AMD confirmed that there will be two chips for the CDNA 2 architecture GPU
At the 49th Global Technology, Media, and Communications Conference held by JPMorgan Chase before, AMD CEO Dr. Lisa Su briefly mentioned the CDNA 2 architecture and its products, saying that it will be launched within the year. According to previous rumors, the code name of the CDNA 2 architecture GPU is Aldebaran, and the product equipped with this GPU is likely to be the long-rumored Instinct MI200 computing card, specifically designed for computationally intensive and HPC workloads.
In the recent Linux kernel update, AMD engineers confirmed that the upcoming CDNA 2 architecture GPU will have two chips. It has long been reported that the CDNA 2 architecture GPU will use MCM (Multi-Chip-Module) packaging technology and the next generation of Infinity Fabric bus technology. Its competitors, NVIDIA Hopper architecture and Intel Xe-HP architecture GPU, most likely will use MCM packaging technology.
The AMD Instinct MI200 computing card is expected to be launched in the fourth quarter of this year and maybe manufactured using a 5nm process.
