    Phoronix: Tiny Corp Changes Course Yet Again With Plans To Offer AMD Radeon GPUs

    It was just last week that Tiny Corp put their AMD Radeon graphics powered compute boxes "on hold" after being frustrated with the lack of select firmware source code and ultimately hitting various bugs. This wasn't the first time they had put their AMD Radeon graphics plans on-hold or dismissed it outright. With the start of the new week now comes plans to re-introduce an AMD Radeon graphics option for their compute boxes alongside their recently announced NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 compute rigs...

    George Hotz' progress-to-noise ratio does not seem particularly high.

      tinycorp has actually been making some good progress on their deep learning framework, they run tinygrad which is actually quite the nice api https://github.com/tinygrad/tinygrad and tinycorp/tinygrad is what powers the AI behind openpilot https://github.com/commaai/openpilot/ which is the open source drive assist that powers comma ai

      EDIT: s/compute api/deep learning framework

        That website reads like a Donald Trump post....if he was from a non-English country posting back in 1994.

        It has over 9000 GitHub stars

          They are changing directions faster than a hunted rabbit.

            If you pause and unpause, at which point have you changed direction?

              That's being a bit ridicoulous for a company steer a way and another in terms of days.

              It was already smelling the last time they ranted over the inability to do debug on AMD platform as they were "not enough open source" and then declaring they were testing nvidia platform which are miles away from being open source.

              My 2 cents, that I won't give them anyway.

                Does AMD still doesn't have the money to fix their problems or they just like to pretend that they don't?
                Or it has bad top management like Mozilla?

                  All that money spent on an EPYC CPU and they couldn't afford an Instinct GPU?

                  And they wonder why the driver crashes? It's probably something with their half-assed design and probably poor quality and unverified to work together parts.

                    see below, but the TLDR is they want to support amd a lot and have finally found a string to hang upon

                    you clearly completely missed the mark here, they didn't rant over the inability to debug AMD, they ranted about the inability to do so, WHILE amd having complete and utter trash reliability, unlike Nvidia. See Nvidia is actually good for compute unlike AMD. AMD and it's fanboys hides behind the shield of "It's open source" to deflect criticism about it's trash reliability. So Tinycorp tried to put money where their mouth is, and fix it for them. Then they came up against "Well shit, it may be open source in some areas, but not where the problem we need to fix is"

                    You see, tinycorp wants really badly to support AMD and they physically couldn't, at least that was true until they found UMR, Now they have a tool which can help debug these issues.‚Äč
