I read a claim that it could be stronger in case of using 4 TPUs but the question is if it is designed to use this hardware.

If yes maybe somebody who has this hardware can test it.

The interrnet.
Nothing has more horsepower than that.
time multiplied by power = results
Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.
