AMD’s next-generation Zen 2 and Zen 3 based processors are all set to debut their desktop-grade and server-grade CPU market. However, reports have arrived stating that AMD is all set to debut its next-gen EPYC CPUs and Radeon Instinct GPUs in the Large Unified Modern Infrastructure supercomputer Kajaani, Finland.

HP or Hewlett Packard Enterprise announced the manufacturing of the LUMI supercomputer. The machine will be using the company’s HPE Cray EX architecture to deliver more than half the Exaflops of performance. The supercomputer is based in Finland and will be fully operational by late 2021. The LUMI will be among the top 5 supercomputers that will feature 1.5 to 2.5 Exaflops of computing horsepower.
