GPU start-up brings MIMD to graphics and compute.

Jon Peddie

X-Silicon, formed by ex-Silicon Valley experts, aims to revolutionize GPU design with a RISC-V vector-based unified graphics-compute engine (C-GPU) capable of AI, HPC, and 2D/3D graphics tasks. Their MIMD architecture enables independent CPU and GPU code execution within a single core, lowering memory usage and increasing performance. The company’s multicore layout features fast compositor fabric, enhancing data aggregation for diverse applications. X-Silicon seeks to reduce GPU latency through near-memory compute and novel hardware setups, backed by 14 patents. Targeting AR/VR, embedded devices, autos, and more, X-Silicon supports standard APIs and open programming for rapid development. Initial IP sales are aimed
