AMD to launch Instinct MI250X with 48 TFLOPS in FP64

ExecutableFix reveals the first details on MI200 series accelerators from AMD.

According to the leaker, AMD is to launch MI250 and MI250X Instinct accelerators, both based on Aldebaran GPU featuring CDNA2 architecture. The MI250X has been confirmed to feature 110 Compute Units and 128GB of HBM2e memory.

The leaker claims that the accelerator will have a TDP of 500W and will be built using a 7nm process architecture. With 110 Compute Units clocked at 1.7 GHz, the accelerator would offer 47.9 TFLOPs double-precision (FP64) and single-precision (FP32) compute performance and 383 TFLOPS in half-precision calculations (FP16/BF16).

The MI250X and MI200 are supposedly both based on Aldebaran GPU, except the MI250 non-X would have some CUs disabled. It would appear that the configuration of the cut-down part has not yet been confirmed. The MI250X may also be a higher clocked version, which would be a similar approach to NVIDIA SXM variants and their respective PCIe models.

The MI200/250/250 series are to compete with Intel Ponte Vecchio (Xe-HPC) and NVIDIA H100 accelerators, both expected to debut next year.
