The Power of AMD Instinct™ MI210 Accelerator

The Power of AMD Instinct™ MI210 Accelerator

The AMD Instinct™ MI210 accelerator enables scientists and researchers to conquer the most critical challenges of formulating new vaccines and addressing climate change. This latest addition to the AMD Instinct™ MI200 series is engineered for high-performance computing for double precision (FP64) on PCIe form factors designed for data centers. AMAX accelerates data center workloads with the AceleMax DGS-214AI and DGS-428AI line of products for deep learning training and high power computing GPU processing. Assemble with AMD Exascale-class technologies, the 2nd Gen AMD CDNA architecture combined with the AMD ROCm 5 software system, which powers HPC and AI data center PCIe GPUs to advance the processing time for scientists and researchers in their data center.

 The M1210 Accelerator is created to expedite deep learning training. It supplies an extensive scale of mixed-precision capabilities power by the AMD Matric Core Technology, and it provides exceptional 181 teraflops and excellent FP16 and BF16 performance to present the user with a powerful performance to drive both HPC and AI. AMD ROCm is an open software platform that enables researchers to experience the high-performing power of the AMD Instinct™ MI210 accelerator to navigate through scientific discoveries. To send and receive information more efficiently, MI2210 Accelerator supports high-speed HPC parallel codes, enabling scientists and researchers worldwide.

The Cutting-edge Key Features of the AMD Instinct MI2210 Accelerator 

2nd Generation AMD CNDA Architecture
– The 2nd Generation AMD CNDA architecture embodies the MI2210 Accelerator drives significant performance for HPC and AI

Each of these tiers is progressive and is suitable for different business requirements. Data centers can move up and down the ranking system, and each tier includes the required components of all the tiers below it. Tiers 3 and 4 are considered the most reliable services, but that does not mean it is the most suitable tier for your data center. Failing to consider the right tier can lead to downtown issues or unnecessary expenses. It is recommended that all data centers get an evaluation for the Uptime Institute to determine what tier is most suitable for their facility.
