Intel Introduces Gaudi 3 Chip to Challenge Nvidia, Redefining AI Computing Landscape

By Staff Writer, 10 April 2024

Intel unveiled its latest advancement in artificial intelligence technology during its Vision event on Tuesday, introducing the Gaudi 3 chip aimed at challenging Nvidia's dominance in AI-centric semiconductors.

In response to the increasing demand for AI chips, Intel presented the Gaudi 3 chip as an alternative solution. Promising enhanced performance, the new chip boasts the capability to train large language models 50% faster than Nvidia's previous H100 processor.

Moreover, it excels in the inference process, outpacing the H100 chips in certain model tests.

Jeni Barovian, Vice President of Strategy and Product Management at Intel, emphasized the importance of providing choice in the industry, stating, "Our customers, first and foremost, are asking for choice in the industry. They are coming to us and they are expecting that Intel, as a computing leader, will follow the wave of (generative AI) and deliver solutions that meet their needs. And they are looking for an open approach."

Manufactured using Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co's 5nm process, the Gaudi 3 chip features two fused main processor chips, doubling the speed of its predecessor.

Designed for scalability, these chips can be linked together to create massive computing power.

Scheduled for release in the second quarter of this year, the Gaudi 3 chip will be accessible to server builders including Supermicro and Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

Intel also hinted at future developments, revealing that the next generation of Gaudi chips will be codenamed Falcon Shores.
