Intel Movidius Myriad X — the world’s first module of image processing with its own neural network deep learning
Intel yesterday introduced the module of image processing Movidius Myriad X. How claims processor giant, Movidius Myriad X – the world’s first single-chip system, comprising unit Neural Compute Engine.
Neural Compute Engine hardware block responsible for the high speed neural networks deep learning. It should allow the end device based on Movidius Myriad X, to understand the environment and react to it in real time. The performance of the unit Neural Compute Engine 1 reaches the TOPS (trillion operations per second), whereas the total capacity is 4 X Myriad TOPS.
Among other features of the new Intel allocates, for example, 16 128-bit vector processors with VLIW architecture (one instruction contains multiple operations that are executed in parallel). Also Myriad X is able to work simultaneously with up to eight HD cameras, due to the presence 16 of the MIPI lines with a total throughput capacity of 700 million pixels per second. In addition, there are more than 20 hardware accelerators, data processing responsible for processing of image and sound.
Myriad X got 2.5 MB of memory Homogenous On-Chip Memory. Is a centralized memory architecture, providing the bandwidth of 450 GB/s, reducing power consumption by minimizing the transmission of data outside of the chip.
