Leadership AI & enterprise compute

AMD detailed its expanded multi-generational accelerator roadmap, showing how it plans to deliver performance and memory leadership on an annual cadence for generative AI. The expanded roadmap includes the AMD Instinct MI325X accelerators, with planned availability in Q4 2024, delivering industry leading memory capacity with 288GB of ultra-fast HBM3E memory1 that extends AMD generative AI performance leadership2. The next-generation AMD CDNA™ 4 architecture, expected in 2025, will power the AMD Instinct MI350 Series and is expected to drive up to 35x better AI inference performance compared to AMD Instinct MI300 Series with AMD CDNA 33. Continuing performance and feature improvements, the CDNA ‘Next’ architecture will power MI400 series accelerators planned for 2026.
