AMD beats Nvidia to the 7nm GPU finish line

AMD beats Nvidia to the 7nm GPU finish line

AMD's Next Horizon event this week detailed elements of its 7nm production schedule for both graphics cards and CPUs.

When it comes to specifications, the 7nm Vega GPU packs 3.2B transistors on a 331 mm2 die, with flexible, high-performance compute engine capable of covering different workloads, scalable interconnect and communications and end-to-end ECC enablement.

Ariana Grande Sings "thank u, next" & Trips On Her Heels On 'Ellen'
That was unbelievable ! That was awesome. "We support you", host Ellen DeGeneres said after the song. Is Grande innocently celebrating her friendships? Ch-ch-check out the full performance (below)!

Unleash discovery on the world's first 7nm accelerator. While AMD claims the design handily beats Intel's Xeon Platinum 8180M at the C-Ray benchmark, though, the company has taken the unusual step of redacting full benchmark results until after the chip has launched. This allows them to push the performance up 1.25x at the same power envelope, while consuming 50% lower power at the same frequency. The new AMD Radeon Instinct™ MI60 accelerator includes optimized deep learning operations and supercharged compute capabilities to meet today's demanding requirements for handling large data efficiently for training complex neural networks and running inference against them. The Radeon Instinct MI60 comes with 32GB of HMB2, and has both RAS support, MxGPU (HW SR-IOV) support for secure virtualized workload, and has a 300W TDP.

AMD is also the first to hit PCIe 4.0 on the Radeon Instinct MI60, with 64GB/sec of bi-directional CPU-to-GPU bandwidth. That kind of setup can deliver up to 200GB/s of peer-to-peer GPU bandwidth. The extra HBM2 stacks and memory bandwidth likely won't fix AMD's performance deficit, where the GTX 1080 Ti is about 40 percent faster than Vega 64, never mind the RTX 2080 Ti. 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. In terms maximum theoretical compute power, AMD claims up to 118 TFLOPS in INT4. '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.
