The AMD Alveo™ U50 Data Center accelerator cards provide optimized acceleration for workloads in financial computing, machine learning, computational storage, and data search and analytics. Built on AMD UltraScale+ architecture and packaged up in an efficient 75-watt, small form factor, and armed with 100 Gbps networking I/O, PCIe Gen4, and HBM, Alveo U50 is designed for deployment in any server.
Alveo accelerator cards are adaptable to changing acceleration requirements and algorithm standards, capable of accelerating any workload without changing hardware, and reduce overall cost of ownership.
Enabling Alveo accelerator cards is an ecosystem of AMD and partner applications for common Data Center workloads. For custom solutions, Application Developer Tool Suite (Vitis™ environment) and Machine Learning Suite from AMD provide the frameworks for developers to bring differentiated applications to market.

We’ve developed an ecosystem of AMD and partner solutions for most common workloads. Alveo Data Center accelerator cards can deliver dramatic acceleration across a broad set of applications and are reconfigurable to provide an ideal fit for the changing workloads of the modern data center. Compare how Alveo Data Center accelerator cards perform compared to traditional CPU architectures.
The U50 Alveo Data Center accelerator card supports both Vivado design entry as well as a Vitis software platform. The Vivado flow is recommended for FPGA designers that want to use traditional design flows, such as RTL or HLx, while the Vitis software platform is recommended for SW developers. Select the Vitis or Vivado tab below for the steps to get started.
