AMD Instinct MI200 CDNA 2 GPU Powered Accelerator Reportedly Launching In 2021, Could Feature MCM Architecture
AMD launched its first CDNA GPU-based accelerator, the Instinct MI100, last year and the latest reports suggest that its successor, the MI200, could launch this year. The AMD Instinct accelerators feature the CDNA architecture that is designed for compute-intensive and HPC workloads and the 2nd gen of these chips is going to bring a lot of new features and technologies.
The details were posted by Komachi over at his Twitter feed and from the looks of it, the Instinct MI200 will be replacing the MI100 as the new flagship accelerator for HPC. Based on the naming convention itself, it looks like MI200 will be twice as fast as Instinct MI100 but to achieve this, AMD is expected to go all out with its MCM design.
