OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, as we previously reported, is seeking investment to build factories specifically designed to produce chips for AI accelerators. It turned out that Altman’s vision was the need to allocate colossal funds for this.

This will clearly change the world.  OpenAI CEO Sam Altman is seeking $5-7 trillion in investment to build factories to produce chips for AI accelerators

Yes, factories for the production of semiconductors using modern technical processes can cost billions of dollars, and sometimes 20-30 billion. But The Wall Street Journal resource says that Altman is looking for several trillion dollars!

More precisely, the project could allegedly require 5-7 trillion dollars. How many factories, according to the project of the head of OpenAI, can be built with that kind of money is not reported, but this is clearly an incredible number by modern standards.

To better appreciate how gigantic this sum is, the entire semiconductor industry as a whole earned $527 billion last year and is projected to reach $1 trillion by 2030 alone.

Altman is reportedly exploring the possibility of forming a joint venture that would bring together OpenAI, various investors involved in the project, contract semiconductor manufacturers and electricity suppliers. OpenAI itself is committed to becoming an important customer for these companies.

It’s also worth noting that the new factories will actually be run by existing companies specializing in this area. Primarily TSMC.

You also need to understand that the project is clearly focused on the construction of not only the factories themselves, but also infrastructure, including energy. And even taking into account the fact that there is no data on the time frame within which Altman plans to build all these factories if successful, this project, if it is implemented, will radically change the entire semiconductor industry, and even the impact of all this number of AI chips on the world one can only guess.

How much does it cost to repair Xiaomi 14 Ultra

Xiaomi 14 Ultra has just gone on sale in China, but Xiaomi has already published the official price list for spare parts so that users understand how much it will cost to repair the device out of warranty.

How much does it cost to repair Xiaomi 14 Ultra?  The official price list for spare parts has been published

Despite the fact that Xiaomi 14 Ultra is currently the pinnacle of the Chinese company’s smartphone manufacturing, repair prices are approximately at the level of other flagships. Replacing the motherboard will cost the most – from 380 to 420 dollars, depending on the amount of memory soldered on it. Out-of-warranty replacement of the screen will cost $190, battery – $25, back cover – $40. Replacing the front camera is $10, speaker replacement is $5.

As for the camera, this is interesting. Replacing the main module with an inch Sony LYT-900 image sensor will cost $140! Replacement of a module with an ultra-wide-angle lens is $70, replacement of a module with a telephoto lens is only $25. And this is quite strange, since these modules use the same Sony IMX858 sensors, and the module with a telephoto lens is more complex due to the presence of an OIS system.
