    need to leave something for the AIB partners to play around with :-)
  • bhuvahh - Tuesday, November 15, 2022 - link

    The issues with multi-GPU mostly had to do with latency and memory access. Those can be solved when the two dies are right next to each other and use advanced interconnects.
  • realbabilu - Thursday, November 3, 2022 - link

    1. nice fp64 capability 3.226Tflops. hopefully a lot render program using opencl appear
    2. Hopefully it can render raytrace on Lumion, d5, enscape, twin motion
  • HardwareDufus - Sunday, November 6, 2022 - link

    Bit disappointed that these Cards can't take 3 DP monitors without Dongles.

    A card this expensive is only attractive if my 3 4K 32" LG monitors can be attached for Flight Simulator.

    This is a good and new product on the market. I have used this CPU for my device and am very satisfied.
