The IP could theoretically yield better results than the hardware at this point

The compiler’s operator libraries are still growing to include new operators found in rapidly evolving models, Tate said.

“Every time a new model comes along, they invent new operators, and for a lot of architectures, that’s a problem,” he said. “With our architecture, it’s programmable, so every operator that we see, we can handle, because we have embedded FPGA as a backup.”

The technology is proven (in the InferX X1) in TSMC 16 nm. Availability of the IP on different nodes is based on customer demand, Tate said …”

The problem for Flex is their biggest features have been completely overshadowed by tech from Nvidia or OpenAI. and AMD's Xlinix FPGA's put theirs to shame.
