The AI-inference market has been dominated by GPUs for quite a while now. This is because GPUs contain parallel processors which are perfect for inference. But now with Intel’s AI processor in the game, things seem to be looking up for the future of CPUs in the AI sector. Intel claims to have achieved 5x the performance compared to a tailor-made suite. This combined with appropriate pricing could mean that the AI market is headed towards some serious changes.

The Nervana processor is a major step up from Intel’s previous designs for the AI market.
