AMD held its Financial Analyst Day today and the company offered up a broad overview of what we should expect in terms of roadmap technologies execution over the next few years. Some of the topics that were touched on included next-generation RDNA 2 Navi GPU architectures, completely new CDNA GPUs optimized for the data center, along with the planned roll-out of Zen 3 and Zen 4 processor families. Don't Call It "Big Navi" The tech industry has been referring to AMD's next-generation flagship discrete GPUs based on the RDNA 2 architecture as "Big Navi" for a while now. However, it appears that AMD would prefer that we not use that terminology, as it sells its next generation GPU architecture,... Read more...
AMD just announced today a design win in conjunction with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE), win which it will be providing the hardware powering the El Capitan exascale-class supercomputer. What caught our eye about this announcement was not the compute performance -- which will be enormous at 2 exaflops double precision -- but the CPUs and GPUs that will be inside. According to AMD, its next-generation Radeon Instinct GPU accelerators will be deployed featuring advanced high bandwidth memory (HBM). The company will also be using third-generation Infinity Fabric Architecture that provides a high-bandwidth, low-latency interconnect to string... Read more...
AMD is riding high on its Zen 2 CPU architecture, both on the desktop and in the server sector, and has managed to steal some market share from Intel because of its recent success. Lest anyone think AMD will now rest on its laurels, the company put that notion to rest during a recent HPC-AI Advisory Council conference in the UK. It was there that AMD revealed some interesting details about its future plans for its EPYC server chips. Zen 3 EPYC CPUs (codenamed "Milan") loom in the distance, and further out sits Zen 4 EPYC silicon (codenamed "Genoa"). It may feel a bit early to discuss server processors that are up to two generations away, given that AMD is currently scoring wins with its Zen 2... Read more...
