There are quite a few companies working on AI-chips similiar to the TPU's used by google. Two of the companies I am intrested in are Wave and GraphCore.
GraphCore will probably release their AI-accelerator in 2018 and maybe some chess enthusiasts gets one :P

I say the race for super human engines just started.

So, when will we see top engines based on neural networks
running on common hardware?

You can try out a 48x5 distilled network running on a raspberry pi 3 looking at 8 nodes per move. Let me know if you can win. https://lichess.org/@/MiniHuman

Maybe I don't understand the question. But it seems to me we are already running superhuman NN engines on common hardware. All I had to do was go to Micro Center.

Maybe you didn't notice the date of the original post.
