IBM has introduced Telum chips aimed at accelerating machine learning models. With the help of chips, it will be possible to perform tasks such as ultra-fast processing of bank transactions and automatic fraud detection in real time.
The chip contains 8 processor cores with deep superscalar extraordinary execution of machine instructions. The processor clock frequency exceeds 5 GHz. The caching infrastructure developed from scratch provides 32 MB of cache memory per core and supports scaling up to 32 Telum chips. The design of the two-chip module contains 22 billion transistors and 27 km of inter-element connections on 17 metal layers.
The processor is intended for use by corporations that carry out financial transactions with customers: banks, retail chains and insurance companies. The chip allows you to process transactions in a streaming mode and detect fraud cases.
The chip is built on the basis of a 7-nm EUV process technology developed by Samsung. The demonstration of the first device using Telum is scheduled for the first half of 2022.
