Elektronik Article: HotChips 2019: ETH Zurich Takes Floating-Point Arithmetic To A New Level

By August 20, 2019May 12th, 2021No Comments

NTX is the name given to a hardware accelerator that ETH Zurich has developed for floating-point arithmetic. With 260 Gflops / W, the chip implemented in 22nm FD-SOI offers unmatched energy efficiency and beats every competitor by far.  Eight NTX units are controlled by an RV32IMC RISC V-Core, which provides full software flexibility. A key feature is a focus on eliminating the bottleneck common to Neumann architectures by amortizing RISC-V instructions across eight NTX units and removing all FP load/store operations from the instruction stream through the AGUs.
