete system prototype integrating CPU, memory, PCI Express, networking and BMC management subsystems when connected to the previously announced field-programmable gate array (FPGA) emulation system board.

The Tachyum Prodigy FPGA DDR-IO Board connects to the Prodigy FPGA CPU Board to provide memory and IO connectivity for the FPGA-based CPU tiles. The fully functional Prodigy emulation system is now ready for further build out, including Linux boot and incorporation of additional test chips. It is available to customers to perform early testing and software development prior to a full four-socket reference design motherboard, which is expected to be available Q4 2021.

Tachyum Demo Shows Prodigy Will Be Faster Than NVIDIA and Intel Chips

Tachyum Inc. today announced that it has successfully completed a demonstration showing its Prodigy Universal Processor running faster than any other processor, HPC or AI chips, including ones from NVIDIA and Intel. This is the latest of many recent milestones achieved by Tachyum as the company continues its march towards Prodigy's product release next year.

Tachyum demonstrated how its computational operation and the speed of its product design, using an industry-standard Verilog simulation of the actual Prodigy post layout hardware, is the superior solution to current competitive offerings. Not only does Prodigy execute instructions at very high speeds, but Tachyum now has an infrastructure implemented for automatically checking correct results from the Verilog RTL. These automated tests check Verilog output for correctness compared to Tachyum's C-model, which was used to measure performance, and is now the 'Golden Model' for the Verilog hardware simulation to ensure it produces identical, step-by-step results.

Tachyum Achieves 90 Percent of Silicon Laid for its Prodigy Universal Processor

Semiconductor startup Tachyum Inc. announced today that it has achieved, on schedule, a major milestone in the detailed physical design of its Prodigy Universal Processor. Tachyum now has a complete chip layout, with a verified detailed physical design of more than 90 percent of the design silicon area.

Tachyum's Prodigy is the world's first Universal Processor, combining general-purpose processors, high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI), deep machine learning (ML), explainable AI, bio AI and other AI disciplines within a single chip. This latest milestone achieved integration of key, high-quality Tachyum IP within a multiprocessor environment, and with DDR4/DDR5 DRAM controllers, PCIE 5.0, 112Gb SERDES, USB, GPIO, PLLs and various I/Os. Results of the layout indicate that Prodigy's die size is within product design goals with top-level clocking results that are better than expected.

GALAX Unveils GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR6 Prodigy, EX, and LP Graphics Cards

GALAX unveiled its GeForce GTX 1650 GDDR6 graphics card lineup that includes four SKUs. The same four will be sold under the KFA2 brand in select markets. The lineup includes the standard GALAX GTX 1650 GDDR6 and its factory-overclocked EX-OC variant; a low-profile LP model, and the GTX 1650 Prodigy, targeted at gaming i-cafes. The standard GALAX GTX 1650 GDDR6 and its EX-OC variant feature an aluminium monoblock heatsink that's ventilated by a pair of 80 mm fans. The standard variant is clocked at NVIDIA-reference clock speeds of 1590 MHz GPU Boost. The EX-OC variant is clocked a notch higher at 1605 MHz GPU Boost. Both cards come with software-based "1-click OC" modes.

Next up is the GALAX GTX 1650 GDDR6 Prodigy, a cost-effective graphics card designed for gaming i-cafes. This card features a simple aluminium fan-heatsink with radially-projecting fins (similar to Intel stock CPU coolers); ventilated by a single 80 mm fan. The card ticks at NVIDIA-reference clock speeds of 1590 MHz GPU Boost. Lastly, there's the GTX 1650 GDDR6 LP, which as the name might suggest, is a half-height (low-profile) graphics card targeted at SFF or HTPC builds. The card features a chunky 2-slot thick monoblock aluminium heatsink that's ventilated by a pair of 40 mm fans. All four cards run their GDDR6 memory at 12 Gbps, and feature a common set of display connectors: one each of dual-link DVI-D, HDMI 2.0b, and DisplayPort 1.4.

Xigmatek Intros Prodigy ST1266 CPU Cooler

Xigmatek today introduced the Prodigy ST1266 low-profile CPU cooler. With an overall height (including fan) of 67 mm, the cooler is capable of handling thermal loads of up to 150W, making it fit for some of the higher-end mainstream desktop CPUs, such as the Core i7-8700K and the Ryzen 7 1800X. It supports sockets LGA2066, LGA2011(v3), LGA115x, AM4, AM3(+), and FM2(+). Its design involves a conventional C-type, top-flow layout. The cooler measures126 mm x 120 mm x 67 mm.

Six 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes make direct contact with the CPU at the base, which doubles up as a small aluminium mono-block heatsink. The heat-pipes convey heat to a thin aluminium fin-stack that propagates along the plane of the motherboard, which is ventilated by a 15 mm-thick 120 mm fan, which takes in 4-pin PWM input, spins between 800 to 1,500 RPM, pushing up to 56.9 CFM of air, with a maximum noise-level of 22.4 dBA. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Logitech's New Addition to Their Gaming Mice Line-up - The G203 Prodigy

In another addition to their gaming mice product range, Logitech has gone and left behind the complex, sometimes overly contoured designs of recent gaming mice in developing their new G203 Prodigy. The G203 does present a design that is closer to a neutral one, with no particular ergonomics considerations for either a left-handed or right-handed person (save for the pair of left-side thumb buttons). This thus increases the overall number of users whose natural hand posture may allow them to use this gaming mouse with more comfort, though it does mean the mouse makes some sacrifices in overall ergonomics.
