AMD Radeon Instinct MI100: specs and benchmarks

AMD Radeon Instinct MI100


This is CDNA 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 7 nm+ manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 32 GB of HBM2 memory clocked at 2 GHz are supplied, and together with 4096 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 1,024 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is Dual-slot card attached via PCIe 4.0 x16 interface. Its manufacturer default version has a length of 267 mm. 1x 8-pin power connector is required, and power consumption is at 200 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.12 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
