I’ve been keen on rack-scale composable infrastructure for years. Decades even. But it’s only recently that we’ve had the technology to make it happen. You can now create a system or a rack that can flexibly allocate storage and compute using a shared I/O channel. But what if you could add more elements and “decompose” the server further? That’s what Liqid is promising with their latest announcements.
Is the GPU stranglehold on AI workloads about to be disrupted by FPGAs and ASICs?
Intel acquired Altera about 20-months ago in a big $16 billion dollar deal.

The new Cyclone 10 FPGAs are a successor to the Cyclone V series, which was first introduced in 2011 and shipped in 2012.
