Chinese tech giant Huawei on Friday launched the Ascend 910, which is described by the company as the world's most powerful artificial intelligence (AI) processor, and an all-scenario AI computing framework MindSpore.
The Shenzhen-based company said the Ascend 910, which will be used for AI model training, performs much better than previously expected, says a press release.
Huawei announced the planned specs of the new AI processor, belonging to the Ascend-Max chipset series, in 2018 as part of the company's strategy to build a full-stack, all-scenario AI portfolio.
"After a year of ongoing development, test results now show that the Ascend 910 processor delivers on its performance goals with much lower power consumption than originally planned," the company said in a statement.
Also launched on Friday was MindSpore, an AI computing framework that aims to support the development of AI applications in all scenarios.
