Matrix-Multiply Assist Architecture
The Matrix-Multiply Assist (MMA) architecture is introduced in Power ISA v3.1. Several new concepts are described in this chapter, such as:
•An introduction of accumulator registers
•New compute instructions for the matrix multiplication operation
•Support for lower precision arithmetic beyond single- and double-precision
2.1 Data types
MMA architecture supports both floating-point and integer data types. This support was introduced because of the growing requirements of future AI-inferencing models.
The following ...
