This GPU is built on “Enhanced” Vega architecture that includes 64 compute unit with 4096 stream processors and 32GB of HBM2 along with 1TB/sec of memory bandwidth. There will be another variant named Instinct MI50 with 60 CUs, 3840 SPs, and 16GB ECC HMB2. It will be first PCIe 4.0-capable GPUs that has double bandwidth over PCIe 3.0 solutions. The next generation Infinity Fabric Link tech allow a peer to peer GPU communication at 200GB/s.

When it comes to performance, AMD says that Radeon Instinct MI60 offers 14.7 TFLOPS FP32 and 7.4 TFLOPS FP64 compute. The Instinct MI50 pares those numbers down to 13.4 TFLOPS and 6.7 TFLOPS respectively.

These Radeon Instinct cards are especially for HPC and deep learning apps and they don’t have a display port. So if you were planning to buy one for gaming your are out of luck.

“Legacy GPU architectures limit IT managers from effectively addressing the constantly evolving demands of processing and analyzing huge datasets for modern cloud datacenter workloads,” said Wang. “Combining world-class performance and a flexible architecture with a robust software platform and the industry’s leading-edge ROCm open software ecosystem, the new AMD Radeon Instinct accelerators provide the critical components needed to solve the most difficult cloud computing challenges today and into the future.”
