Recommended Posts



Clearly AMD is fulfilling CEO Lisa Su’s promise to build its data center business from HPC on down. MilanX and MI200 combine to deliver excellent HPC performance and scalability which will be substantiated in the Exascale systems being built and planned.


On the other hand, AI seems to have been relegated to a lower priority once again, both on the EPYC CPU when compared to Intel Sapphire Rapids and the GPU when compared to NVIDIA. While 20% better 16-bit floating point is nice to see, FLOPS is a poor performance predictor in the software-driven world of optimized AI acceleration.


All said, however, I cannot argue with AMD’s prioritization: as NVIDIA focuses more on AI, it has created vulnerability in HPC which AMD intends to exploit.
