雖然在伺服器 AI 領域,高通還是首度跨入,不過高通以長年行動運算培育的低功耗、先進訊號處理技術、先進製程與 Snapdragon 產業規模化作為後盾,將相關 AI 技術從終端帶到雲端

當前業界雖積極探討 AI 在終端設備的邊際運算,然而許多服務如語音助理,線上自動化服務,工業自動化,城市安全等,仍仰賴基於雲的 AI 服務,全球的服務商也陸續為伺服器系統導入 AI 技術,為了達到更好的效率, AI 加速器技術也成為服務商所看好的硬體技術。

高通 Cloud AI 100 是一款 AI 加速器產品,高通強調,在 AI 的應用,傳統通用運算的 CPU 效率並不理想,透過 GPU 與 FPGA 的異構加速運算則具 CPU 10 倍性能,然而,針對 AI 運算最佳化的 AI 加速器則有著異構運算的 10 倍以上,這也是高通此次以 Cloud AI 100 加速器跨入市場的關鍵。

若回顧去年底高通發表 Snapdragon 855 時,高通在 Hexagon 690 DSP 中首度導入矢量加速器建構第四代 AIE 平台,也因此大幅提升 Snapdragon 855 的 AI 性能;而 Cloud AI 100 即是一款針對業界廣泛 AI 框架、並用於雲 AI 基處設施的硬體加速器。

透過在行動裝置上的經驗,高通與多個雲 AI 服務商、框架與 AI 技術商有著長期的合作,高通指出 Cloud AI 100 較競品達 50 倍的峰值性能,並大幅降低 AI 基礎建設的功耗,為業界帶來更具效率的雲 AI 服務。高通希望能藉由終端的 AI 經驗,搶佔雲 AI 服務市場。
