Groq’s chip architecture is something all electrical engineers will drool over. It not only focuses on high-performance computing (HPC), artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML), but it can do 1 PetaOp—1 quadrillion operations per second. “Which is four commas, not three... yeah,” Groq’s CEO Jonathan Ross emphasizes while confirming it is indeed 300X faster than NVIDIA’s chip. This “successful college dropout” designed Google’s TPU (tensor processing unit) and came up with $10B ideas at X - the moonshot factory, but “never in a million years” thought he’d be Groq’s CEO.
