Tachyum Gets FreeBSD Running On Their Prodigy ISA Emulation Platform For AI / HPC
Tachyum claims that their processor architecture will be "faster, 10x lower power, and 1/3 the cost of competing products" and initially offer up to 128 core processors. The company is hoping to achieve tape out and chip sampling this calendar year while using their emulated platform has been working on bringing open-source software to this ISA.
After getting Linux up and running on their Prodigy Universal Processor ISA emulated platform, they have now validated FreeBSD for their ecosystem.
