It is 56x larger than any other chip. It delivers more compute, more memory, and more communication bandwidth. This enables AI research at previously-impossible speeds and scale.
The Cerebras Wafer Scale Engine 46,225 square millimeters with 1.2 Trillion transistors and 400,000 AI-optimized cores.
By comparison, the largest Graphics Processing Unit is 815 square millimeters and has 21.1 Billion transistors.
Andrew Feldman and the Cerebras team have built the wafer-scale integrated chip. They have successfully solved issues of yield, power delivery, cross-reticle connectivity, packaging, and more. It has a 1,000x performance improvement over what's currently available. It also contains 3,000 times more high speed, on-chip memory, and has 10,000 times more memory bandwidth.
It has a complex system of water-cooling. It uses an irrigation network to counteract the extreme heat generated by a chip running at 15 kilowatts of power.
