Why we backed Habana Labs?

  • Innovation Gaps & Market Needs

    CPU/GPU architectures are not optimized for neural network workloads. Habana approached this problem by developing its processor platforms to be optimized for training deep neural networks and keeping in mind deployment environments.

  • Execution & Outcome Driven Leadership

    For three years, Habana developed cutting-edge AI processors: Gaudi (for training with integrated remote direct memory access over Converged Ethernet) and Goya (for inference). In 2019, Goya demonstrated performance of 15,453 images-per-second throughput on ResNet-50. Intel acquired Habana to strengthen its AI portfolio and accelerate its efforts in the AI silicon market.
