The updated roadmap starts with the new AMD Instinct MI325X accelerator, which will be available in Q4 2024. Following that, the AMD Instinct MI350 series, powered by the new AMD CDNA™ 4 architecture, is expected to be available in 2025 bringing up to a 35x increase in AI inference performance compared to AMD Instinct MI300 Series with AMD CDNA 3 architecture1. Expected to arrive in 2026, the AMD Instinct MI400 series is based on the AMD CDNA “Next” architecture.

“The AMD Instinct MI300X accelerators continue their strong adoption from numerous partners and customers including Microsoft Azure, Meta, Dell Technologies, HPE, Lenovo and others, a direct result of the AMD Instinct MI300X accelerator exceptional performance and value proposition,” said Brad McCredie, corporate vice president, Data Center Accelerated Compute, AMD. “With our updated annual cadence of products, we are relentless in our pace of innovation, providing the leadership capabilities and performance the AI industry and our customers expect to drive the next evolution of data center AI training and inference.”

AMD AI Software Ecosystem Matures
The AMD ROCm™ 6 open software stack continues to mature, enabling AMD Instinct MI300X accelerators to drive impressive performance for some of the most popular LLMs. On a server using eight AMD Instinct MI300X accelerators and ROCm 6 running Meta Llama-3 70B, customers can get 1.3x better inference performance and token generation compared to the competition2. On a single AMD Instinct MI300X accelerator with ROCm 6, customers can get better inference performance and token generation throughput compared to the competition by 1.2x on Mistral-7B3. AMD also highlighted that Hugging Face, the largest and most popular repository for AI models, is now testing 700,000 of their most popular models nightly to ensure they work out of box on AMD Instinct MI300X accelerators. In addition, AMD is continuing its upstream work into popular AI frameworks like PyTorch, TensorFlow and JAX.

AMD Previews New Accelerators and Reveals Annual Cadence Roadmap
During the keynote, AMD revealed an updated annual cadence for the AMD Instinct accelerator roadmap to meet the growing demand for more AI compute. This will help ensure that AMD Instinct accelerators propel the development of next-generation frontier AI models. The updated AMD Instinct annual roadmap highlighted:
