5G redefines everything
Today, Qualcomm Meng Pu said that the 5G era has officially arrived. If 4G is to connect tens of millions of people, 5G will redefine everything and open the era of interconnection.
According to the "5G Economy" report, by 2035, 5G-related products and services will have $12.3 trillion. The value of AI derivatives will reach $3.9 trillion in 2022.
5G deployment is faster than 4G
4G is by far the most successful deployment platform, and the development of 5G will be more optimistic than that of 4G. Looking back at the 4G era, the first deployment was only four operators, and only three OEM manufacturers launched related products. In the early days of 5G, more than 20 operators deployed and more than 20 OEM manufacturers announced the release of related products. The development of 5G has attracted much attention from the telecommunication industry.
Qualcomm thinks 5G AI will be the future trend. When the 5G comes, there will be hundreds of millions of product connections. How can we handle such a huge amount of data? Qualcomm believes the combination of 5G AI is needed.
Qualcomm has been in the AI field for many years. AI project was launched in 2007, AI innovation was accelerated in 2008, and many AI enterprises were invested in 2009. At the same time, Qualcomm expects that by 2025, the application rate of AI on the terminal side of the important segment market will reach 100%, which will grow rapidly compared with 10% in 2019.
Qualcomm shows AI muscles in many fields
At AI Day in San Francisco last week, Qualcomm unveiled three new hardware models, two Miaolong mobile platforms and a Cloud AI 100 chip for edge reasoning. The three products have been fully upgraded in AI.
Cloud AI 100 is a hardware product specially designed for AI. It uses 7 nanometer process technology and integrates compiler, debugger, analyzer and monitor.The serverChip debugger, quantizer and other tools.
Furthermore, various machine learning frameworks including TensorFlow, PyTorch, Keras, MXNet and ONNX are supported on AI reasoning (learning, situational inference, prediction).
According to Qualcomm, Cloud AI 100 operates more than 100 trillion times per second, and its peak performance is 3 to 50 times higher than that of Miaolong 855 and Miaolong 820. Cloud AI 100 is expected to start production in the second half of 2020.
Cloud AI 100 Chip
Qiulong 730, 730G and 655 mobile platforms are also products released last week by AI Day in the same period, just finished the Sanxing A series.Mobile phoneAt the press conference, A80 mobile phone has been equipped with the Qiaolong 730G mobile platform.
The M730 Mobile Platform Series adopts 8-nanometer process technology with built-in Kryo 470 CPU, Hexagon 688 graphics processor, Spectra 350 image signal processor, Adreno 618 GPU and Vulkan 1.1 graphics driver.
The focus of the Qianlong 730 series is the built-in Qualcomm 4th generation AI engine, which is twice as powerful as the previous 710 platform. In addition, the Haexagon tensor accelerator, which is used on the mobile platform of Luan 855, is also partly introduced in the Luan 730 series.
On the basis of 730, 730G supports Snapdragon Elite Gaming feature, which is also the technology used by Luan 855 mobile platform. Mainly in the game experience to improve the quality, fluency.
The 730G enhanced version of Adreno 618 GPU, compared with the Qiaolong 730, has a 15% faster graphics rendering speed, and can reduce up to 90% of the game carton in the 30fps game.
Moulong 665 is a 600-series mobile platform of Moulong. It uses the third generation Qualcomm AI engine with 11-nanometer process technology. The processing capacity of terminal side AI is twice as much as that of Moulong 660.
AI Supported by Qualcomm Chips
Qualcomm shows a map showing the platform capabilities that support Qualcomm AI. Red is the integrated AI Engine and blue is the support AI. You can see that the Miaolong 6 Mobile Platform supports AI Engine from 660.
