In late September, Microsoft announced a ton of software updates related to its AI efforts. One of them was that Bing Image Creator, its generative AI-based art maker, had been officially upgraded with the DALL-E 3 model from OpenAI as of late Friday, September 29, and was available for all of its users.

However, it looks like the addition of DALL-E 3 in Bing Image Creator has caused a big boost in the number of people accessing it, and as a result, the service can sometimes be slow in making images.

[...]

Parakhin stated that Microsoft is "bringing more GPUs in" and that should help to decrease the wait time "soon". When asked in a follow-up message just how many GPUs are being added, Parakhin responded with, "Measured in thousands of H100-equivalent."

That's a reference to NVIDIA's H100 GPUs, which have been made and bought by the boatload by Microsoft and other companies for use in their data centers specifically for generative AI services like Bing Chat and Bing Image Creator. Those sales have also caused NVIDIA's stock price to skyrocket in 2023.
