Elon Musk Plans xAI Supercomputer

Elon Musk's xAI intends to create a supercomputer for its AI chatbot Grok. Musk plans to have the supercomputer operating by autumn 2025. There is a chance of collaborating with Oracle to construct the supercomputer.

According to The knowledge, Musk disclosed this knowledge during a recent investor presentation.


Musk plans to have the supercomputer operational by the autumn of 2025, according to the story. He also raised the potential of collaborating with IT behemoth Oracle to create this enormous computer infrastructure.


However, xAI could not be reached for an instant remark, and Oracle did not respond to Reuters' request for comment.


Once completed, the supercomputer will consist of interconnected groups of chips, specifically Nvidia's flagship H100 graphics processing units (GPUs). The size of these GPU clusters will be at least four times larger than the current largest clusters available, as stated by Musk during his presentation in May.


Nvidia's H100 family of powerful GPUs currently dominates the AI data center chip market. However, due to high demand, they can be challenging to obtain.


Elon Musk founded xAI last year as a direct competitor to Microsoft-backed OpenAI and Google's Alphabet. It is worth noting that Musk is also a co-founder of OpenAI.


Earlier this year, Musk revealed that training the Grok 2 model required approximately 20,000 Nvidia H100 GPUs. Looking ahead, he anticipates that the Grok 3 model and subsequent versions will require a staggering 100,000 Nvidia H100 chips.
