That would make a lot more sense, for sure. It would also explain the
25M USD number from Hassabis. That would be a lot of money to spend on
"only" 64 GPUs, or 4 TPU (which are supposed to be ~1 GPU).

There's no explanation where the number came from, but it seems that he
did similar math as in the original post here.
