    if this is a 24TFLOPs card... would make a serious contender to the P100 line as well as anything under it in terms of performance...


    Now that I think about it what with what's being promised in the CPU/server world in the coming year or so, I am thrilled to learn there is more and more competition going on! :D

    :cheers:

    That is half-precision, .... so if correct, that would be roughly half of that for full 32-bit precision.

    AMD just release something already, so that Nvidia stops abusing market and its pricing policy.

    So AMD will maybe release something close to GTX1070, 6 months after Nvidia. What about answer to GTX1080, that will come a year after Nvidia launch?

    "shatter"? You mean chatter it appears.

    I'm not going to say what "shat everywhere" means in English... but remember the bedsheets and Spud in Trainspotting for an example.

    I hope it's a beast of a single GPU card. A dual GPU card (unless it's viewed as one card by the system), would be game over for the high end sector.

    I bet it'll be dual GPU Polaris.

    Use up all those chips at the end of the year, ready for a relatively early Vega presence following Zen.

    If they pushed out a Vega part now, they'd risk undermining 480 sales.

    I think you're right.

    As long as I want in to be a brand new chip and beast single chip card, I dont think AMD can afford it.

    I don't remember they do something like this at all. NVIDIA was like always hitting they face first with "Ti" and "Titan" cards.

    I also think it won't be Vega, but dual Polaris instead. Based on the release of the AMD PRO DUO for developers earlier this year it would make some sense.

    I hope it is a single card with at least GTX1080 performance NVidia needs a competitor and we do otherwise GPU prices WILL KEEP GOING UP.

    If it's dual Polaris, it's going to be largely meaningless. But if they still can't get VEGA out for whatever reason, I guess they can release a meaningless card that's only good on paper to kill some time. AMD itself keeping silent about this does suggest it's not a card worth mentioning. If it was Vega with an imminent launch, you'd think AMD would go all out pre-marketing it. However, nobody wise would really try to build hype around a dual-GPU card with the current Crossfire reliability.

    I hope is not a dual Polaris gpu card as we all know sli and crossfire already went they way of the Dodo bird. I expect a full Big Vega10 but not on December , as stated already by AMD offical information Big Vega10 will be release quarter one of 2017 and that's what i expect. Let's hope for the best :)

    I wont be dual gpu:infinity:

    Also its going to be faster then 1080gtx with 12tflops,. It will rival TitanXP, not that it will be barely faster then 1070gtx (980TI, 1070, 1080 is FuryX territory, now you do the math) :grin:

    I said it in another thread, IF this card is a dual-gpu then it's a massive, massive fail, given the state of multi-gpu at this moment in time... they NEED to pull out a good, to very good single GPU if they want to even remotely compete with nvidia.
