An analyst estimating the daily costs of ChatGPT says that this AI chatbot needs a hefty budget.
Dylan Patel, the senior analyst of SemiAnalysis Institute, has revealed the costs of the JPT chat service in an exclusive report. He claims that maintaining ChatGPT costs OpenAI approximately $700,000 per day. On average, the price of each question you ask the chatbot in question is 36 cents.
According to the Digital Trends report, the high costs of ChatGPT have made Microsoft think of building a dedicated artificial intelligence processor to enable ChatGPT processing at a lower price.
Many popular social networks took several years to reach 100 million users, but ChatGPT achieved this historical record in about two months. Since then, ChatGPT traffic has become very heavy, and users sometimes encounter capacity-full errors.
To earn money and provide a more stable service, OpenAI announced that it would make the Plus version of ChatGPT available to users at a monthly price of $20. How many ChatGPT users have subscribed to the Plus service is unknown.
OpenAI uses Nvidia graphics chips to process ChatGPT and other services. Analysts estimate that OpenAI will need 30,000 new graphics chips this year alone to maintain its services.
