AMD Posts Ryzen AI Software Platform Preview for Developers

Although AMD says its Ryzen 7040-series accelerated processing units with the company’s Ryzen AI hardware engine have been shipping for well over half of a year now, there were no publicly available tools to make use of it. That changed this week, as AMD posted version 0.8 of its Ryzen AI Software Platform.

AMD’s Ryzen AI for Windows is a hardware unit built into the company’s Ryzen 7040-series APUs based on the Zen 4 microarchitecture. AMD’s Vitis AI offers a robust toolset for AI inference, seamlessly integrating with popular frameworks like TensorFlow, PyTorch, and ONNX.
