By bne IntelliNews June 17, 2021

Slovak semiconductor company Tachyum, which has data centres in Bratislava and Santa Clara in the US, announced the launch of the first-ever universal processor FPGA prototype at the international Globsec Forum 2021, with the potential to create unrivalled computational speed and huge energy saving capabilities. 

“It is with great pride that I can unveil the Prodigy Chip FPGA prototype, marking the most significant step in the green revolution in computing,” commented co-founder and CEO of Tachyum Radoslav Danilak. 

According to him, Tachyum became the world’s first company to develop a completely universal semiconductor chip, combining customer requirements, supercomputing and artificial intelligence.

Moreover, Prodigy’s 10x lower processor core power usage will dramatically cut carbon emissions associated with data centre usage. Danilak stressed that if all the world’s data centres were powered by Prodigy, it could result in a reduction in C02 emissions by 660mn tonnes per year.

“The successful development of our Prodigy Chip now provides us with  a once-in-a-decade opportunity to build the world’s fastest supercomputer here in Slovakia, providing the EU with digital and technological sovereignty of semiconductors, the most sustainable, efficient data centres and Europe’s data infrastructure,” Danilak said. 

Tachyum is one of the founding members of I4DI (Innovations for Digital Infrastructure), which will build the world’s fastest AI supercomputer in Slovakia showcasing Prodigy. The company is supported by leading European InfraTech investor, IPM Group.
