AMD develops GPU for exascale computing
The MI100 GPU is designed specifically for exascale high performance computing (HPC) rather than gaming says AMD
its latest CPUs and accelerators.”

“Dell EMC PowerEdge servers will support the new AMD Instinct MI100, which will enable faster insights from data. This would help our customers achieve more robust and efficient HPC and AI results rapidly,” said Ravi Pendekanti, senior vice president, PowerEdge Servers, Dell Technologies. "AMD has been a valued partner in our support for advancing innovation in the data center. The high-performance capabilities of AMD Instinct accelerators are a natural fit for our PowerEdge server AI & HPC portfolio.”

The technology has already been tested by HPC developers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the US.

“We’ve received early access to the MI100 accelerator, and the preliminary results are very encouraging. We’ve typically seen significant performance boosts, up to 2-3x compared to other GPUs,” said Bronson Messer, director of science, Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility. “What’s also important to recognize is the impact software has on performance. The fact that the ROCm open software platform and HIP developer tool are open source and work on a variety of platforms, it is something that we have been absolutely almost obsessed with since we fielded the very first hybrid CPU/GPU system.”
