Re: Not so fast?

Indeed this is great news to those of use looking at some smaller scale TPU/GPU hardware for home AI tinkering. Right now I can get an Nvidia Jetson board (2 ARM cores + 192 CUDA cores(?)) for about US$200. If Google can release the specs we might be able to buy these things in the near future, rather than use the cloudy version of this new h/w. Then some smart chaps in the UK can build out a GPIO extender to talk to the TPU and make my Raspberry Pi do some thunkin'! [sic] :P The sky's the limit!
