Huawei unveiled new AI chips

Chinese tech heavyweight Huawei Technologies Co Ltd unveiled a slate of artificial intelligence chips on Wednesday, in its biggest-ever push to expand presence in the semiconductor sector and to compete with US companies such as Nvidia Corp.

Huawei said one of the new processors, known as Ascend 910, boasts greatest computing density in a single chip, which is roughly more than double the capacity of Nvidia V100 under certain conditions.

Ascend 910 is scheduled to hit the market in the second quarter of 2019.

Xu Zhijun, rotating chairman of Huawei, said the telecom company will spare no efforts to bolster the development of AI by offering technologies and solutions to support all application scenarios.
