Chinese researchers show CPU designed by AI

A team of Chinese researchers has developed an AI tool capable of designing a working RISC-V CPU in just five hours. It successfully ran the Linux operating system and performed comparably to the human-designed Intel 80486SX CPU from 1991. According to the team, with a working chip in just under five hours, the AI ​​was able to design the chip 1,000 times faster than a human team. The AI ​​was also able to autonomously make discoveries in computer design, uncovering the von Neumann architecture first invented in 1945.

The authors suggest that their approach, outlined in a study titled “Pushing the Limits of Machine Design: Automated CPU Design with AI” could revolutionize the semiconductor industry by significantly shortening the design cycle.
