Tech company Microsoft has announced a custom-designed computing chip. The company has introduced two computer chips.
The company says that the new chipset has not been prepared for the purpose of selling. Instead, the company will use the new chipset as a part of its subscription software offering and cloud computing service.
According to the news agency Reuters, the company has introduced a new chipset named Maia at its Ignite developer conference in Seattle.
With this chipset, AI computing tasks can be done faster than before. Additionally, the company will provide a base for its Copilot service to business software users.
It is known that $30 per month is charged for Microsoft's Copilot service. With this chipset, the company will provide a custom AI service facility to developers. This chipset of Microsoft has been designed only to run large language models.
In fact, big tech companies like Microsoft and Alphabet Google are paying high costs to provide AI services.
This cost to companies is 10 times more than the service cost of search engines. In such a situation, companies are trying to reduce the costs related to AI services. In this context, the Maia chipset is considered special.
Microsoft has introduced the second chipset as a rival to Amazon Web Service. The name of this chipset is Cobalt. The company has said that the second chipset has also been introduced as an internal cost saver. The new chipset is a center processing unit.
This chipset has been designed with Arm Holdings technology. The company said that testing is also going on on this second chipset. So that the company's business messaging tools can be improved.
