    47 tiles, now, that's impressive.

    "Yeah, that does put a GPU named like Big NAVI to shame really."

    No, it doesn't. Not in the slightest. It's a GPU, FFS. Where is the shame? I don't see it.

    The fact is AMD has extensive experience in multi-chip module designs. If they wanted to build a GPU with an MCM design don't you think they would?

    RDNA3, or more than likely RDNA4, will be MCM design. Will be interesting if they copy what they did in the CPU space and have an I/O die for a huge amount of L3 cache (infinity cache) to feed all the other GPU chiplets. Or if they will specify each chiplet to do different things? Like have 4 GPU chiplets, 2 for graphics compute, 1 for ray traced effects, and 1 for some form of upscaling tech? Then a 5th chiplet as an I/O die with a few GB of cache?

    Now I think about it maybe each chiplet would have its own smaller amount of infinity cache (L3) then the I/O die could have a large pool of shared cache (L4?) which would pull data from an even larger pool of VRAM (GDDR6/7). Or will HBM2/3 finally be viable by then?

    Luckily supercomputer builders make deals directly with Intel (or a company like HP that speaks for Intel in such a case), so miners can't snatch all of those super GPUs.

    100 billion transistors and RTX 3090 just 28.3b. So that mean intel is 3x faster than the RTX 3090

    who knows, could be as fast as an hypothetical 3090 3 way SLI

    I can't wait to not get my hands on these Intel $50,000 GPUs.
