SK Telecom chooses Xilinx FPGAs for AI acceleration
By deploying the FPGAs, SKT gained up to five times higher performance in the ASR application compared to GPUs, and 16 times better performance-per-watt.
The FPGA-based accelerators use Xilinx FPGA add-in cards for existing CPU-only servers. The ASR servers then accelerate multiple voice service channels. One FPGA card provides more than five times the performance of a single server.
SKT plans to demonstrate the FPGA-based AI solution at the Xilinx Developer Forum (XDF) in Silicon Valley on October 1-2, and in Beijing on October 16.
