Taking A Superhybrid Approach To HPC/AI Convergence

AMD has been on such a run with its future server CPUs and server GPUs in the supercomputer market, taking down big deals for big machines coming later this year and out into 2023, that we might forget sometimes that there are many more deals to be done and that neither Intel nor Nvidia are inactive when it comes to trying to get their compute engines into upper echelon machines.
