GPT-4 successor reportedly a “major upgrade”



According to the Financial Times, Altman is in talks with Middle Eastern investors, including Sheikh Tahnoon bin Zayed al-Nahyan of the United Arab Emirates.

The goal is to develop chips needed for training and running AI models, and to reduce OpenAI’s dependence on Nvidia. Altman is also in talks with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC) about a chip manufacturing partnership.

It is unclear whether the chip venture will operate as a subsidiary of OpenAI or as a separate entity. However, OpenAI is expected to be the main customer of the new company.



According to the FT, OpenAI is working on a new AI model that will be a “major upgrade” to GPT-4 and is expected to be released later this year. At the World Economic Forum in Davos, Altman described GPT-4 as a “preview” of future developments. It also means that OpenAI’s reliance on AI chips will continue to grow.
