The second phase of the Condor Galaxy network, which consists of nine interconnected supercomputers, has been completed, according to an announcement from Cerebras Systems, the American artificial intelligence company, and G42, a technology holding company based in Abu Dhabi.
Cerebras and G42 began construction on Condor Galaxy 2 (CG-2) after Condor Galaxy 1 was completed.
By building the CG-2, the Condor Galaxy network will have eight exaFLOPs and 108 million cores total—four exaFLOPs and 54 million AI-optimized compute cores.
With Condor Galaxy, G42 and its clients can quickly and easily train large, groundbreaking models, which will quicken the pace of innovation.
Cerebras and G42 previously announced their plans to deploy seven more supercomputers, CG-3 through CG-9, in addition to CG-1 and CG-2. This will increase the Condor Galaxy's total compute power to 36 exaFLOPs.
A supercomputer that is capable of performing at least one quintillion floating point operations per second is measured in terms of exaflops.
In July 2023, UAE’s G42 and Cerebras Systems unveiled the CG-1 which has a capacity of 4 exaFLOPs and 54 million cores, with 64 Cerebras CS-2 systems linked together into a single, easy-to-use AI supercomputer.
