AMD GPUs will become available to use on Google's Cloud computing platform in 2017, showcasing demand for AMD products on the HPC market and a potential loss of market share for Nvidia moving forward. 

This means that Google will be purchasing AMD's fastest available single-precision compute accelerators, the FirePro S9300 x2, to power their cloud services, making AMD GPU resources available to people across the globe. 

In recent years AMD has been investing in the GPU compute market, recently creating their HIP porting tool for CUDA applications and their announcement of their new Radeon Open Compute Platform (ROCm), which aims to make parallel computing with AMD GPUs easier than ever before. 

 

     Graphics processors represent the best combination of performance and programmability for existing and emerging big data applications,

 The adoption of AMD GPU technology in Google Cloud Platform is a validation of the progress AMD has made in GPU hardware and our Radeon Open Compute Platform, which is the only fully open source   hyper-scale GPU compute platform in the world today. We expect that our momentum in GPU computing will continue to accelerate with future hardware and software releases and advances in the ecosystem of middleware and libraries.

In recent years Nvidia has been dominant in the GPU data-center and deep learning markets, though AMD is making some positive steps to take some market share moving forward. Hopefully, this new market will allow AMD to gain an additional revenue stream and help AMD create more powerful and efficient compute products moving forward.
