    You are absolutely correct.
    The "real" machine learn cards are Google's TPU's, an ASIC.
    Tensor cores are just the best we have on consumer hardware to run neural net code.
    This links explains a bit how neural nets work, which in turn makes one understand why tensor cores are much better than traditional GPU compute units to run such code:

    Hopefully this beast of a card won't fall down due to driver or design issues like the Rage Fury Maxx.

    It's not a gaming card with crossfire. It's much easier to use multiple GPU chips for compute tasks, than real time gaming.

    A 23 year old card is what you’re going to compare this card with? Completely ignoring that in the past decade ATi/AMD has had numerous dual GPU single PCB releases. Often well received other than crossfire woes.

    That screen reminds me of Carmack using a 1080p monitor to work on Quake back in 95.

    Yet its a monitor that competes with 30-40k monitors. Like you were the target audience lol.

    Congrats on reinventing Vesa Local Bus.

    I always thought it was 'Very Long Bus'...
