Nvidia’s Custom GPUs

PLUS: Silicon Valley's Housing, Google One’s AI

Welcome humans, here’s your 3-minute recap (without the fluff):

  • Nvidia invests $30 billion in application-specific chips for AI, cloud, and more

  • Silicon Valley's comeback: AI boom brings tech workers back, fueling fast home sales

  • Google One gets smarter: New AI Premium plan powered by Gemini model

  • New tools, funding updates & job postings

AI-enabled productivity tools are catching fire with users, and converting bulky documents into a svelte TL;DR is a huge reason they are so popular. 

The only catch? Text summarization is an expensive process for an LLM. If you’re scaling your summarization features around GPT, you’re leaving money on the table by not exploring Mixtral as a cheaper alternative.

Enter OctoAI: The fastest place to run open source models and where you’ll find the most cost-effective Mixtral on the market. You can swap in Mixtral for any GPT in just three lines of code.

Their benchmarks show over 50% cost savings versus GPT 3.5 with comparable quality. What could that do for your bottom line?
