SEOUL, Sept. 24 (Korea Bizwire) — Korean startup Furiosa AI said Thursday that its first silicon chip Warboy has surpassed a similar Nvidia chip on the MLPerf’s inference benchmark scores.
MLPerf is a global annual artificial intelligence (AI) semiconductor benchmark event hosted by Google, Microsoft, Facebook and other leading businesses and research institutions.
Furiosa AI was the only startup to submit performance results of its originally designed silicon chip in MLPerf’s inference section.
MLPerf benchmark scores showed that Furiosa AI outpaced U.S. tech giant’s T4 in both ResNet-50 and SSD-small single stream performance.
Warboy also demonstrated an equivalent level of performance with Nvidia’s A100, the company’s newest flagship product.
“Warboy is four times better than Nvidia’s T4 and supports more than 300 AI models,” Furiosa AI said.
The company plans to introduce a semiconductor that supports hyper artificial intelligence including computer vision, natural language processing and algorithm recommendation by 2023.
