Meet the AMD Radeon Instinct MI60 and MI50 accelerators

Meet the AMD Radeon Instinct MI60 and MI50 accelerators

Last night, AMD held its "Next Horizon" event in San Francisco and proudly launched the world's first 7nm graphics cards in an effort to continue breaching the datacenter market. "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".

What are the Advantages of a 7nm Vega GPU?

The move to 7nm allows AMD to take full advantage of the Vega architecture. The new node allows the chip to be twice as dense while using 50 percent less power. These will be the first PCIe 4.0-capable GPUs, doubling bandwidth over PCIe 3.0 solutions. There will also be a slightly less potent Instinct MI50 with 60 CUs, 3840 SPs, and 16GB ECC HMB2. That translates to 64GB/s Bi-directional CPU-to-GPU bandwidth.

The big part of the new Vega 7nm Radeon Instinct announcement was the announcement for a new version of the ROCm open software platform, which will bring both support for new Radeon Instinct accelerators as well as updated libraries, support for 64-bit Linux operating systems, bunch of optimizations, and support for latest versions of deep learning frameworks like TensorFlow 1.11, PyTorch (Caffe2) and others.

AMD also throws in some large number with claims of 7.4 TFLOPS FP64 double precision compute and 14.7 TFLOPS FP32, single precision compute.

AMD has also provided some internal benchmarks which are quite significant, comparing the performance improvement of the new Radeon Instinct MI60 to the previous generation's MI25 accelerator. It is about 2.8x faster than the MI25 on RESNET-50, with 498 images per second vs 179.
