Google sees Domain specific custom chips...

• http://www.nextbigfuture.com

The TPU die leverages its advantage in MACs and on-chip memory to run short programs written using the domain-specific TensorFlow framework 15 times as fast as the K80 GPU die, resulting in a performance/Watt advantage of 29 times, which is correlated with performance/total cost of ownership. Compared to the Haswell CPU die, the corresponding ratios are 29 and 83. While future CPUs and GPUs will surely run inference faster, a redesigned TPU using circa 2015 GPU memory would go two to three times as fast and boost the performance/Watt advantage of nearly 70 over the K80 and 200 over Haswell.
