AMD Radeon Instinct™ MI60

AMD beats Nvidia to the 7nm GPU finish line

The new 7nm EPYC "Rome" CPU is not the only announcement AMD has in store at their Next Horizon Event.

What are the Advantages of a 7nm Vega GPU?

Although the former isn't of much interest to us since the announced-so-far Vega graphics chips won't be made available to consumers, the CPU news is much more pressing as it furthers rumors that AMD's next-generation architecture will make it not only competitive with Intel on cost, but on overall raw power too.

Unleash discovery on the world's first 7nm accelerator. AMD is also able to pack more with 13.2B transistors on 331mm2. This is a significant jump from the 16GB HBM2 of the Radeon Instinct MI25. AMD's first foray into 7nm GPU territory isn't aimed at gamers-nobody's going to buy a Radeon Instinct card for their gaming PC, nor should anyone want to.

The flagship MI60 model is capable of 7.4 teraflops when working on 64-bit floating point data and has 32GB HBM2 memory with a bandwidth of up to 1Tbps. That kind of setup can deliver up to 200GB/s of peer-to-peer GPU bandwidth. AMD is also restructuring the Zen architecture for better memory latency, bandwidth support, and improved instruction implementation. While the Vega design remains relatively the same having 64 compute units and 4096 SPs, it also has additional Deep Learning operation instructions and optimized for the HPC market. The company is still playing catch up with its close rival, NVIDIA though but the performance gap between Radeon Instinct MI60 and NVIDIA Tesla V100 is apparently quite small. '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 hard cloud computing challenges today and into the future. It is about 2.8x faster than the MI25 on RESNET-50, with 498 images per second vs 179.
