While Microsoft partners with NVIDIA for processors in its flagship Surface Laptop Studio PCs, the company is opting to use AMD accelerator Instinct M1300X chips in its datacenters.

During AMD’s Advancing AI Event, the company took the stage to off a bevy of news regarding its plan to combat the recent influx of NVIDIA-led processor competition surrounding AI focused GPUs and demand.

On stage, AMD CEO Lisa Su unveiled the Instinct MI300X GPU and hybrid CPU-GPU MI300A APU which the company claims have a 1.6X lead ahead of NVIDIA’s own competing GPU performance.

In part, AMD was able to achieve its claimed supremacy with its new MI300 architecture that includes a design that involves 13 chiplets built in a 3D-stack that incorporates twenty-four Zen 4 CPU cores meshed with CDNA 3 graphics engine and eight stacks of high-bandwidth memory (HBM3) with an overall size of 146 billion transistors.

The M1300X marks the largest chip that AMD has produced to date.
