AMD unveils 7nm data centre GPUs
AMD Radeon Instinct MI60 and MI50 accelerators power AI, cloud computing and high performance computing
Chip designer AMD, has unveiled the AMD Radeon Instinct MI60 and MI50 accelerators, the first 7nm data centre GPUs, designed to deliver the compute performance required for next-generation deep learning, HPC, cloud computing and rendering applications.
The company said researchers, scientists and developers will use AMD Radeon Instinct accelerators to solve tough and interesting challenges, including large-scale simulations, climate change, computational biology, disease prevention and more.
David Wang, senior vice president, Engineering, Radeon Technologies Group at AMD, said legacy GPU architectures limit IT managers from effectively addressing the constantly evolving demands of processing and analysing huge datasets for modern cloud data centre workloads. “Combining world-class performance and a flexible architecture with a robust software platform and the industry’s leading-edge ROCm open software ecosystem, the new AMD Radeon Instinct accelerators provide the critical components needed to solve the most difficult cloud computing challenges today and into the future,” he said.
The AMD Radeon Instinct MI60 and MI50 accelerators feature flexible mixed-precision capabilities, powered by high-performance compute units that expand the types of workloads these accelerators can address, including a range of HPC and deep learning applications. The new AMD Radeon Instinct MI60 and MI50 accelerators were designed to efficiently process workloads such as rapidly training complex neural networks, delivering higher levels of floating-point performance, greater efficiencies and new features for data centre and departmental deployments.
