The Dell PowerEdge XE9680 with AMD Instinct MI300X accelerators and Dell Validated Design for Generative AI with AMD will be available in the first half of 2024.

Dell and AMD are coming together to expand the Dell Generative AI (GenAI) Solutions portfolio. This new technology highlights a pivotal role played by open ecosystems and silicon diversity in empowering customers with simple, trusted and tailored solutions to bring AI to their data.

GenAI is the decade’s most promising accelerator for innovation with 78% of IT decision makers reporting they’re largely excited for the potential GenAI can have on their organizations. Harnessing this technology is critical to ensure organizations can compete in this new digital era. Together with AMD, Dell can offer customers more choice to power their AI and GenAI workloads than before.

“Technology is at an inflection point as powerful IT systems are making it possible for AI to transform how enterprises and industries operate. Today’s computing makes this possible in ways the world’s not seen before. Through our longstanding AMD relationship, we are empowering customers with greater flexibility in trusted and tailored solutions to power their AI and generative AI workloads,” Arthur Lewis, president, Infrastructure Solutions Group, Dell Technologies.

The Dell PowerEdge XE9680, will support the upcoming AMD Instinct MI300X accelerator, offering customers more choice when it comes to AI performance. The PowerEdge XE9680 with AMD Instinct MI300X offers high-performance capabilities for enterprises seeking to unlock the value of their data and differentiate their business with customized large language models (LLMs). Along with the support for the AMD MI300X Instinct Accelerator, Dell is also announcing the next step of Dell Generative AI Solutions, making it easier for organizations to deploy trustworthy GenAI with the new Dell Validated Design for Generative AI with AMD.

This new Dell Validated Design for Generative AI with AMD ROCm powered AI frameworks, available next year, extends the Dell Generative AI Solutions ecosystem and will include open-source LLMs. AMD ROCm is an open-source stack of drivers, dev toolkits and APIs for AMD Instinct accelerators. Dell Validated Designs for Generative AI make it simple for Dell customers to build trusted GenAI platforms tailored to their needs by taking the guesswork out of integration, performance and sizing considerations.

The PowerEdge XE9680 leverages the AMD Instinct Platform powered by eight AMD Instinct MI300X accelerators, enabling near-linear scaling and low latency distributed GenAI training and inferencing with Global Memory Interconnect (xGMI) spanning a cluster of PowerEdge servers interconnecting MI300X GPUs over an Ethernet-based AI fabric using a Dell validated GPU fabric with Dell PowerSwitch Z9664F-ON .
