AMD has unveiled its cutting-edge Ryzen CPUs, equipped with Zen microarchitecture, and introduced a groundbreaking addition: the NPU (Neural Processing Unit). This specialized hardware is designed to enhance AI and signal processing capabilities significantly. Marking a milestone, AMD has launched its first-ever NPU, dubbed XDNA, integrated into the Ryzen 7000 series (Phoenix) of mobile processors in 2023.

These advanced Ryzen CPUs with an integrated NPU empower AI PCs to run AI applications directly on the device, efficiently and independently of external hardware or cloud-based services. This innovation brings numerous benefits to users, including heightened productivity, enhanced privacy, boosted creativity, and increased security.

Additionally, AMD provides the Ryzen AI software suite, designed to support developers in creating and deploying AI applications. This is facilitated through tools such as the Vitis AI Execution Provider and ONNX Runtime, which are tailored for use with the Ryzen AI NPU. The package is further enriched with a pre-quantized model zoo and tools for quantization, compilation, profiling, and optimization, ensuring a comprehensive solution for leveraging AI capabilities.

Footnotes:

  • AMD has introduced the XDNA architecture, a spatial dataflow NPU designed to enhance AI and signal processing capabilities. The XDNA architecture includes a tiled array of AI Engine processors, each comprising a vector processor, a scalar processor, and local data and program memories. [Source]
  • Further developments in AMD’s technology include the Ryzen 8000 “Hawk Point” APUs, which feature Zen 4 CPU cores, RDNA 3 GPU architecture, and an upgraded XDNA AI NPU. This NPU can deliver up to 16 TOPs of AI computing, representing a significant upgrade to enhance AI PC ecosystems, particularly in anticipation of future Windows versions that are expected to integrate AI functionalities heavily. [Source]
  • AMD’s Ryzen 7040 Series Mobile processors have been specifically highlighted for introducing Ryzen AI, marking the first dedicated artificial intelligence hardware in an x86 processor. This technology aims to deliver enhanced performance for real-time AI experiences, with Ryzen processors equipped with Ryzen AI outperforming competitors in both performance and energy efficiency. The Ryzen AI software suite supports these capabilities, allowing for efficient offloading of AI workloads onto the NPU, thereby improving power efficiency and overall battery life. [Source]
  • The forthcoming XDNA 2 NPU, which is expected to launch with Strix Point in 2024, promises to elevate generative AI performance further, boasting more than three times the performance of the current XDNA NPU used in the Ryzen 7040 series. [Source]

In summary, AMD’s advancements in integrating AI capabilities directly into their Ryzen CPUs through the XDNA architecture and the introduction of dedicated NPUs in their mobile processor lines underscore their commitment to enhancing AI performance and efficiency in computing. These developments enhance the capabilities of AI PCs and signal a significant shift in how computing tasks, particularly AI-driven ones, are approached and managed within the PC ecosystem.
