    AMD announces '30x by 2025' AI and HPC efficiency goal

    The ambition should mean that AMD will outpace the industry by 150 per cent.

    Will the price also go up by 30X too??

    Yeah but.... Intel will announce 60X shortly no doubt.

    tbh I think it's more than doable even without the 30x price increase .

    It was shown with dedicated cpu's for things like bitcoin mining that dedicated hardware can reduce the power draw relatve to performace quite considerably.

    In the right programs it's far more efficient to run a multiple gpu's and make use of cuda for things like 3D rendering compared with the older approach of lots of cpu cores.

    So I'd expect to see more 'AI cores' added to the cpu designs, similar to what Apple did with the M1 design, which are dedicated to certain tasks and can do it much faster than the universal 'main cores'

    That sort of AI chippery has been in phones for years, but that isn't what AMD are talking about here.

    Training a deep learning net is really really computationally expensive. The stuff on phones is just using a trained net, where you can take a lot of shortcuts.

    The thing is, I don't see how the AI training market is all that large. Not when the likes of Google make their own silicon. So that gets us to where we already are, tweaks on existing GPUs to train networks. Things like HBM and lots of ram help, and that trick where AMD attached an SSD to the GPU,

    I wonder if part of this is thanks to Samsung using AMD's GPU designs. That may have focused somewhat on lower power usage.

    Aggressive strategy, going to blow Intel out of the water, I like it!
