    Very nice. Exceeding A100 40gb fp64 performance, I guess AMD wanted to make a point of it, so that must be why Nvidia announced their new 80gb card the same time!

    Makes you wonder could they also do the consumer product with more CUs, if possible I see refreshes with 90+ and more Ram to counter the Ti cards

    It's a different architecture but obviously it's possible to just scale up.. the only thing stopping them is cost, which goes up exponentially the bigger the GPU. Enterprise isn't going to bat an eye paying $10k (or whatever the price is) for a 720mm2 7nm card. A consumer on the other hand? Probably not.
