At Computex, AMD & Supermicro CEOs describe AI advances you’ll be adopting soon


Computex 2024 was held this past week in Taipei, Taiwan, with the conference theme of “connecting AI.” Exhibitors featured some 1,500 companies from around the world, and keynotes were delivered by some of the IT industry’s top executives. "AI is our number one priority. We’re at the beginning of an incredibly exciting time for the industry as AI transforms virtually every business, improves our quality of life, and reshapes every part of the computing market." Lisa Su, chairman and CEO of AMD AMD intends to lead in AI solutions by focusing on three priorities: 1. Delivering a broad portfolio of high-performance, energy-efficient compute engines 2. Enabling an open and developer-friendly ecosystem 3. Co-innovating with partners Charles Liang, founder and CEO of Supermicro, dedicated his Computex keynote to the topics of liquid cooling and “green” computing. “Together with our partners,” he said, “we are on a mission to build the most sustainable data centers.” Liang predicted a big change from the present, where direct liquid cooling (DLC) has a less-than-1% share of the data center market. Supermicro is targeting 15% of new data center deployments in the next year, and Liang hopes that will hit 30% in the next two years. Driving this shift are several trends. One is the huge uptake of AI, which requires high-capacity computing. Another is the improvement of DLC technology itself. Supermicro now has capacity to ship 1,000 rack scale solutions with liquid cooling per month, Liang said. In fact, the company is shipping over 50 liquid-cooled racks per day, with installations typically completed within just 2 weeks.
