Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has long been one of the world's largest consumers of supercomputing capacity.

The two startups, which have collectively raised more than $1.8 billion in funding, are attempting to upend a market that has been dominated so far by off-the-shelf x86 central processing units and graphics processing units with hardware that's purpose-built for use in artificial intelligence model development and inference processing to run those models.
