Fast technology June 30 news, we all know that NVIDIA's leading position in the field of game cards and AI acceleration cards, especially the latter is now beautiful.
The reason why NVIDIA has such a position, in addition to powerful hardware, the more critical reason is the deep cultivation in development support, very friendly to developers and scene landing, CUDA has formed an unbreakable barrier.
AMD's gap in this area is quite large, often designing very good hardware but failing to reach its full potential.
As early as 2015, AMD proposed a new ROCm development platform for GPU computing, but it has not been easy to use, and hardware support is not in place.
AMD is also aware of this problem, CEO Su Zifeng previously announced that ROCm will be a major reform, support Windows system, support Radeon gaming graphics cards.
In April of this year, AMD finally delivered on this promise, ROCm came to Windows for the first time, and the first supported hardware is Radeon Pro W6800, RX 6900 XT, RX 6600, all of which are RDNA2 architectures.
Now, The new ROCm 5.6 has been released, in addition to continuing to support the RDNA2 architecture of Radeon Pro V620, W6800 professional graphics card, will also support the RDNA3 architecture for the first time, The Radeon Pro W7900 48GB professional graphics card and Radeon RX 7900 XTX 24GB gaming graphics card are both based on Navi 31 cores.
However, That won't happen until this fall, and the support is Linux onlyNo timetable was given for when to join Windows.
AMD also promised that support for more graphics cards and functions will be gradually added in the future.
