I have benchmarked the new @AMDInstinct MI250 #GPU at @fzj_jsc, and it is disappointing but also impressive. Let me explain.

#HPC #Top500 #MI200 #Exascale Image The #MI250 is misleadingly marketed as "one chiplet GPU" with 13312C, 90TFLOPs & 128GB @ 3.2TB/s.

But it is not. The 2 GCDs are 2 separate GPUs with 64GB each, like a K80 dual-GPU but in a socket. One #GPU can't directly access the other's memory.
