    Rather cool that a 7nm GPU is running or working:



    I wonder what changes to Vega was done besides 1/2 FP 64? Also if a Titan V type card or newer FE could come out of this?
     
    Red Falcon and erek like this.

    This will not be a gaming product. They desperately need to create a viable deep learning / ai card that can compete with nvidia on the performance/watt scale. However it will pave the way for 7nm

    I am thinking more inline of a professional version for the public vice just Instinct, Titan V type card with all the trimmings and maybe some shaders/memory missing like the Titan V. RTG need to step the pace regardless with real available products and less talk.

    I agree with you that there is certainly market potential for increasing their post crypto product portfolio and becoming more competitive in the AI / Deep Learning spheres is vital.

    I've always wondered if the only reason AMD/NVIDIA never released a dedicated mining rig was because their board partners would have shit a brick from all the lost sales it would have lead to. It's not just Nvidia/AMD getting fat off the electricity destroyer that is crypto, but also the ASUS, GIGABYTE, EVGA and MSI of the world that are along for the ride.

    Regardless, back on topic, I think a lot of the decision making for road maps is being facilitated in a post crypto environment, where the professional field needs healthy competition once again.
