To accelerate Machine Learning Recommendation and other workloads, Esperanto Technologies has implemented over a thousand low-power RISC-V processors on a single chip along with a distributed on-die memory system. This talk will go over the design of the 7nm ET-SoC-1 chip and how Esperanto extended the RISC-V instruction set to provide over 100 TOPS of performance and to be able to run ML recommendation workloads using less than 20 watts of power.
