AMD teases 7nm Vega for machine learning in 2018
     Wed, Jan 10 2018 | 2:32P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
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. It could mean it will integrate Tensor Core style compute units (as NVIDIA did on the Volta architecture) or it may be something more unique. AMD will integrate a new IO, likely to compete with NVLink, and MxGPU support for dividing resources efficiently for virtualization.
