Tenstorrent, a Canadian startup, has become a new customer of Samsung’s contract chip manufacturing division, the firm said on Monday.

Tenstorrent is one of many firms attempting to take on Nvidia (NVDA.O), the industry leader in AI processors. The firm works on providing other sectors, such as the automobile industry, in addition to producing chips and intellectual property for data centers.

Tenstorrent will manufacture the chips using one of Samsung’s cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, 4nm, as part of the agreement. The Tenstorrent product, created by Samsung, is a chipset intended to be packaged with other chipsets.

The two companies kept the deal’s pricing and the number of chips that would be produced a secret.

RISC-V is an open-source semiconductor architecture that competes with the Arm and x86 architectures used by Intel (INTC.O) and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD.O) in some of Tenstorrent’s devices.

Quasar is the name of the chip that Samsung will produce; it is not based on RISC-V technology. Tenstorrent CEO Jim Keller stated that the company emphasizes creating high-performance computing and providing global solutions to clients.

The chip agreement comes after a $100 million funding raising, including Hyundai Motor Co (005380. KS) and other companies, including Samsung, invested in Tenstorrent in August.

Tenstorrent had received $234.5 million and was valued at $1 billion before the investment round in August.
