OpenAI CEO Sam Altman was recently exposed to be launching an ambitious AI chip program, aiming to raise $7 trillion (note: currently about RMB 50.47 trillion), and later tweeted to increase it to $8 trillion, establishing a series of wafer fabs to produce rich chips for global artificial intelligence applications.
After Altman’s plan was exposed, it quickly became a hot topic of discussion in the semiconductor industry. Jim Keller recently expressed his view that if he were to push it forward, the cost may be less than $1 trillion (currently about RMB 7.21 trillion) to achieve.

Jim Keller admits that advancing and achieving this goal will encounter many challenges, including improving the supply chain, integrating software and hardware resources, etc., all of which require a lot of manpower, material resources, and financial resources, and cannot be achieved overnight.
Under the leadership of Jim Keller, Tensorrent is rapidly improving its existing AI based chip architecture. The company recently announced a partnership with Samsung Foundry to develop the next generation of RISC-V based chips, which will use Samsung’s SF4X process.
