Tencent Cloud, the Chinese giant's cloud services subsidiary, recently unveiled three new AI chips its working on that reportedly deliver significantly faster results than existing systems.

Tencent Cloud, Tencent's cloud services subsidiary recently announced that it was rolling out three new AI chips, set to deliver performance that's significantly faster than solutions that currently exist on the market.

The three chips, named Zixiao, Xuanling, and Canghai will help cloud services clients with a wide range of work, from image processing to video encoding to search suggestions and storage virtualization. 

The Zixiao chip reportedly accelerates image processing and NLP (natural language processing) workloads by up to 100 percent. Xuanling handles storage and networking virtualization and is reportedly four times faster than market leaders, while Canghai reportedly delivers 30 percent improved results in video transcoding workloads. 

While Tencent Cloud gave ballpark performance figures, it unfortunately did not provide benchmark numbers for any of the AI chips or list the competitors they're stacked against. Cloud services that run on these three AI chips should become available to Tencent customers in the months to come - we'll only know then whether their claims of beating the competition hold true. 

Keep track of GeForce RTX 3080 availability here on Amazon for better offline AI capabilities.
