Cerebras Systems and Group 42 (G42) have launched Condor Galaxy, a network of nine interconnected supercomputers aimed at accelerating generative AI and reducing model training time. The first supercomputer, Condor Galaxy 1 (CG-1), boasts 4 exaFLOPS and 54 million cores. Plans are in place for two more supercomputers, CG-2 and CG-3, to be deployed in the US by early 2024, with a total planned capacity of 36 exaFLOPS. This deployment showcases the market potential for specialized AI hardware beyond GPUs. Despite the preference of hyperscalers for Nvidia GPUs, the partnership between Cerebras and G42 highlights opportunities beyond major tech giants.
