Google and MediaTek to Partner on AI Server Chip Development?

MediaTek has denied a report that it will partner with Google to develop AI server chips. The report, which was published by the Taiwanese media outlet Economic Daily, claimed that the two companies would jointly produce chips for AI servers using TSMC's 5nm process. The report also said that the chips would be mass-produced at the beginning of next year.

MediaTek said in a statement that the report was "false" and that it had "not received any orders from Google for AI server chips." The company also said that it would "take legal action" against anyone who spreads false information about it.

The report had sparked speculation that Google was looking to expand its presence in the AI server market. Google already offers a line of TPUs, which are custom-designed chips for machine learning applications. However, the company has faced increasing competition from other chipmakers, such as Nvidia and Intel.

It is unclear whether Google and MediaTek will eventually partner on AI server chip development. However, the report has highlighted the growing importance of AI in the computing industry. As AI applications become more complex, there is a growing demand for specialized chips that can efficiently run these applications.

MediaTek has issued a new statement in which it says that the report about the company receiving a large order from Google for AI server chips is "based on market rumors that have not been fully verified." The company said that it "takes the protection of the rights and interests of the company and investors very seriously" and that it will "take legal action" if the report is found to be false.

The statement from MediaTek suggests that the report about the company's partnership with Google was inaccurate. However, it is still possible that the two companies could work together on AI server chip development in the future.
