HCLTech To Make AI Chips With High-Profile UK Company That Nvidia Failed To Acquire

IT major HCLTech and processor IP leader Arm have joined hands to create custom silicon chips that are optimized for AI workloads.

What Happened: According to the official announcement made on May 27, 2024, the collaboration aims to develop solutions that boost the computing efficiency of data centre environments and meet the evolving needs of customers. HCLTech will leverage the pre-integrated Arm® Neoverse™ Compute Subsystems (CSS) to assist clients in minimizing development risks and swiftly delivering innovative, market-customized solutions. These solutions are designed to enhance performance and scalability for AI workloads.

Previously Nvidia had tried to buy Arm from Softbank for $40 billion in 2020. However, the deal couldn’t go through due to regulatory hurdles. However, Nvidia invested in Arm’s IPO in September 2023. Nvidia had a $147.3 million stake in Arm till December 31, 2023.

Being a part of the Arm Total Design, HCLTech enjoys preferential access to Neoverse CSS. This access allows HCLTech to remain at the forefront of technologies designed to efficiently manage AI workloads, including meeting the future demands of data centre environments.
