The product that the funding is directly related to is the Prodigy Processor Universal Chip. Tachyum claims its new chip is faster than Xeon and smaller than ARM. On top of that claim, Tachyum also states its 64-core processor requires 10x less power and reduces processor cost by 3x. The company has found a way to reduce the amount of hardware found in a typical processor that relates to faster speeds at a lower cost. The company says the new chip can enable an Exaflop supercomputer using a mere 250,000 Prodigy processors. Tachyum also states that its new processor will allow users to simulate, in real-time, human brain-sized neural nets beginning in 2020, instead of 2028.
