During AI Day this week, Tesla shattered all rules and established industry standards when it comes to making a computer. The presentation, just like on Autonomy Day, was rather technical, and the people making the presentation again may have failed to take into account that not everyone is fully literate in microprocessor design and engineering. Though, AI Day was geared to excite the geeks and try to hire industry experts, so this was likely an intentional choice.
In this deep dive, we scrutinize and explain everything Tesla has said about computer hardware and compare it to the competition and the way things are normally done. Full warning: this presentation is still quite technical, but we do try to explain it all in plain English. If you still have any questions, please leave them down below in the comments and we will try to answer anything that we can.
To make this easier to digest, we are also splitting it into a series of 4 or 5 articles.
The Tesla GPU Stack
In case it wasn’t clear, Tesla has built — with NVIDIA GPUs — one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world. That is what they call the GPU stack and what they hope their programmers will want to turn off and never use again as soon as Dojo is up and running. During the presentation, they said that the number of GPUs is “more than top 5 supercomputer(s) in the world.” I had to dig it up, but what Tesla most likely meant is that they have more GPUs than the 5th most powerful supercomputer in the world,...
