Apple has unveiled an updated version of the 10th generation iPad with eSIM support in China. Note that in China there is currently only one cellular operator that supports eSIM – China Unicom.
Chinese users will be able to start pre-ordering from October 19, 2023, and open sales will start on October 25.
When purchasing, you should pay attention that only one Chinese version of the tablet has eSIM support – the 10th generation iPad (Wi-Fi + Cellular) with number A3162. All other iPad and iPhone models do not support eSIM in China.
The CIA is concerned about China’s ability to gain access to the most powerful supercomputer for AI training, based on chips the size of an iPad.
Due to more and more US sanctions, China cannot receive the latest AI accelerators and much more, which is also related to artificial intelligence. However, now the US government has concerns that China will still gain access to such technologies, and not just like that, right away to the most productive supercomputer for AI training.
We are talking about the Condor Galaxy system, which in itself is unique and extremely unusual, but we have already written about this. This system is being built by G42 from the UAE. The company is reportedly controlled by Sheikh Tahnoun bin Zayed and has ties to Chinese firms that the US considers a security threat. Including with Huawei. According to the New York Times, the CIA fears that G42’s cooperation with Chinese companies could lead to G42 becoming a conduit for the transfer of classified American technology and genetic data. In addition, China will have access to an incredibly powerful supercomputer.
The bottom line is that Condor Galaxy will consist of several identical installations (CG1, CG-2, and so on), located in different countries. There will be nine of them in total, and only a few will be located in the United States. The CIA expresses concern about four, but does not specify where the four systems will be located.
Let us remind you that Condor Galaxy is a unique solution. Each of the CG clusters consists of 64 modules, with each module actually containing only one chip. We are talking about the Cerebras Wafer Scale Engine 2 (WSE-2) chip, which is the size of an iPad and contains 850,000 cores. As a result, only one CG system has a performance of 4 ExaFLOPS (FP16), and the total performance of the entire supercomputer will be an incredible 36 ExaFLOPS. This is very, very much, however, just today Nvidia and Amazon announced the construction of a Ceiba supercomputer with a performance of 65 ExaFLOPS in the same mode.
