A few months back, Samsung and Xilinx co-introduced an SSD with a Xilinx FPGA processor on-board, making computational storage very real. The SSD meant data could be processed where it resided rather than moving it to and from memory.
Now they’ve introduced High Bandwidth Memory (HBM) integrated with an artificial intelligence (AI) processor, called the HBM-PIM. The new processing-in-memory (PIM) architecture brings AI processing capabilities inside the memory rather than moving contents in and out to the processor, to accelerate large-scale processing in data centers, high-performance computing (HPC) systems and AI-enabled mobile applications.
