AMD today is formally unveiling their AMD Instinct MI200 family of server accelerators. Based on AMD’s new CDNA 2 architecture, the MI200 family is the capstone AMD’s server GPU plans for the last half-decade. By combing their GPU architectural experience with the latest manufacturing technology from TSMC and home-grown technologies such as their chip-to-chip Infinity Fabric, AMD has put together their most potent server GPUs yet. And with MI200 parts already shipping to the US Department of Energy as part of the Frontier exascale supercomputer contract, AMD is hoping that success will open up new avenues into the server market for the company.
