Nvidia $NVDA+1.5% said it is building the most powerful AI supercomputer to meet growing customer demand for AI applications.
The cloud-based system will cost hundreds of millions of dollars and will be partially operational by the end of 2023. Gilad Shainer, senior vice president of Nvidia, said Nvidia has worked with 800 startups in Israel and tens of thousands of software engineers.
The system, dubbed Israel-1, is expected to provide up to eight exaflops of AI computing power, making it one of the world's fastest AI supercomputers.
To give you an idea: One exaflop has the ability to perform 1 trillion - or 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 - calculations per second.
