AMD Expands High Performance Computing Fund

AMD announced the expansion of its high-performance computing (HPC) fund, adding 7 petaflops of computing power to help researchers around the world solve today’s toughest challenges facing society.

AMD also announced that the AMD HPC Fund will now integrate the Xilinx Heterogeneous Accelerated Computing Cluster (HACC) program to provide researchers access to AMD EPYC processors, AMD Instinct accelerators, Xilinx Alveo accelerators, and Xilinx Versal ACAP Use permissions to advance research in climate change, healthcare, transportation, big data, and more.

As of May 2022, this new contribution brings the total amount of computing power donated by AMD to over 20 petaflops, with a market value of over $31 million.

These additional computing resources will be fed into the AMD COVID-19 HPC Fund, which was established in 2020 to provide research institutions with computing resources to advance medical research on COVID-19 and other diseases.

To date, AMD has donated computing systems or cloud-based computing power to more than 28 research institutions in 8 countries.

To date, nearly 6,000 researchers have used AMD technology in their research projects and published 55 papers on racial and ethnic differences in COVID-19 vaccination rates and breast enhancement through deep vision technology key issues such as classification of cancer images.
