    What if I want a baker's dozen? So I still can't use 13 cards concurrently? :p

    wasted time to support the mining bubble i guess.

    I m just worried when the mining bubble is over, they are left with a bunch of angry gamers.

    Only compute workloads, where they said they'd reduce multi GPU support for graphics? I would not have expected that tbh.

    One use that I can see this feature being used for is to make Virtual PC out of actual hardware like what Linus of Linus Tech Tips did. Or a mining rig of some kind.

    To my knowledge, just 8 for the closed drivers (which you need for OpenCL). I figure open-source divers allow for as many GPUs as you can fit. But, this might also just be the limit for graphics rendering, I'm not sure about compute. Nvidia I think allows for 16 GPUs, regardless of what you intend to do.

    An easy workaround to use more would be to use a virtual machine and passthrough any remaining GPUs.

    Thanks for the answer.I was just wondering what are limitation,i know basically there is no limit in Linux (i am rocking currently OpenSuse),but i have good ole HD4890/1GB so i cant test or know about newer graphics.

    compute is for mining ... for video / 3d rendering you use the driver like u always use it.
