Centaur Technology has been designing high performance x86 processors for over 24 years. Their latest design includes an industry-unique DL coprocessor that achieves high performance with minimum additional silicon cost. In addition to information about the design, Mr. Henry, who did the hardware architecture and implementation of this coprocessor, will provide insight into the important issues and design decisions behind the final architecture choices. Even though this design is running in silicon, no product has been announced; this is a technology description, not a product description.
This is the first public disclosure of the Centaur deep learning technology.
