- Vision Q6 DSP results in up to 2X improvement in GMAC/mm2 compared to the Vision Q6 DSP
For AI applications, the Vision Q7 DSP delivers 512 8-bit MACs, compared to 256 MACs for the Vision Q6 DSP. For greater AI performance, the Vision Q7 DSP can be paired with the Tensilica DNA 100 processor.
The DSP also offers iDMA enhancements including 3D DMA, compression, and a 256-bit AXI interface. The Vision Q7 DSP is a superset of the Vision Q6 DSP, which preserves existing software investment and enables an easy migration from the company's Vision Q6 or Vision P6 DSPs.
The Vision Q7 DSP is expected to be available for general release in the second quarter of 2019.
