AMD: Instinct MI300 APU with Zen 4 and CDNA 3 Up and Running in the Lab

Mark Papermaster, chief technology officer of AMD, said at a conference that the company’s next-generation Instinct MI300 accelerated processing unit for data centers and high-performance computing is already up and running in AMD’s labs. The APU uses AMD’s Zen 4 and CDNA 3 architectures and will power the El Capitan supercomputer that is expected to break the 2 ExaFLOPS barriers sometimes in 2024.

“But with what we announced and have rolled out with our next-generation Instinct that we already have back in the labs, the MI300, it is a true datacenter APU,” said (opens in new tab) Papermaster at the Wells Fargo 2022 TMT Summit (via SeekingAlpha (opens in new tab)). “It is a CPU and a GPU acceleration that is leveraging the Infinity architecture to share the same memory fully coherently. It is all sharing high-bandwidth memory.”
