HPE is developing a high-performance AI supercomputer with the world’s largest CPU

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has revealed that it is working on a new AI supercomputer alongside Cerebras Systems, the company behind the world’s largest chip.

The new system will be built up of HPE Superdome Flex servers and Cerebras CS-2 accelerators, both of which will be powered by the Wafer-Scale Engine 2 (WSE-2) processor.

The unnamed supercomputer will go operational at the Leibniz Supercomputing Center (LRZ) in Bavaria later this summer, enabling researchers

The wafer-sized chip also has 40GB of on-chip memory and a memory bandwidth of 20PB/s, allowing all parameters of large-scale AI models
