The application of old techniques to new problems only gets you so far. To remove limitations in AI processors, new thinking is required.

“If you can’t parallelize a section, the serial section determines the maximum speed up,” says Michael Frank, fellow and system architect at Arteris IP. “If you assume that you can parallelize infinitely at times, the parallel section becomes limited by the bandwidth that you have available in the system. So there is a maximum that I can parallelize, because I run out of bandwidth.”
