AMD has been preparing to launch its MI100 accelerator and fight NVIDIA's A100 Ampere GPU in machine learning and AI horizon, and generally compute-intensive workloads. According to some news sources over at AdoredTV, the GPU alleged specifications were listed, along with some slides about the GPU which should be presented at the launch. So to start, this is what we have on the new Radeon MI100 "Arcturus" GPU based on CDNA architecture. The alleged specifications mention that the GPU will feature 120 Compute Units (CUs), meaning that if the GPU keeps the 64-core per CU configuration, we are looking at 7680 cores powered by CDNA architecture.

The leaked slide mentions that the GPU can put out as much as 42 TeraFLOPs of FP32, single-precision compute. This makes it more than twice as fast compared to NVIDIA's A100 GPU at FP32 workloads. To achieve that, the card would need to have all of its 7680 cores running at 2.75 GHz, which would be a bit high number. On the same slide, the GPU is claimed to have 9.5 TeraFLOPs of FP64 dual-precision performance, while the FP16 power is going to be around 150 TeraFLOPs. For comparison, the A100 GPU from NVIDIA features 9.7 TeraFLOPS of FP64, 19.5 TeraFLOPS of FP32, and 312 (or 634 with sparsity enabled) TeraFLOPs of FP16 compute. AMD GPU is allegedly only more powerful for FP32 workloads, where it outperforms the NVIDIA card by 2.4 times. And if that is really the case, AMD has found its niche in the HPC sector, and it plans to dominate there. According to AdoredTV sources, the GPU could be coming in December of this year.

LOL that's text that's been copied in MS Paint and then bucket filled the background around it, but obviously they've missed the original background in the O in Oil, between the C and A in "Academia", and in the P and g of "HPC & ML training". Either it's really amature presentation work- or it's fake. And a really bad fake.

He guessed right a few times, that is enough these days. In some strange reality its apparently not important you missed over half your predictions along with it, I guess that's the internet for ya.

Or maybe they just misinterpreted his funny accent. I can't listen to it for any longer than 5 minutes, and since the man usually has 45+ minute monologues...

To be fair I think even Wccftech has a higher hit rate than him.

Since he got right a lot things, well, he is a source of news as much everyone else is who talks about leaks. People should get over their vendetta against people that they dislike just because they delve more into a particular brand.

We don't dislike him because he's an AMD fanboy.
We dislike him because he's about as trustworthy as the current US president.

Repeating rumours or straight-up making them up is not news, it's FUD. And broken clocks are right twice a day.

That's a broken clock is right twice a day.... Usually in my world there's a couple of times a day in the a.m. and p.m. there's a similar time as the opposite.

Everybody here talking shit about AdoredTV and calling him AMD fanboy, are you even watching him regularly? One here said he can't stand the accent ...that's fair. But to dismiss him like that and even when you don't watch his videos or read the articles in his website.

You do know that he has called out AMD and their shitty Radeon products constantly and praises Nvidia products? Only Intel with his lacluster CPUs and very questionable tactics against smaller companies have been frowned upon by Adored, as it should be. And everybody in right mind should call out Intel about their tactics past 10year, that has led them to this 2 failed node releases (10nm and 7nm).
So get your facts straight and do your homework, before you start to call somebody a fanboy.

Given the quality of today's tech news/reviews he's way from being the worst, and it's a mixture of leaks and speculations to be taken with grain of salt unlike those useless so call reviewers that mislead you, and call their content journalism while it's mere entertainment.

AdoredTV guy was good at analysis, blew it royally with NAVI leaks, which he was basing on some unknown dude sending him emails.
So, on one hand, nothing wrong with him, on the other, where do these leaks come from, another unknown dude sending him emails?

What Navi leaks exactly? You mean at 2018 when there was supposed to come out Navi architecture, but instead we got Radeon VII? If that is the case, it was later confirmed that AMD indeed had Navi in works, but was ditched because it was not as power efficient as they wanted. I would not call that being wrong as early samples were out in 2018, but it never came to realization, but delayed half a year.

He stated it was a failed project, hopeless electricity hog with poor performance, engineers superfrustrated and waiting for the moment when they could move on to another project.

Greenboi might not know, chuckle, but you surely do know how hilariously far all that is from reality.

I'm pro-AMD and I can't watch his stuff. Wccftech levels of accuracy with long, meandering monologues, it's painful.

I don't like to pick on anyone for things they can't control, but that accent does no favors for the videos either...

Yeah, but it was a FAILED product when you have worked so long to get it out and at the last minute you have to push the release further, to get it better. Instead working on RDNA2 or even RDNA3, you have to debug the first iteration. So that was confirmed. For all we know the "black screen of death" was the reason, that original launch was pushed back... and they tried to fix it. Or it could have been number of other problems.
This video is sheding much light to the issue and looking back at this old video, makes a lot clearer.

I am non English speaker and I actually like Scottish accent. Dunno, maybe just me, but that does not make me turn away. It's more painful to listen Chinese or Indian accent English, were it is truly hard to understand some pronunciations.

The problem I have with these are they create a false narrative. Even if the card turns out to be 95% of what these rumours are in terms of performance, it will be a failure in the eyes of some people.

It doesn't work like that, it's not random or just luck when you get right things down to specifics.

I love his accent, he speaks in proper English unlike most other famous YouTubers who struggle to write or speak proper English AKA Americans...
I think he has very good knowledge compared to most YouTubers, but where you venture into leaks and speculations it's hit and miss.

Unless they make way better effort in ROCm, very few would dare to pay for it.

Also, CUDA dominates the existing GPU compute market. I wonder how much use one can make out of these.

Well said, the vast majority of "criticism" I hear against AdoredTV never mentions specifics or provides examples and mostly takes a derogatory and emotional tone with personal attacks, rather than critique driven by evidence. I have no opinion either way, but I do require at least some evidence and/or source citation to take anyone's argument seriously.

Also, aren't leaks always supposed to be taken skeptically? And aren't all leaks, regardless of source, hit or miss? I just don't understand why they're holding AdoredTV personally accountable when he's just relaying some information, seems very personal.

Zen 2 5.1GHz EZ bois just you wait
Vega will crush 1080 Ti it's so powerful just wait
Navi 10 $249 and 150W against 2080! novideo is dead bois

Yeah see I'm firmly of the belief that if you can't cite your source you're full of shit, and if you can site your source you shouldn't be talking. People with inside info don't go blabbing it on Youtube. At this point if Adored gets anything right it's because whoever his "sources" are accidentally predicted something while they were coming up with more fake slides to dangle on a string in front of his face.

He rather famously did a video disproving just that, made a lot of trolls and fanboys angry.

Where else would you go to blab about something ?

Again, you can't predict specifics by accident, you have to accept the fact that no one becomes this famous for getting everything wrong. I know a lot about CPUs and GPUs, certainly more than AdoredTV but other than generic strategies I could never predict products in detail as hard as I may try.

Yeah see I'm firmly of the belief that if you can't cite your source you're full of shit
Most of these leaks come from people working for OEMs, if you say who is telling you all of this stuff there is a very good chance they'll get fired or become unable to provide any more information. If you have a guy giving you inside information and you tell everyone who he is so that people will believe you, you are blithering idiot.
