Additionally, Microsoft is working with the PyTorch Core team and the AMD data center software team to optimize the performance and developer experience for customers running PyTorch on Azure, ensuring that developers’ PyTorch projects take advantage of the performance and features of AMD Instinct accelerators.
AMD Instinct MI200 accelerators join the numerous AMD products being used at Microsoft Azure including the newly announced Azure HBv3 virtual machines which use 3rd Gen AMD EPYC processors with AMD 3D V-Cache Technology, and many other instances for confidential computing, general-purpose workloads, memory-bound workloads, visual workloads and more.
