First and foremost, it's only designed to work with the newer graphics APIs, DirectX 12 and Vulkan, although it supports many operating systems: Windows 7, Windows 10, and Linux (Ubuntu 16.04). It doesn't (yet) support Vega, so you will need to have a 400-, 500-, or Fury series GPU. I expect that will change in the near future, though.

Nvidia claims Pascal GPUs would challenge Google's TensorFlow TPU in updated benchmarks

Google's results revealed that the TPU is much faster than a conventional GPU for processing inference workloads, at a fraction of the power consumption. While machine learning still takes place on GPUs, Google's TPU results are a significant leap forward for inference processing -- and Nvidia, as one might expect, has its own take on those numbers.

Nvidia Discusses Multi-Die GPUs
When designing an integrated circuit, you are attempting to fit as much complexity as possible within your budget of space, power, and so forth. One harsh limitation for GPUs is that, while your workloads could theoretically benefit from more and more processing units, the number of usable chips from a batch shrinks as designs grow, and the reticle limit of a fab's manufacturing node is basically a brick wall.

Multi-Chip-Module accelerators are nothing new, really. Though there are earlier implementations, when it comes to recognizable hardware most of us has already heard of, these solutions harken back to Intel's Kentsfield and Yorkfield quad-core processors (built on the 65 nm process for the LGA 775 package.) However, a singular issue with this kind of approach is having a powerful, performant-enough interconnect that allows the different cores in each module to really "talk" to each other and work perfectly in tandem.
