There is a bit of intrigue surrounding AMD's plans for the high performance computing (HPC) market, as it relates to its next round of GPU accelerators. Over on the consumer side, AMD is pushing is 7-nanometer Navi GPUs. In the HPC market, however, AMD might be recycling its Vega GPU architecture for its next batch of Radeon Instinct cards, due out next year. Leaks have pointed to these cards rocking Arcturus GPUs, and therein lies the intrigue. Arcturus made an appearance as back as 2018 in a Linux driver, where the codename was referenced alongside several Vega parts. At the time, it was thought Arcturus might be a successor to Navi. An AMD employee had confirmed the company would be using... Read more...
AMD has definitely been on an serious upswing in recent years thanks to its Zen CPU microarchitecture, and the company has gotten the attention from some big names in the computing industry. Now, AMD is definitely showing its computing muscle thanks to a collaboration with the Cray, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).  It has been announced that AMD's EPYC processors will power what will be the world's fastest exascale supercomputer. Called Frontier, this new supercomputer will deliver in excess of 1.5 exaflops of compute performance and will be delivered to ORNL rough two years from now. Although AMD is currently being a bit light... Read more...
AMD is announcing a new series of Radeon-branded products today, targeted at machine intelligence (AI) and deep learning enterprise applications, called Radeon Instinct. As its name suggests, the new Radeon Instinct line of products are comprised of GPU-based solutions for deep learning, inference, and training. The new GPUs are also complemented by a free, open-source library and framework for GPU accelerators, dubbed MIOpen. MIOpen is architected for high-performance machine intelligence applications, and is optimized for the deep learning frameworks in AMD’s ROCm software suite, which we recently talked about here. During a recent visit with AMD, it was noted that we generate roughly... Read more...
