Central Processing Unit (CPU) vs Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) vs Tensor Processing Unit (TPU)


(Team) #1

Central Processing Unit (CPU), Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and Tensor Processing Unit (TPU) are processors with a specialized purpose and architecture. We have compared these in respect to Memory Subsystem Architecture, Compute Primitive, Performance, Purpose, Usage and Manufacturers.
