850,000 Cores, 2.6 Trillion Transistors

850,000 Cores, 2.6 Trillion Transistors

850,000 cores, 40GB of on-chip SRAM memory, 20PB/s of on-wafer memory bandwidth. Total fabric bandwidth: 220Pb/s. – The 2.6 Trillion transistors are called wafer-scale engine; “WSE-2”. – Use case: AI

The rest of the system, added around the wafer, is to channel the 20,000 Amps it needs, and to dissipate the 15kW of heat it generates. – An option for a BBQ in the server room in the lunch break?…

Makes the 54 billion on average Nvidia A100 look old.
