New Buet 1.25 the performance of previous-generation processors.
Company Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) introduced its Radeon graphics processor Instinct MI60 for data centers. The chip is made for 7-nm process.
As stated by the representatives of AMD, the novelty Buet 1.25 the performance of previous-generation processors.
David Wang, senior Vice President of engineering at Radeon Technologies Group, said that the new product can reach is 7.4 teraflops of performance with 64-bit peak speed of floating point.
Wang said that the GPUs in the cloud will be useful for cloud gaming, virtual desktops and workstations, machine learning and high performance computing. The total available market is $ 12 billion by 2021, said Wang.
“The world’s first 7-nanometer graphics processor,” said Wang.
Accelerator Radeon Instinct MI60 is equipped with 32 GB of memory HBM2 with a bandwidth of 1 TB/s, Radeon Instinct MI50 – 16 GB with the same settings. Novelties first in the market support PCIe 4.0.
Despite the fact that Radeon Instinct not meant for ordinary consumers, this announcement shows that the company is ready to go on a 7 nanometer process technology. So soon you can expect the announcement of the line gaming graphics cards for the new standard. For comparison, the entire new line of graphics cards built on Nvidia RTX 12-nm process technology.
Wang said that the AMD chip can achieve comparable performance with a chip Nvidia Tesla PCIe V100. More important, as noted by Kevin Kivell analyst of Tirias Research, is that the crystal size of AMD (the chip size) is less than half the size of the chip Nvidia. This leads to a reduction of costs and prices.
Prices Radeon Instinct and MI60 MI50 is not yet known, and deliveries will begin later MI60 until the end of the year, and MI50 will appear in the first quarter of 2019.
