A Month ago we wrote about Cerebras Wafer Scale Engine — the world's largest chip. Recall that this chip has dimensions comparable with the iPad Pro, consists of 1.2 trillion transistors and consumes 15 kW of power.

Despite the unique features of the product, even then Cerebras Systems said that a start to put it to one of my customers. It is not known what it was for the client, but now it is reported that another partner was the Department of energy (Department of Energy; DOE).

the Ministry has been using supercomputers for their own purposes, so his interest in Cerebras Wafer Scale Engine is quite understandable.

In particular, the chip giant will go in and Livermore Argonne national laboratory, which will be used in conjunction with existing supercomputers.

To Cerebras Systems such a partnership is essential because, first, it means that the customer enough confidence in the readiness of the product, and secondly, other potential customers will be more willing to cooperate, seeing that the decisions Cerebras Systems used in government.
