On Monday, the Silicon Valley firm unveiled the chip, which is about 100 times larger than your average chip, measuring roughly 9 inches on each side, and has 1.2 trillion transistors.
Cerebras claims its the largest chip ever built. Notably, a chip this size has the potential to revolutionize AI as demands for intense computing power continue to grow. (OpenAI estimates that the amount of power used by the largest published AI experiments doubled every 3½ months from 2012 to 2018). Eugenio Culurciello, a chipmaker at Micron, notes that using Cerebras’ chip “will be expensive, but some people will probably use it.
