Pohoiki Beach appears to be step two of Intel’s process-architecture-optimization development model. Step three, a larger integration of Loihi chips to be called Pohoiki Springs, is scheduled to debut later this year. Neuromorphic design is still in a research phase, but this and similar projects from competitors such as IBM and Samsung should break ground for eventual commoditization and commercial use.


The new Pohoiki Beach builds on the 2017 success of Intel’s Loihi NPU.
