The leading semiconductor manufacturer AMD’S Milan-X EPYC series processors could be expected at this conference. Judging from the latest news, this series of processors uses unique 3D V-cache technology (3D caches act as a rapid refresher, it uses a novel new hybrid bonding technique) even before the Vermeer-X consumer product line. The line is based on the Zen3 micro-architecture. We always put AMD vs. Intel in a clash to witness who is better but always ends up with neutral ideas; both AMD and Intel are relentlessly attempting to prove their side is in the better format. Whilst AMD is expected to launch its first machine based on (MCM) (Multi-Chip Module Design), even earlier than NVIDIA GH100 (Hopper) and Intel’s Ponte Vecchio (Xe-HPC).AMD is set to launch new HPC products on November 8 at the “Accelerated Data Center Premier”

AMD turned in the best quarter that we can remember, and is now firmly in place as the gadfly counterbalance to the former hegemony of Intel. And that is good for everyone who buys a game console, a PC, an edge device, and a server. And the game is only going to get more interesting with Intel getting its chip together and preparing for a long battle with AMD and other XPU usurpers in chip design and as well as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp in chip etching and packaging.
We do get some hints, however. Lisa Su, AMD’s president and chief executive officer, said that AMD’s datacenter business – at this point meaning Epyc CPUs and Instinct GPU accelerators – comprised more than 20 percent of the company’s overall sales, and the big driver in this quarter was not just second generation “Rome” Epyc 7002 and third generation “Milan” Epyc 7003 server chips – Rome is still outselling Milan, but the crossover is coming in the third quarter of this year – but the Radeon Instinct M100 GPU accelerators launched last fall. The datacenter GPU business more than doubled from a year ago, according to Su, and AMD expects it to continue to grow in the second half of the year as the 1.5 exaflops “Frontier” supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the United States, the as-yet-unnamed pre-exascale system at Pawsey Supercomputing Center in Australia, and the Lumi pre-exascale system in Finland all get their Radeon Instinct motors installed.the Next Platform “AMD is finally trusted in the Datacentre again”

AMD has today launched a new EPYC processor designed for the data center industry, cloud, and enterprise customers.
The AMD EPYC 7003 Series central processing units (CPUs) include up to 64 Zen 3 cores per processor, and also include the EPYC 7763 server processor for a performance and per-core cache memory boost. The 7003 series also includes PCIe 4 connectivity and eight memory channels per processor.
Security features include AMD Infinity Guard and a new feature called Secure Encrypted Virtualization-Secure Nested Paging (SEV-SNP). This adds memory integrity protection capabilities to create an isolated execution environment. This can help to prevent hypervisor-based attacks.
According to AMD, cloud providers can leverage the 7003 Series’ high core density, security features, and improved integer performance.
Further, high performance computing (HPC) customers can leverage the 7003 series’ faster time to recovery due to more I/O and memory throughput, and the Zen 3 cores.

If you wish to Intel MPI on AMD EPYC Servers, you have to change your MPI
-genv I_MPI_DEBUG=5 -genv I_MPI_PIN=1 -genv KMP_AFFINITY verbose,granularity=fine,compact
Explnation of Options:
(Enable debug output to print transport and pinning information)
(Enables Rank Pining. Use in conjunction with the previous options)
-genv KMP_AFFINITY verbose,granularity=fine,compact
( For more information, Thread Affinity Interface (Linux* and Windows*) )
- Open-source libraries and Intel MKL work well on AMD platform.
- For Intel MKL, please setup a proper environment variable “export MKL_DEBUG_CPU_TYPE =5 ” in your bashrc
