Over the past decade, many PC players have felt that hardware is squeezing toothpaste, especially processors, and that the performance of upgraded generations has not changed significantly.The only major change in experience is from HDD to SSD.But there are few such technological upheavals.

But in other words, the progress of processors is still very great, which depends on who to compare with.Bitchips, Italy, has made an interesting point a few days ago, that is, the current AMD processor graphics card combined performance is better than 15 years ago TOP500 is the strongest supercomputing, is not surprised?

According to the calculation, the processor combination is a single EPYC 64 core processor and two Radeon VII graphics cards. The floating point performance of the 64 core processor is also 2TFLOPS. the floating point performance of the Radeon VII graphics card is 13.4TFLOPS (FP32 precision, the performance of FP16 doubled), so that the total performance of the single EPYC processor 2 Radeon VII graphics card is close to 29TFLOPS.

What they call supercalculation refers to the Earth Simulator (Earth-Simulator) developed by NEC Company of Japan, which was developed by the Japanese government in 1998 with a total of 5120 cores, floating-point performance 36TFLOPSs, theoretical peak performance 41TFLOPS41TFLOPSs power consumption 3200kW, and won the TOP500 championship from 2002 to 2004.


In direct comparison, the absolute performance of the combination of AMD processor graphics card is still comparable to that of the earth simulator, but considering the huge gap between the two, not to mention the occupation area and cost, the power consumption alone is thousands of times the gap.

By comparison, do you think the development speed and change of the computer industry is still quite big?
