On October 26, American multinational semiconductor company, AMD announced that it would conduct an “Accelerated Data Center Premier” event at 11 am ET, 8:30 pm IST on November 8, 2021, to exhibit its forthcoming AMD EPYC processor and AMD Instinct accelerator card.
Considering the latest news update from foreign media, the leading semiconductor manufacturer AMD’S Milan-X EPYC series processors could be expected at this conference. Judging from the latest news, this series of processors uses unique 3D V-cache technology (3D caches act as a rapid refresher, it uses a novel new hybrid bonding technique) even before the Vermeer-X consumer product line. The line is based on the Zen3 micro-architecture. We always put AMD vs. Intel in a clash to witness who is better but always ends up with neutral ideas; both AMD and Intel are relentlessly attempting to prove their side is in the better format. Whilst AMD is expected to launch its first machine based on (MCM) (Multi-Chip Module Design), even earlier than NVIDIA GH100 (Hopper) and Intel’s Ponte Vecchio (Xe-HPC).
IT ground has learned that the AMD Instinct MI250X accelerator card powered up with MCM GPU has 110 computing units,128GB HBM2e memory, and a 500W TDP design. Dr. Lisa Su, AMD President, and CEO, Forrest Norrod, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Data Center and Embedded Solutions Business Unit, and Dan McNamara, Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Server Business Unit, will give speeches at this virtual event.
It is noteworthy that AMD’s event is planned to be organized a day before NVIDIA’s GPU technology conference 2021. The event will take place for three days, Nov 8-11. NVIDIA CEO Huang Renxun will also release new AI technologies and products in the subsequent GTC keynote speech, which is serendipity.
