At SC23, we saw a number of next-gen AMD systems. While we know HPE-Cray and AMD are installing El Capitan a 2 Exaflop Supercomputer, we also got news this week that Microsoft was deploying large numbers of AMD’s MI300X GPUs. We thought folks may want to see the new high-end GPUs and APUs, so we snapped a few photos.
For those who need a quick refresher, the AMD Instinct MI300 family is a modular building block architecture where AMD combines GPU, CPU, HBM, and more into a 3D stacked package. AMD can vary the GPU and CPU tiles to achieve different types of configurations. Since AI is selling like hotcakes right now, the two most popular configurations we are likely to hear about in the near future are the MI300A which is one-quarter CPU and three-quarters GPU, and the MI300X which is all GPU.
First is the AMD Instinct MI300A. This is a large APU that we grabbed a photo of in June, but for some reason the dimensions did not register.
