Huawei this week launched a new AI processor – the Ascend 910 – as well as an all-scenario AI computing framework, MindSpore. Huawei claims that the new AI processor has more computing power than any other AI processor in the world.

The Ascend 910 is a new AI processor that belongs to Huawei's series of Ascend-Max chipsets. Huawei announced the processor's planned specs in 2018. After a year of ongoing development, test results now show that the Ascend 910 processor delivers on its performance goals with much lower power consumption than originally planned, claims Huawei.

Moving forward, Huawei will continue investing in AI processors to deliver more abundant, affordable, and adaptable computing power that meets the needs of a broad range of scenarios (e.g., edge computing, on-vehicle computing for autonomous driving, and training).

Huawei's MindSpore is an AI computing framework that supports development for AI applications in all scenarios. AI computing frameworks are critical to making AI application development easier, making AI applications more pervasive and accessible, and ensuring privacy protection.

Eric Xu, Huawei's Rotating Chairman
Everything is moving forward according to plan, from R&D to product launch. We promised a full-stack, all-scenario AI portfolio. And today we delivered, with the release of Ascend 910 and MindSpore. This also marks a new stage in Huawei's AI strategy.
