Article quote: Google said that the new ASIC handily beats GPUs on training.

 

So Google outright lied (what a suprise) as a 45 TFLOP TPU does not beat a 100 TFLOP GPU.

 

As for the strawman argument about power there is no mention in the article about it and even if it did it doesn't change the lie about handily beating GPUs on training.

The ASIC could beat it if it uses less power per FLOP and costs less.

How does a 45 TFLOP ASIC beat a 100 TFLOP GPU.

 

Answer it does not.

 

It looks like GOOGLE is going the mis-information route Sad.
