Company Tachyum, which also in 2020 introduced 128-core universal processor Prodigy With some limitless performance, it has announced a workstation that many ordinary users will be able to handle.

The PC is called Prodigy ATX Platform and will cost 5000 dollars. This is not much for a typical consumer PC, but for a workstation this is a quite normal price.

The system based on Prodigy ATX Platform, of course, will be based on the same processor as Prodigy, only reduced to 96 cores. The CPU will operate at a frequency of 5.7 GHz and offer an eight-channel controller DDR5.

The configuration of the system also includes 1 TB of RAM and a power supply unit with a power of 1200 W. Worth noting are three slots PCIe 5.0 and three slots M.2 for SSD.

Power, how do you have 52 Nvidia H100, 1 TB memory, and all this for 5000 dollars? Tachyum promises to release the Prodigy ATX platform on its superprocessor.

The company orients its platform to work with AI. In particular, the manufacturer claims that one processor Prodigy can launch the model ChatGPT4 with 1,7 trillion parameters, while for the work of the same model requires 52 graphics processor Nvidia H100!

As for the 96-core CPU in the desktop system, the company calls it semi-crystalline. Speaking of which, this is half of the larger 192-core CPU. By the way, earlier during the announcement Tachyum talked about a 128-core processor, but now on the site there is information only about 192-core.

All this looks very impressive and to some extent even fantastic, considering the comparison with the Nvidia H100. Unfortunately, there are reasons to doubt that Tachyum will be able to offer the Prodigy ATX Platform for 5000 dollars. For example, 1 TB memory RDIMM costs about 3800 dollars at retail. Even though the company will buy the modules cheaper, this is only OZU. Another cost is the complex system board, power supply unit and processor with cosmic performance.

Additionally, it is not yet clear whether the Tachyum processor is real at all. Remember, the first announcement was back in 2020 with plans for release in the same year. Then the plans changed several times, but the processor was still not released. Now the company talks about launching at the end of this year. To some peculiarities can be attributed and a one-and-a-half-fold increase in the number of CPU cores, but this requires additional efforts to design a new chip.
