Deep learning and HPC servers powered by AMD EPYC and Radeon InstinctJuly 3, 2018
Deep learning and high-performance compute is just another milestone for AMD with the introduction of ready-to-deploy server platforms from their partners that are powered by Radeon Instinct and EPYC processors. These new solutions continue AMD’s recent momentum in compute, following the demonstration of 7nm Radeon “Vega” professional/datacenter graphics and announcement of the next generation 7nm EPYC processor codenamed, “Rome,” shipping later this year.
The systems can easily be configured with the latest ROCm drivers and MIOpen libraries, giving customers the option of different deep learning frameworks such as TensorFlow or Caffe. New solutions include:
- AMAX ServMax P47 system: Ready-to-deploy TensorFlow or Caffe deep learning compute solution in a 2U AMD EPYC processor server with 4x Radeon Instinct MI25 compute GPUs
- Inventec P47G4: Optimal, deep learning solution featuring 2U single-socket AMD EPYC processor server with 4x Radeon Instinct MI25 compute GPUs
- Supermicro SuperServer 4029GP-TRT2 : Ultimate, single-root deep learning accelerated solution featuring a 4U Dual Intel Xeon processor server with 8x Radeon Instinct MI25 compute GPUs
- Exxact Tensor TS4-672702-AML: Fast and easy deep learning deployment on optimal single root complex design in a 4U dual Intel Xeon processor server with 8x Radeon Instinct MI25 compute GPUs
AMD EPYC 7000 Series Wins Praise for its High-Performance and Advanced Features
AMD also announced The National Institute for Nuclear Physics (INFN) in Italy has chosen the AMD EPYC 7351 processor to power its high-performance computing cluster. INFN is a leading European research institution, conducting theoretical and experimental research in the fields of subnuclear, nuclear, and astroparticle physics while offering access to its exceptional processing resources across Europe.
