SiPearl Taps Samsung for Built-in HBM in New AI Chip

SiPearl, the company building the high-performance low-power European microprocessor for high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) inference, has signed a partnership with Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. to equip its Rhea Series with Samsung’s advanced memory solution ideal for HPC and AI applications.

After an extensive market survey, SiPearl has selected the global leading technology company Samsung. Particularly, it selected its High-Bandwidth Memory (HBM) for its outstanding speed and energy efficiency combined with reduced thermal resistance.

This collaboration will enable SiPearl to leverage Rhea family, its first-generation microprocessor, best-in-class performance and energy efficiency for HPC and AI inference workloads.
