AMD teases 7nm Vega for machine learning in 2018
     Wed, Jan 10 2018 | 2:32P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink

This product will target the machine learning market, with hardware and platform optimizations key to that segment. AMD mentions “new DL Ops”, or deep learning operations, but the company didn’t expand on that.

AMD will integrate a new IO, likely to compete with NVLink, and MxGPU support for dividing resources efficiently for virtualization.
