OpenAI’s Costly Price Tag: Keeping ChatGPT Running

Even running ChatGPT costs OpenAI an incredible amount every single day

The Information reported that OpenAI was paying $700,000.00 a day for its robust infrastructure, according to figures from SemiAnalysis.

Dylan Patel told the publication that the majority of the cost was due to the expensive servers the company requires.

Patel, in a subsequent interview with Insider, said that the costs could even be higher because the estimates were based upon GPT-3, which is the old model used to power the free version of ChatGPT.
