Top AI chipset companies announced
NVIDIA, Intel, NXP, IBM, and AMD top the A-List in the AI Chipset Index based on recently released research by Compass Intelligence. The A-List in the AI Chipset Index includes companies providing software and hardware components of artificial intelligence (AI) chipsets. AI chipset products include central processing units, graphic processing units, neural network processors, application specific integrated circuits, field programmable gate arrays, reduced instruction set computer processors, and accelerators. These companies, among others, are the top companies innovating and succeeding in AI chipset technologies, according to Compass Intelligence's research. Based on a proprietary research framework and model, these companies scored roughly 80 to 90 points out of a total of 100 points per the index.
NVIDIA tops the A-List in the AI Chipset Index, followed by Intel, NXP, IBM, and AMD. Rounding out the rest of the top 15 include Google, ARM, Apple, Qualcomm, Broadcom, Samsung Electronics, Huawei, Imagination, Synopsys, and MediaTek. NVIDIA is leading the way with its Volta GPU architecture for data centers, NVIDIA DRIVE PX for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS, AI chip for self-driving cars), Xavier system on a chip (SOC) used in the NVIDIA DRIVE PX 2 platform, and other innovations such as the DGX-1 AI supercomputer. Other companies that made the top 24 include Marvell, Xilinx, CEVA, Cadence, General Vision, Rockchip, Cambricon, Verisilicon, and Horizon Robotics.
“Companies have invested over $60 billion in AI through acquisitions and startups over the last three years, in addition to their own research and development,” said Nadine Manjaro, senior analyst. “The AI chipset segment is one area where companies are racing to improve chipset processing and power efficiency. Hiring, acquisitions, and new announcements in the AI sector are occurring at such a rapid pace as this technology is expected to impact many industries and support the rapid scale of Internet of Things.”
