Cerebras unveils “world’s fastest” AI chip

Posted by

Cerebras Systems has announced the creation of the world’s “fastest” AI chip.

The Wafer Scale Engine 3 (WSE-3) has been purpose-built to train the largest AI models up to ten-times larger than GPT-4 and Gemini. The chip contains 4 trillion transistors, each of which is just 5nm in size.

“When we started on this journey eight years ago, everyone said wafer-scale processors were a pipe dream,” said Andrew Feldman, CEO and co-founder of Cerebras Systems, upon WSE-3’s unveiling. “WSE-3 is the fastest AI chip in the world, purpose-built for the latest cutting-edge AI work, from mixture of experts to 24 trillion parameter models. We are thrilled to bring WSE-3 to market to help solve today’s biggest AI challenges.”

Cerebras builds computer systems for AI deep learning applications. Its new CS3 supercomputer, the third iteration of the only commercial wafer-scale AI processor, is powered by the WSE-3.

Feldman said in a press briefing that the new chip, compared with the WSE-2, promises “twice the performance, same power draw, same price, so this would be a true Moore’s Law step”, referring to the rule proposed by Gordon Moore that chip circuitry doubles nearly every two years.
