Chips that do one thing well have been hyped as a pathway beyond the end of the Moore's Law era. But the promise of these specialized microprocessors just suffered a reality check from Princeton University researchers.
By Adam Hadhazy
Princeton researchers, in collaboration with Analog Devices Inc., have fabricated a chip that markedly boosts the performance and efficiency of neural networks — computer algorithms modeled on the workings of the human brain.
In a series of tests, the Princeton chip performed tens to hundreds of times better than...
