    Well within 3d
    At least for FP64, a GCN product can readily adjust the rate from the silicon's physical rate to as low as 1/16 after manufacturing. It's possible there was some late-stage wavering on the specific rate as various parties argued for one direction or another. The messaging could reflect the unsettled internal debates.

    Possibly it was settled with bare-knuckle boxing, depending on how beat up did some of the sources looked. ;)

    hello folks, reading least 2 posts from web saying Radeon 7 do not support crossfire, is that true?!

    do not understand why AMD doing this, since i am a dual Vega64 owner.

    there is no point of upgrade since some title scaling CF quiet good. a single Radeon 7 only offer 25% performance boost?

    if i understand correctly Instinct MIx0 was designed for data center with 1TB/s memory bandwidth. How gaming or desktop app drain that from Radeon 7?

    Probably just the usual fear-mongering.

    Not a bad decision imho. Will make FP64 usable, but nowhere near enough to cannibalize Pro cards.
    And as a bonus reviewers can throw in 1 or 2 benchmarks showcasing this advantage vs the competition

    $699 for 16GB of HBM2 tells me AMD might need a trick or two.

    Do they usually have a 2 year warranty on GPU's?

    For me neither.

    Still in browser cache maybe? Or geo locked?

    edit: Anyhow, I don't think AMD would remove crossfire from RVII for those who are willing to use it.

    That page is clearly incomplete in terms of features, they're lacking Eyefinity and VSR too, which were listed with Vega, for example

    :runaway: :confused:

    EDIT: This ridiculous sentence apparently isn't some lost in translation stuff but must originate from AMD's marketing team given that it shows up on all AIB product pages (AsRock's Radeon VII) ..:nope:
