Canadian company Tenstorrent, according to The Economic Times, intends to enter into cooperation agreements with Indian startups to develop microprocessors with the RISC-V architecture. According to Tenstorrent CEO Jim Keller, we are talking, in particular, about building full-fledged data centers on the open RISC-V platform.
Mr. Keller took over Tenstorrent in early 2023. Prior to that, he worked at AMD, Apple, Intel and Tesla, and joined the startup two years ago. As for Tenstorrent, this young company is engaged in the creation of AI and machine learning systems, as well as high-performance processors with the RISC-V architecture. The firm has offices in the US and Canada, in British Cambridge, Indian Bangalore and Serbian Belgrade.
Jim Keller said that he had worked with Indian engineers for many years and came to the conclusion that sometimes they show “undue optimism”. At the same time, he noted that he enjoyed interacting with teams from India for a long time. Therefore, the Tenstorrent design centers in Bangalore intend to partner with some local start-ups on a number of promising projects.
The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology of India previously launched the Digital India RISC-V (DIR-V) program with the goal of producing state-of-the-art domestic chips with this architecture in 2023-2024. This initiative is expected to contribute to the development of the Indian semiconductor industry. Previously, the RISC-V family of Shakti chips was created in India.
