A research team in China has successfully implemented a low-cost artificial intelligence (AI) chip to enhance the performance of hypersonic weapons, the South China Morning Post reports.

The breakthrough, detailed in a peer-reviewed paper published in the Chinese academic journal Propulsion Technology, showcases the transformative capabilities of the Nvidia Jetson TX2i GPU computer module when integrated into air-breathing hypersonic aircraft.

The Nvidia chip, which can be purchased online for a fraction of the cost of high-end alternatives, demonstrates unprecedented efficiency in processing computational fluid dynamics models.

Tests indicate that calculations, previously taking seconds to complete, can now be executed in just 25 milliseconds - a remarkable feat, noted to be four times faster than the blink of an eye.

According to Professor Sun Ximing's team from Beijing Power Machinery Research Institute and Dalian University of Technology, the integration of the TX2i module into the scramjet engine control system not only amplifies the range and stability of hypersonic vehicles but also significantly reduces research and development costs.
