From a paper published online by Chinese scientists from the Tsinghua University team on October 25, 2023. For details, watch the video.

Made by SMIC (Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corporation).

In lab tests, the microchip achieved a computing speed of 4.6 petaflops with ovwr 99% of the computations performed optically.

3000 times faster than Nvidia A100

The ACCEL chip also uses 4 000 000 times less energy, easing obviously heat generation issues.
