That tweest in the 2nd episode of Deca-Dence.
What the fuck
Arcturus can't into 3D, has no display engines and is not a GPU at all.
Only for a very specific AAPL-approved codec the likes of RED slaves don't even touch.
tl;dr Apple needs a proper not-a-joke GPU.
They don't control anything 3rd party.
3rd party stuff which is necessary to make AAPL toys into something besides world's most expensive lineup...
The first episode of Deca-Dence looks solid, but it's 3 episode rule as usual with any original.
They're xtor-dense MAC piles.
Nah, see RDNA2 stuffz and Zen3 and Kirin 990 5G.
Kinda, depends on the implementation.
Zen2 CCD is mostly SRAM, but is nowhere near the peak theoretical density (or what mobile SoCs achieve for...
Nah, it's due to all the MAC piles required for GEMM going brrrrr at alarming speeds.
See any other ML part; they all hit very nice density...
Most RDNA and RDNA2 parts should have comparable density.
Real world density is a very tricky thing impacted by multitude of design considerations.
No because those have wildly different design rules.
The first die is a go.
Nah, only Genoa is 2021 for select customers*.
(*not you, or me, or anyone not Super8)
They were also the sole driving force for things like Crystalwell.
Because Llano in macs never reached product development stage due to...
It was unapologetically late.
(reminds you of 10nm haha)
Yeah but the CPU part was years behind Intel when it actually launched.
That's what you get for setting your roadmaps on fire.
Applies to Intel, too, since Intel goes byebye soon.
Mean, maybe green.
And soon-ish. Pretty sure soon-ish.
LITE doesn't indicate console relationship as is, we've had other LITE stuff that's...
Yeah unless you need to squeeze like every ounce of either power of bandwidth available.
Which is either DC or premium mobile, and N21 is neither.
These numbers don't mean anything, product-wise.
N22 is upper-midrange desktop and mobile.
Yeah it's a very green'n'mean setup there (same for Ampere more or less), cheap denoising is the next frontier now.
Yes but demand is the big player here.
Yeah where volumes are small so you don't have to fight all the HPC and networking horseshit over KGSD...
Yeah, even with HiSilicon leaving.
Oh yeah they do.
But so does AMD; for speed daemon GPU age is nigh.
Super SKUs are the obvious response to anything Navi.
More GPU for less money, even with more VRAM here and there.
Between voluntary margin cuts and involuntary mss loss nVidia always picks the former.
idk ask the poor cuDNN devs lmao
You can also wait till Graphcore shrinks their vaporware for real many dumb xtors@mm^2 goodness.
New TCs are very green, and very mean.
I doubt it hits 400W workload power in generic non-GEMM FP32/64/you name it.
Yeah the client Volta3 is a...
Yeah, the latter is more of a Qualcomm-tier happening, and we all know what happened to QC GPU lead.
Like 3% server and some 4-5% client over 3 years is about as unimpressive as it gets.
Good margin expansion and debt control, yeah, but still....
Also, AMD's CPU division has proven that it is possible to topple goliath will a well timed shot.
Idk, AMD isn't making any money while Intel is...
Depends on what you want from it.
Current AMD is a very tightly ran ship yeah.
But it's somewhere Q3 launch so soon(TM).
Eh GEMM cores now go brrrrrrr even in FP64 proper + it is a solid bandwidth uptick.
Arcturus is yeah, a far meaner GPGPU actual part, but it has...
Yeah A100 is a funky GEMM machine, but nothing snazzy besides that.
Which works for intended market, but may or may not piss the wide and varied...
ODI is very not soon(TM).
Also Co-EMIB is not ODI.
Yeah because nothing works without lotsa DTCO these days.
~Q3 or so.
Depends on how it goes now lmao, with both customers and supply chains being lowkey on fire.
Either console silicon or N21.
Only some SRAM macros iirc.
That's not even remotely relevant to their design methodologies but still.
Yeah RDNA2 is the first time they've been applying their super-sleek CPU design methodologies to GPUs.
La-la-la remember what TSMC said about their advanced packaging roadmap lo-lo-lo.
Yeah, all this stuff was definitely made for GDC, which went kaput.
At least they showed thingies.
That's how all ISVs and IHVs collaborate tbh.
Yeah N22 assuming it's alive and assumung it lands on client boards.
Wasn't this supposed to be shown at GDC (before it dies, that is)?
Yeah for a good reason, too.
DirectStorage (the newest thing so far) is also not there.
(very shiny, my poor eyes)
Obviously, but we're talking exotic SKUs, not exotic cooling.
Think of Sapphire Toxic kind of SKU.
