AMD’s multi-chip based Instinct™ MI200 Series GPUs launched back at its AMD Accelerated Data Center Premiere event has finally been announced for general availability. The Red team has expanded system support from partners including ASUS, Dell Technologies, Gigabyte, HPE, Lenovo and Supermicro.

This is complemented by the robust capabilities of ROCm™ 5 software, providing an ecosystem that is offering exascale-class technology to a broad base of HPC and AI customers, addressing the growing demand for compute-accelerated data centre workloads and reducing the time to insights and discovery. 

“With twice the platforms available compared to our previous generation accelerators, growing customer adoption across HPC and AI applications, and new support from commercial ISVs in key workloads, we’re continuing to drive adoption of the AMD Instinct MI200 accelerators and ROCm 5 software ecosystem,” said Brad McCredie, corporate vice president, Data Center GPU and Accelerated Processing, AMD.

“Now with the availability of the AMD Instinct MI210 accelerator to the MI200 family, our customers can choose the accelerator that works best for their workloads, whether they need leading-edge accelerated processing for large scale HPC and AI workloads, or if they want access to exascale-class technology in a commercial format.” 

“The Lumi supercomputer powered by AMD EPYC processors and AMD Instinct MI200 accelerators will provide a generational leap in performance for large-scale simulations and modelling as well as AI and deep learning workloads to solve some of the biggest questions in research”, said Pekka Manninen, Director of the LUMI Leadership and Computing Facility, CSC. “We’ve utilized AMD Instinct MI210 accelerators to get hands-on experience with the Instinct MI200 family, preparing our scientists to tackle the many challenging and complex projects they will run once Lumi is fully deployed.”

Powering The Future of HPC

  • Hardware: The AMD Instinct MI200 series accelerators are designed to power discoveries in Exascale systems, enabling researchers, scientists and engineers to tackle our most pressing challenges from climate change to vaccine research.
  • ROCm Adoption: With ROCm 5.0, AMD extends its platform powering top HPC and AI applications with new hardware support for the AMD Instinct MI200 Series accelerators and the AMD Radeon PRO W6800 professional graphics card, increasing accessibility of ROCm for developers and delivering outstanding performance across key workloads.
  • Partner Ecosystem: AMD has seen a multifold increase in partners of its AMD Instinct and AMD ROCm:
    • Commercial ISVs for accelerated workloads including CFD, weather, CAE and more. Application support for AMD Instinct now includes HPC, AI and Machine Learning applications including AMBER, Chroma, CP2K, GRID, GROMACs, LAAMPS, MILC, Mini-HAAC, NAMD, NAMD 3.0, ONNX-RT, OpenMM, PyTorch, RELION, SPECFEB3D Cartesian, SPECFEM3D Globe, and TensorFlow.
    • Partner ecosystem includes ASUS, Dell Technologies, Gigabyte, HPE, Lenovo, Supermicro, and System Integrators including Colfax, Exxact, KOI Computers, Nor-Tech, Penguin and Symmetric.

AMD is offering up to 220 CUs, 128GB HBM2e memory and 560W TDP, built on the new AMD CDNA™ 2 architecture and these new GPUs are said to deliver a ground-breaking 4.9x advantage in HPC performance compared to competing data centre accelerators (Nvidia Ampere A100 (80GB)) GPU accelerator, expediting science and discovery.

Not only this, the MI200 series accelerators are the first multi-die GPU, the first to support 128GB of HBM2e memory, and deliver a substantial boost for applications critical to the foundation of science. The new AMD Instinct™ MI200 series accelerators are the first exascale-class GPU accelerators.

The AMD Instinct MI200 series accelerators include the world’s fastest high-performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) accelerator, the AMD Instinct™ MI250X. The AMD Instinct MI250X accelerator provides up to 4.9X better performance than competitive accelerators for double precision (FP64) HPC applications and surpasses 380 teraflops of peak theoretical half-precision (FP16) for AI workloads to enable disruptive approaches in further accelerating data-driven research.

Now, companies can procure such horsepower using these new AMD Instinct MI200 GPUs from partners of AMD like ASUS, Dell Technologies and others. What do you think about these new multi-chip based GPUs? Let us know in the comments down below…😉
