Cerebras Systems said its Wafer Scale Engine processor is the largest chip ever built, measuring at 1.2 trillion transistors and packing 400,000 compute cores. The chip powers the Los Altos, Calif.-based startup’s CS-1 system, which it said in November is more than 10,000 times faster than a GPU for running neural networks. Since the startup debuted its WCE chip and CS-1 system last year, it has landed big deals to provide its CS-1 systems to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Argonne National Laboratory and the National Science Foundation’s Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center.
