    Yeah, he just said hardware isn't his area:

    I think the market for dual-GPU cards is small enough they'll only make a Pro II Duo. Pricing will probably be closer to $3k than $1500.

    I wish I had a good reason to snatch up a Radeon VII, but I can't justify it. I'll probably think of one, just after the channel has completely cleared out.

      AMD is still selling them direct from amd.com. I just bought one. Possible reasons: compute, AI/ML (tensorflow runs well on the VII). It runs games well at 4K on Windows.

        Thanks for the tip. I didn't think they'd all dried up, just yet.

        No, I haven't played any games in years, and after buying too many things that just collect dust, I now force myself to wait until I actually have a specific use for something, before buying it. And although I've done a bit of OpenCL and OpenGL programming, my current GPUs are more than enough for my modest needs.

        There is something attractive about Radeon VII as quite possibly the apotheosis of GCN. If it weren't so pricey, that might be reason enough to snag one.
