AMD shares new CPU, NPU (neural processing unit) and GPU (graphics processing unit) architectures powering end-to-end artificial intelligence infrastructure from the data center to PCs. AMD unveiled an expanded AMD Instinct accelerator roadmap, introducing the AMD Instinct MI325X accelerator with memory capacity planned to be available in Q4 2024.

AMD also is previewing the 5th Gen AMD EPYC server processors, on track to launch in the latter half of 2024. AMD announced AMD Ryzen AI 300 Series, the third generation of AMD AI-enabled mobile processors, and AMD Ryzen 9000 Series processors for laptop and desktop PCs, respectively. 

“This is an incredibly exciting time for AMD as the rapid and accelerating adoption of AI is driving increased demand for our high-performance computing platforms,” says Dr. Lisa Su, chair and CEO at AMD. “At Computex, we were proud to be joined by Microsoft, HP, Lenovo, Asus and other strategic partners to launch our next-generation Ryzen desktop and notebook processors, preview the leadership performance of our next-generation EPYC processors, and announce a new annual cadence for AMD Instinct AI accelerators.”

“We are in the midst of a massive AI platform shift, with the promise to transform how we live and work. That’s why our deep partnership with AMD, which has spanned multiple computing platforms, from the PC to custom silicon for Xbox, and now to AI, is so important to us,” says Satya Nadella, Chairman and CEO of Microsoft.

AI and Enterprise Compute for the Data Center

AMD detailed its expanded multigenerational accelerator roadmap. The expanded roadmap includes the AMD Instinct MI325X accelerators, with planned availability in Q4 2024, delivering memory capacity with 288GB of ultra-fast HBM3E memory that extends AMD generative AI performance leadership. The next-generation AMD CDNA 4 architecture, expected in 2025, will power the AMD Instinct MI350 Series. The CDNA “Next” architecture will power MI400 series accelerators planned for 2026.

The 5th Gen AMD EPYC processors (codenamed “Turin”) will leverage the “Zen 5” core and enhance the performance and efficiency of the AMD EPYC processor family. 5th Gen AMD EPYC processors are targeted for availability in second half of 2024. 

AMD has detailed its next generation “Zen 5” CPU core. AMD also unveiled the AMD XDNA 2 NPU core architecture. The AMD XDNA 2 architecture-based NPU is an NPU supporting advanced Block FP16 data type. Together, “Zen 5,” AMD XDNA 2 and AMD RDNA 3.5 graphics enable next-gen AI experiences in laptops powered by AMD Ryzen AI 300 Series processors.

AMD also unveiled the AMD Ryzen 9000 Series desktop processors based on the “Zen 5” architecture.

Separately, AMD also announced the AMD Radeon PRO W7900 Dual Slot workstation graphics card. AMD also unveiled AMD ROC 6.1 for AMD Radeon GPUs, designed to make AI development and deployment with AMD Radeon desktop GPUs more compatible, accessible and scalable, the company reports.

Powering Edge AI Innovation

The new AMD Versal AI Edge Series Gen 2 brings together field-programmable gate array programmable logic for real-time pre-processing, next-gen AI Engines powered by XDNA technology for efficient AI inference, and embedded CPUs for post-processing to deliver the highest performing single chip adaptive solution for edge AI. AMD Versal AI Edge Gen 2 devices are available now for early access with over 30 key partners currently in development.
