'Supercomputing for all' with AMD EPYC

AMD declares the accessibility of new, elite EPYC-based PetaFLOPS frameworks.







AMD is kicking its EPYC processors into high apparatus by declaring at SuperComputing 17 that is has a few OEMs, wholesalers, and framework integrators prepared to convey EPYC-based frameworks fit for conveyance PetaFLOPS of execution.

One framework integrator, AMAX, has built up the [SMART]Rack P47, a comprehensive elite rackscale apparatus that fuses 20x P47 stages to give up to a PetaFLOPS of single accuracy register execution and more than 10 terabytes of DDR4 memory in each rack. 

Each P47 framework includes a solitary EPYC 7000 arrangement CPU alongside four Radeon Instinct MI25 GPUs, each of which is fit for conveying up to 12.3 TFLOPS of single accuracy execution. 

A solitary EPYC 7601 offers three times the execution for each dollar contrasted with Intel's Xeon Platinum 8180M chip. 

"As an elite innovation supplier empowering endeavors to close the hole between scale up execution, figure thickness and cost, AMAX sees the P47 as a distinct advantage," said Julia Shih, VP of Business Development, AMAX. "Beginning from a solitary P47 stage, we can scale upwards to supercomputing-class execution by utilizing AMD EPYC, AMD Radeon Instinct, and the ROCm programming stage to help Deep Learning, rendering, and a large group of different workloads. The [SMART]Rack P47 is the primary turnkey PetaFLOPS-in-a-Rack arrangement outfitted towards specialized execution and business speeding up, wedded effortlessly of utilization. We are eager to declare that we are presently taking pre-orders for both the P47 server and the completely incorporated [SMART]Rack P47, with conveyance evaluated in Q1 of 2018." 

The OEMs and framework integrators with EPYC frameworks in their lineup incorporate Asus, BOXX, Gigabyte, HPE, Penguin, Silicon Mechanics, Supermicro, Synnex, and Tyan. 

One eminent nonappearance in the lineup of OEMs is Dell. 

"The business' driving framework suppliers are here at SC17 with a full broadness of AMD-based arrangements that convey exceptional register capacity crosswise over HPC workloads," said Forrest Norrod, senior VP and general director of big business, installed and semicustom items, AMD. "The energy of the AMD portfolio is additionally underscored by speculations we made in our open stage approach. Just AMD offers elite CPU and GPU items, alongside a totally open source programming advancement condition with ROCm." 

AMD has additionally reported that ROCm, its open-figure stage for designs, is getting a refresh. Adaptation 1.7 highlights multi-GPU bolster for the most recent Radeon GPU equipment, and incorporates bolster for TensorFlow and Caffe.
