Telum from IBM has a centralized design that will allow the clients to make use of the power of the AI processor to the max for AI-specific workloads
The Big Blue IBM has recently made an announcement about its new chip ‘Telum’. The latest addition is touted to help clients make use of the company’s deep learning features at scale. Telum from IBM has a centralized design that will allow the clients to make use of the power of the AI processor to the max for AI-specific workloads. This feature makes it ideal for managing workloads of financial services like loan processing, fraud detection, risk analysis, anti-money laundering, and settlement of trades.
In its press release, IBM had mentioned that Telum is expected to be released in the first half of 2022, and the company’s main aim now is to improve its offering by 2.5 percent year after year for a decade. The chip features eight processor cores, and it runs at 5GHz plus clock speed, well-crafted to meet the demands of enterprise-level workloads. 32MB cache per core is expected, and the chip has a completely redesigned cache along with a better chip-interconnection infrastructure. Telum also contains more than 22 billion transistors and over 19 miles of wire on several metal layers. Recent reports from Federal Trade Commission show that companies lost more than $3.3 billion in 2020. Telum is expected to reduce that number in the coming years.
