Huawei unveiled Ascend 910 AI processor in China on August 23 together with the KI-Framework MindSpore. Last fall, Huawei introduced a new series of processors called Ascend, which are equipped with artificial intelligence and deep learning technologies. Even then it was announced that the first processors of the new line will be the Ascend 910 and Ascend 310, with the Ascend 910 planned to be used in the next generation of data centers.

Details of the Huawei Ascend 910 server processor, which delivers 256 TFLOPS for floating point operations and 512 TFLOPS for integer computing, are now available, with a maximum power consumption of 310 watts. This is much lower than the planned 350 watts mentioned in October 2018.


Huawei argues that the Ascend 910 can process more data in a shorter time than competitors' solutions and helps to train the network in minutes. In fact, according to Huawei chairman Eric Xu, "The Ascend 910 is performing much better than we expected. It has more processing power than any other AI processor in the world.


In addition, today Huawei also launched MindSpore in Shenzhen, a computing environment for artificial intelligence that supports the development of artificial intelligence applications. MindSpore has 20% fewer lines of main code than similar solutions of competitors.


The Mindspore is designed to work with the Ascend 910, making it twice as fast in training artificial intelligence models as its counterparts. The Chinese company aims to meet the different needs of business and consumers. Eric Xu said MindSpore will release open source in the first quarter of 2020 as part of the company's strategy to expand its AI deployment and help developers.
