That's part of it, but they are also using a different approach. Instead of designing silicon for general purpose use, they are designing it to do one thing only, and to do that one thing very well. In specializing the hardware itself, efficiency in speed and power become easier to realize.
TensorFlow is the name of the specialized software that was designed to run on the TPU.




Found an article that explains it better than I did.  ;)

They are just damn lucky that they didn't wind up with a Horta on their hands.  http://www.who2.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/mccoykirkspock-730x543.jpg

;D   I got a chuckle out of that, because in all reality, that's exactly what they're aiming for.   ;)

I just used 'distributed quantum computing' as a search query. Pop in whatever you're looking for in tech docs.

Rocks cluster setup walk-through. (Rocks is a Redhat / Fedora flavor)   http://www.linuxjournal.com/magazine/building-linux-based-high-performance-compute-cluster?page=0,0

Which way would you go?  ???

It bugs me that they don't put a component out as well as a HDMI. Most retro games I prefer through a CRT. Light gun games won't play without them.
