AMD expands partner ecosystem, announces availability of Instinct MI210 accelerator

AMD’s Instinct and ROCm ecosystem combination aims to offer exascale-class technology to a broad range of customers

AMD has announced availability of its AMD Instinct ecosystem with expanded system support from a range of partners, alongside its new Instinct MI210 accelerator and ROCm 5 software.

The chipmaker says the AMD Instinct and ROCm ecosystem offers exascale-class technology to a broad base of HPC and AI customers, addressing the growing demand for compute-accelerated data centre workloads, as well as reducing the time to insights and discovery.

“With twice the platforms available compared to our previous generation accelerators, growing customer adoption across HPC and AI applications, and new support from commercial ISVs in key workloads, we’re continuing to drive adoption of the AMD Instinct MI200 accelerators and ROCm 5 software ecosystem,” explained Brad McCredie, corporate vice president, Data Center GPU and Accelerated Processing at AMD.

The MI200 series is designed to power discoveries in exascale systems, which AMD says helps enable researchers, scientists, and engineers to tackle challenges such as climate change and vaccine research.

Powered by the AMD CDNA 2 architecture, the new AMD Instinct MI210 model has been specifically designed to enable exascale-class technologies for customers that need strong HPC and AI performance in a PCIe format, the chipmaker says.

“Now with the availability of the AMD Instinct MI210 accelerator to the MI200 family, our customers can choose the accelerator that works best for their workloads, whether they need leading-edge accelerated processing for large scale HPC and AI workloads, or if they want access to exascale-class technology in a commercial format,” McCredie added.

AMD is also introducing ROCm 5, extending the open software platform with new hardware support for the Instinct MI200 and the AMD Radeon PRO W6800 profession graphics card, as well as Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.5 support.

“Additionally, through the AMD Infinity Hub, the central location for open-source applications that are ported and optimized on AMD GPUs, end-users can easily find, download and install containerized HPC apps and ML frameworks,” AMD said in a release.

In terms of partner support, the chipmaker has added more commercial ISVs - including Ansys, Cascade Technologies and TempoQuest - which provide applications for accelerated workloads such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), weather forecasting and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE).

AMD said it is also enabling partners like ASUS, Dell Technologies, Gigabyte, HPE, Lenovo, Supermicro - as well as System Integrators including Colfax, Exxact, KOI Computers, Nor-Tech, Penguin and Symmetric - to offer differentiated solutions to “address next generation computing challenges”.
