Huawei and Peng Cheng Laboratory jointly released Peng Cheng Cloud Brain II Phase 1, officially launching the journey to AI clusters at 1000 petaFLOPS scale. Running at the bedrock of Cloud Brain II is the Huawei Atlas 900 AI cluster, powered by the Huawei Kunpeng and Ascend processors. Atlas 900 infuses robust computing power into Cloud Brain II, supporting basic research and exploration in the AI field, such as computer vision, natural language, autonomous driving, smart transportation, and smart healthcare. The computing power of Peng Cheng Cloud Brain is currently 100 PFLOPS, planned to scale to 1000 PFLOPS and higher next year.

Peng Cheng Cloud Brain is a key technology facility in the field of AI. It is a basic research platform for exploring the frontier of AI technology. Currently it boasts an AI computing power of 100 PFLOPS, and is expected to reach 1000 PFLOPS scale in the Cloud Brain II project next year.

The Atlas 900 AI cluster has inherited Huawei's technology know-how of over a decade. Composed of thousands of Ascend 910 AI processors, Atlas 900 completes training of a ResNet image classification model in 59.8s, 10 seconds faster than the previous world record at the same precision. The powerful computing capability of Atlas 900 delivers a difference in scientific research and technology innovation, such as astronomical exploration, weather forecasting, autonomous driving, and oil exploration.
