Unlocking AI's Future with Intel AMX: A Deep Dive into Performance Enhancement

The Advent of Intel Advanced Matrix Extensions

Intel Advanced Matrix Extensions (Intel AMX), a groundbreaking innovation in computing and a pivot for Intel's new Xeon Scalable 4th Generation processors. Intel AMX propels deep learning, AI training, and inference to new heights, showcasing its critical role in the acceleration of AI operations.

Innovative Hardware feature of Intel AMX

Intel AMX introduces a unique hardware elements in each core from the processor like dedicated TILES and TMUL operations, which revolutionizes matrix mutiplication efficiency. This enhacement is crucial for AI and deep learning computations, offering a fresh perspective on processing complex AI workloads.

Enhancing Performance with Intel AMX

Intel AMX boosts deep learning operations by enhancing the CPU efficiency for a range of tasks including natural language processing, and image recognition. With the help of Graphical Processing Units (GPUs) computer systems will have a boost in performance when it comes to data processing for AI, deep learning and Large Language Models (LLMs). Python libraries such as PyTorch have an increase of 10x the speed for both real-time inference and training with the built-in AMX (BF16) versus the older version.

Framework Integration and Developer Empowerment

Intel AMX seamlessly integrates with leading deep learning frameworks, supported by the oneDNN library. This compatibility ensures that developers can easily harness AMX's power, to optmize the AI models without overhauling the existing workflows. Intel AMX accelerates the performance of generative AI development including videos, images, audio, language translation and data augmentation

What is TILE and TMUL Data Types?

Tiles are hardware that cosists of eight two-dimensional registers, each with 1 Kb in size, and have the objective of storaging large chunks of data. While Tile Matrix Multiplication (TMUL), is an accelerator engine attached to the tiles that performs matrix-multiplication computations for AI. Together, these component allow the Intel AMX to store more data on each core of the CPU and compute larger matrices in a single operation, allowing scalability for Large Language Models (LLMs).


Intel AMX to conclude is a an accelerator hardware component attached to each core of the new 4th Generation Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs, that allow for faster and bigger AI matrix computations along with storage that will allow the data to be kept safe before being transferred to a long-term format of data storage once the matrix multiplications are finished for a specific task.
