AMD Zen4 architecture of the sharp dragon 7000 series will support Intel AVX-512 for the first time, although only a part and not the full body, but also a major breakthrough, especially Intel Core 12/13 generation because of the hybrid architecture instead of opening this instruction set, more first to extraordinary.
AVX-512 has been born for many years, but the scope of application has been small, the most familiar to ordinary players is probably the extreme baking when the ultra-high power consumption.
According to AMD’s official statement, Zen4 AVX-512 instruction set is mainly used for AI, HPC application acceleration, FP32 floating point inference multi-threaded performance can be increased by up to 1.3 times, INT8 integer inference multi-threaded performance can be increased by up to 2.5 times.
Joey (Wunkolo), a graphics engineer from Riot Games, is very interested in AMD Zen4 AVX-512 instruction set support and has added corresponding optimizations in a series of emulators.
Specifically include: Switch emulator Yuzu, 3DS emulator Citra, PS Vita emulator Vita3K, Xbox 360 emulator Xenia.
If you run these emulators using the Raider 7000 series platform, it will bring extremely obvious performance improvements, but the exact magnitude of the improvement is not said.
Based on experience, when the 12th generation Core was initially still available with AVX-512, the performance of PS3 emulator RPCS3 was improved by up to 30%, but then Intel forced the AVX-512 to block the 12th generation Core.
