Musk plans to buy Huida H100 GPU to build a \”super computing power factory\”

According to technology media \”The Information\”, Elon Musk\’s artificial intelligence startup xAI plans to build a large-scale supercomputer to enhance its artificial intelligence chat robot Grok. This supercomputer, which Musk calls a \”supercomputing factory,\” is expected to be ready in the fall of 2025 and may involve cooperation with Oracle (ORCL-US).

According to technology media \”The Information\”, Elon Musk\’s artificial intelligence startup xAI plans to build a large-scale supercomputer to enhance its artificial intelligence chat robot Grok.
This supercomputer, which Musk calls a \”supercomputing factory,\” is expected to be ready in the fall of 2025 and may involve cooperation with Oracle (ORCL-US).
With this development, Musk aims to significantly surpass rival GPU clusters in scale and capabilities.
In a presentation to investors, Musk revealed that the new supercomputer will use up to 100,000 Nvidia H100 GPUs based on the Hopper architecture, making it at least four times larger than the largest existing GPU clusters.
In April, Musk aimed to raise $4 billion in funding for xAI at a $15 billion valuation.
The surge in investor interest prompted Musk to raise his fundraising target to $6 billion, valuing the company at $18 billion.
Additionally, these funds are expected to significantly increase xAI’s GPU count.
The goal is to increase the number from about 10,000 to 100,000 GPUs.
This expansion is not just a quantitative increase but a strategic enhancement designed to unify these GPUs into a powerful supercomputer architecture enabling Grok to reach new heights of AI efficiency and capability.
Musk shared his vision for the trajectory of xAI at the VivaTech 2024 conference in Paris.
He expressed confidence that xAI will catch up with artificial intelligence industry leaders such as OpenAI and DeepMind by the end of 2024.
Musk also speculates that artificial intelligence systems like Grok can surpass humans in all tasks by the end of 2025, potentially redefining humans\’ role in the economy.
Musk is positioning xAI as a formidable challenger in artificial intelligence, which is exactly why he needs the upcoming supercomputer.
NVDA\’s (NVDA-US) H100 series of powerful GPUs dominate the AI ​​data center chip market but are hard to come by due to high demand.
Huida also expects to launch the H200 computing GPU for AI and HPC applications and is preparing to launch Blackwell-based B100 and B200 GPUs in the second half of this year.

Pavich Kesavawong, Thailand\’s deputy minister of climate change and environment, also said earlier that Bangkok may not be able to adapt to the world\’s current global warming trend, so the authorities have been considering moving the capital. From the first linear city in Saudi Arabia to the new cities of the Indonesian archipelago, a new wave of cities is taking root around the world. Investment bank UBS estimates the scale of construction projects at more than $1.5 trillion and is using the insights of its global industry team to identify companies that will benefit from this phase of construction. Lian Peikun, Director of Greater China Research at UBS Investment Bank, said: \”Currently urbanization has promoted the prosperity of successful cities. We have further discovered five emerging themes, namely the growth of livable demand, mixed life-work-entertainment communities, Deepening connectivity, smart cities and green cities – we believe these themes will drive cities into the future.” UBS further pointed out through case studies what macro and investment opportunities these themes will bring. Indonesia is solving the environmental and socio-economic problems facing Jakarta by building a new capital, Nusantara.
