Id like to point out that this does not beat Nvidia A100, the title is just for clickbait. This chip does 250 TFlop of FP16, the A100 does 312TFlop (or 614TF with whatever "sparsity" is). The A100 also does a bunch of other things and can process higher precision floating point for the later parts of AI training. According to the article, this chip "beats the A100 in complexity", not performance. And by complexity they mean because it uses more transistors. This chip "competes with" the A100 in the same way a Radeon 7 Pro "competes" with an A100.
