Default Cerebras releases world’s biggest chip

Designed for AI

Cerebras Systems announced the biggest chip the world has ever seen, the "wafer-scale engine," or "WSE."

The chip is dedicated to solving machine learning problems in artificial intelligence and could lead to dramatic changes in the way deep learning networks are devised, at least that is what it tells us.

Cerebras's "Wafer-Scale Engine" takes up almost all the area of a 12-inch silicon wafer, making it 57 times the size of Nvidia's largest graphics processing unit.

But that opens shedloads of design problems about how you create a coherent system functioning across a wafer 12 inches in diameter that is usually meant to be cut into multiple parts for individual chips.

The wafer is organised into 84 tiles or bricks, as you might call them, and if one of them is bad, you need to have software to isolate that so it doesn't affect the performance of the whole wafer.

Only about 1- 2 percent of the wafer area is unusable in any wafer run.
