Ideal for exploration, the IPU-POD16 gives you all the power, performance and flexibility you need to fast track your IPU prototypes and speed from pilot to production. IPU-POD16 is your easy-to-use starting point for building better, more innovative AI solutions with IPUs whether you're focused on language and vision, exploring GNNs and LSTMs or creating something entirely new.

  • Fast & efficient for dense matmul models
  • Excels at sparse & fine-grained computation
  • Expert support to get you up and running quickly

We saw a roughly 5X speed gain. That means a researcher can now run potentially five times more experiments, which means we accelerate the whole research and development process and ultimately end up with better models in our products.
