Intel has released a video showing off details about the Movidius Myriad X, the next-gen VPU delivering artificial intelligence at the edge for drones, robotics, smart cameras, virtual reality/augmented reality solutions and more.
The Movidius Myriad X VPU with Neural Compute Engine is the third generation VPU delivering a total performance of over 4 trillion
operations per second (TOPS) as well as bring even lower power consumption, making it a perfect power efficient solution for advanced devices such as drones, smart cameras, smart home, security, VR/AR headsets, and 360-degree cameras.
In addition to the dedicated Neural Compute Engine, the Movidius Myriad X also comes with enhanced ISP with 4K support, 16 high-performance SHAVE cores and new Vision Accelerators including Stereo Depth.
While the above video gives a general idea regarding the actual features of the Intel Movidius Myriad X VPU as well as its usage, Intel has also released a video which gives a bit more details about the chip anatomy, including the integrated Neural Compute Engine, a dedicated hardware accelerator for on-device deep learning applications.
In terms of performance, the Movidius Myriad X VPU has a 10x higher performance compared to the Myriad 2 VPU, provides 3x higher resolution support, and can achieve 6x faster stereo depth, all compared to the previous generations.
