Myriad™X is the third generation and most advanced VPU from Movidius™, an Intel company. Myriad™ X is the first VPU to feature the Neural Compute Engine - a dedicated hardware accelerator for deep neural network inferences. The Neural Compute Engine in conjunction with the 16 powerful SHAVE cores and an ultra-high throughput intelligent memory fabric makes Myriad X the industry leader for on-device deep neural networks and computer vision applications. Myriad™ X has received additional upgrades to imaging and vision engines including additional programmable SHAVE cores, upgraded and expanded vision accelerators, and a new native 4K ISP pipeline with support for up to 8 HD sensors connecting directly to the VPU.
As with Myriad™ 2, the Myriad™ X VPU is programmable via the Myriad Development Kit (MDK) which includes all necessary development tools, frameworks and APIs to implement custom vision, imaging and deep neural network workloads on the chip.
