  • The software giant has been developing the chip, internally code-named Athena, since as early as 2019

  • The chips are already available to a small group of Microsoft and OpenAI employees, who are testing the technology

  • Microsoft is hoping the chip will perform better than what it currently buys from other vendors, saving it time and money on its costly AI efforts. Other prominent tech companies, including Amazon, Google and Facebook, also make their own in-house chips for AI.
