HPe has been running these posts and also promoting them on Twitter.

The linked blog starts with:
"HPE and AMD are preparing organizations to enter the next era of compute with unmatched performance. Our solutions that include the latest supercomputing technologies to modernize your IT environment and keep it resilient for years."

I wonder if HP is planning on selling Frontier units to commercial. It does not specify which version of Instinct...

They effectively blocked the Qualcomm/NXP merger. Why do you think that is so much different? They don't have any effective power over a euro company either.

It all comes down to whether you want to play in a 1.4B consumer marketplace or not.

But every time China uses this power arbitrarily and capriciously, the power diminishes. I don't see China using up its ammo on AMD / Xilinx deal...

Superb presenter from the Radeon team announces RX 6600 XT:



After watching that I almost wanted one for myself (though I'm considering a more powerful model for the new setup I am pondering — probably a RX 6800 XT).

PS. Here is AnandTech's coverage:

Intel DG2 graphics card now delayed until CES 2022 launch.

It's kind of a mystery that Intel can't make a graphics card that can run Grand Theft Auto, yet is going to make a graphics card for and exascale supercomputer...

Intel is stepping into a highly competitive arena shaped by the long and intense competition between AMD and Nvidia. No wonder they have a hard time pushing out frames at high rates and reasonable power. I guess they have more design leeway in the HPC space.

By the way, one of the discussion points about RX 6600 XT, is that the underlying Navi 23 chip has only 32 MiB of Infinity Cache (cut down from 96 MiB on the larger Navi 22 chip in the RX 6700 XT), which is part of the reason the 6600 XT product is aimed at 1080p gaming only, AnandTech claims. If there is such large effect on performance from the amount of Infinity Cache, you would think GPUs are also ripe for a V-Cache solution. It will be interesting to see how GPU design evolves in the 3D packaging era.

I do wonder if Intel made sure Raja sold all his AMD stock before joining Intel.
