    It's not "dead", it's just not a focal point. If it were dead, nvlink wouldn't be on brand new cards.

    What is dead is a physical bridge on AMD cards, they no longer "need" them (not sure how accurate that is in regards to "need", but regardless, they don't have them). I don't know if they are only supported on specific cards, or all GCN 3.0 (maybe 2.0?) cards support it.

    Dual gpu+ will never be abandoned. I've said it before, but, I think dual gpu will eventually make a comeback when they can no longer shrink the manufacturing process down anymore. However, we will more than likely see multiple gpu chips on one card (acting like 1 gpu), rather than multiple cards becoming the standard. 3nm is on the horizon, so, I think we're still way off those times.

    Anyway, this news article is very interesting. It would make sense that AMD's x700 series isn't their highest-end offering. We've commonly seen them release x800 etc alongside as the higher-end model.

    fond memories? lucky you all the franken cards I had sucked at launch
    48x2 59 98gx2 not to mention the 38x2 and 79gx2
    first cards sucked you would run better 2 card cf/sli lol
    the 295 was best at launch driver wise.

    it seemed with better tools on the nv side you could get lucky with a custom profile to help yourself out.amd seemed to walk away from it stuff was never fixed that was dx9 days last time on 2,3,4 290's was a lot better like night and day I was talking back in the day
    i dont think we want to see that x2 again from amd because the worse thing is it will stifle your progress and innovation.
    if anyone could jam two cores on a pbc and make money nv would have done it not even on 7nm yet. amd might d0 that thou to revile the 2080ti that would beat it pretty good for 100 less? they could get top card easy
    ha jaja I just wonder

    Anything above the 5700XT is probably Navi 20. Most likely next year.

    Two more years of wait. While not dual GPU, still multiple chips on board in form of chiplets..

    Oh i really hope there's no GCN in the 5000 series. I'm so done with that whole mix-matched architecture within a generation stuff.

    well if they rebrand 570 and 580 to .... 5500 and 5550 ...they will be awesome budget cards with glofo still on contract might not be out of the question to use the capacity of that fab for this reason , but as i said i have no idea just guessing at random :p
