Future Plans for AMD Chips



  • AMD outlines its future: 7nm GPUs with PCIe 4, Zen 2, Zen 3, Zen 4

    AMD is making the most of TSMC's 7nm process advantage over Intel.

    AMD today charted out its plans for the next few years of product development, with an array of new CPUs and GPUs in the development pipeline.

    On the GPU front are two new datacenter-oriented GPUs: the Radeon Instinct MI60 and MI50. Based on the Vega architecture and built on TSMC's 7nm process, the cards are aimed not primarily at graphics (despite what one might think given that they're called GPUs) but rather at machine learning, high-performance computing, and rendering applications....

    ...The cards also include built-in support for virtualization, allowing one card to be securely shared between multiple virtual machines. This makes it easier for cloud operators to offer GPU-accelerated virtual machines.... more on Ars technica
