AMD Unveils World’s Fastest GPU in FP64

After the RX 6000, AMD unveils its new data centre GPU: AMD Instinct MI100 the first board to exceed 10 TFLOPS in FP64

AMD MI100: the beginning of CDNA architecture.

Earlier this year, AMD unveiled its new graphics architecture for data centres, named CDNA, oriented for calculation. Based in part on GCN architecture, the MI100 is 7nm and has 120 CU, coupled with 32 GB ofHBM2 reaching a bandwidth of 1.23 TB/s. All this is contained in a 300W TDP.

Powered in CU and accompanied by a new technology called Matrix Core, the MI100 achieves very good performance and becomes the fastest GPU in double precision (FP64 ) with 11.5 TFLOPS and up to 184.6 TFLOPS in FP16 ( with Matrix). This board is positioned as a competitor to the Nvidia A100, offering in pure performance or performance per dollar, higher figures in FP64 and FP32. The MI100 supports ROCm 4.0, a complete solution of open source tools (Compilers, libraries, etc.) for machine learning or HPC (High performance computing). The card will arrive at the end of the year at the partners (Dell , HPE , SuperMicro , Gigabyte ) and it should equip the Frontier supercomputer.

New information on Milan.

At the same time as the launch of the MI100, AMD took the opportunity to talk briefly about the next Epyc Milan. The first deliveries should take place at the end of the year. However, they will only be truly available in the first quarter of 2021 from OEMs. Epy Milan This new generation, using the Zen 3 architecture, will allow an increase inCPI of 19% and in frequency. For the rest, the specifications remain identical to the Epyc Rome, with up to 64 cores and 128 threads and TDPs ranging from 120W to 280W.
