AMD Delivers ‘Supercomputing for All’ at SC17

At SC17, AMD and its ecosystem partners announce immediate availability of a suite of new, high performance systems powered by AMD EPYC™ CPUs and AMD Radeon Instinct™ GPUs to accelerate innovation in supercomputing. AMD combines this broad portfolio with software, featuring the new ROCm 1.7 open platform with updated development tools and libraries, enabling complete AMD EPYC-based PetaFLOPS systems. 

 By comprehensively supporting both heterogeneous supercomputing systems and memory-bound, CPU driven, high performance platforms with EPYC, AMD uniquely addresses the needs of multiple workloads with up to a 3X advantage in performance per dollar for the EPYC 7601 vs the Intel Xeon Platinum 8180M1. Target workloads for AMD solutions include machine learning, weather modeling, computational fluid dynamics, simulation and crash analysis in aviation and automotive manufacturing, oil and gas exploration, and more.
